  6. Yes the Chinesische Haus at Potsdam is such a wonderfully complete chinoiserie environment, inside and out. And the murals inside are extraordinary, too - no doubt you will be showing more images shortly.

    I just read your article about chinoiserie at Artisphere Online (http://bit.ly/fQhuGX) and I so agree with your comment that every era has created its own version of chinoiserie. I think one of the most fascinating things about this style is what it tells us about ourselves (and about seventeenth- and eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe and America).

  7. Emile, thanks for stopping by... I adore your blog. I wish I could have got inside this pavilion, it seems every time I visit it is winter and the thing is closed until April. what torture! When will I learn to check opening dates before planning travel? I did get a great Chinoiserie fix at Charlottenburg so I feel a little better.
