Essay
The watercolor, executed in subtly graded colors, shows a truly royal view of the Leeberg pavilion on Tegernsee, site of the congregation of the three kings Maximilian I Joseph of Bavaria, Franz Joseph I of Austria and tsar Alexander I of Russia. Today a memorial stone commemorates the historical event. Back in those days, as well as today, visitors of the pavilion overlook the landscape around the lake with the Wittelsbach summer residence at the former Tegernsee monastery. [FS]
