Prussia Art and Architecture (Könemann, 1999; eds. Gert Streidt and Peter Feierabend) is a comprehensive book of the architectural achievements of the German state of Prussia. The expert contributions are by Klaus Arlt, Ernst Badstübner, Gerd Bartoschek, Annette Dorgerloh, Hans-Joachim Giersberg, Burkhardt Göres, Sepp-Gustav Gröschel, Saskia Hüneke, Claudia Meckel, Bernd Nicolai, Wasilissa Pachomova-Göres, Karola Paepke, Corina Pertschi, Heinz Schönemann, Michael Seiler, Irmtraud Thierse, and Christoph Martin Vogtherr.
The principal chapters on architecture, urban planning, and garden design as well as painting, sculpture and the applied arts are complemented by shorter sections on the manufacture of silk, coach building, the public parks movement as well as cemeteries and tombs. With all this the reader will gain an insight into the ‘Prussian’ view of the world as revealed in its arts – a view that can be seen most clearly in its unique transformations of the major international styles, from the Baroque and the Rococo to the Neo-classical and the Romantic styles.
