Description

The design shows a view from the inner yard of the world-famous Dresden Zwinger to the Crown Gate.
The Zwinger is a palace in the eastern German city of Dresden: it is an architectural complex built in Baroque style, between 1709/1710 and 1732/1733 at the behest of Augustus II of Poland. The name derives from the German word Zwinger (an enclosed killing ground in front of a castle or city gate); it was for the cannons that were placed between the outer wall and the major wall. The Zwinger was not enclosed until the Neoclassical building by Gottfried Semper called the Semper Gallery was built on its northern side.
