The Christmas season has arrived again and with it something that is fast becoming a tradition at the Staatliche Museen: the Advent calendar quiz on our YouTube channel. Twenty-four tales about objects in our collections are told each day until Christmas. With each day, a new door is opened on the incredible secrets kept at the Staatliche Museen… Did Paul Klee really mix ground porcelain into his paints? Did Correggio's Leda lose her head in a frenzied attack by the French regent's son, Louis d'Orléans? Would the Brandenburg Gate be without its famous quadriga and charioteer if it weren't for a cast kept at the Gipsformerei? If you think you know the answers to these questions and many more, check out our YouTube channel and start playing our Advent quiz. Are these tales true or false?
