About this artwork

Quaglio shared the German Romantic fondness for lithography and nostalgia for medieval architecture. Unusually vivid in its use of tint-stone coloring, Quaglio’s glowing lithograph depicts the internal chamber of a chapel as if it were not only illuminated, but suffused with fire. Documenting dozens of similar sites across Germany, he would later gain a commission to restore Hohenschwangau Castle to its Gothic glory.
