The Old Observatory Mannheim. Views of a tower

A virtual exhibition organised by Aktionsbündnis Alte Sternwarte Mannheim / Stadtbild Mannheim e.V. and Künstlernachlässe Mannheim

The Old Observatory Mannheim is one of the oldest buildings in the city and is unique in Baden-Württemberg. From 1775 to 1880, astronomical research was carried out here, which became a "trademark", especially under the astronomer Christian Mayer during the reign of Elector Carl Theodor (1742 - 1799). The building was a prominent network point for regional and international land surveys. From 1908 to 2012, it was a studio building for artists. With its beautiful architecture, the tower was and still is a popular motif for engravings, paintings, postcards and photographs. We present a brief overview with historical and current views. Have fun looking at it!

Böckstiegel writes. A look at the artist's correspondence

A virtual exhibition organised by the Kreisarchiv Gütersloh and the Peter-August-Böckstiegel-Stiftung
 

Using selected letters, photos and historical documents from the written estate, you can experience not only the artist, but also the family man Peter August Böckstiegel. The correspondence provides a very precise picture of the family's everyday life. At the same time, the letters are also a great commentary on the creation of the artworks: they describe the current status of the works, the hopes for a successful outcome and further plans for paintings and sculptures.
