John Tschirch, Palaces of Repose: Part 3 (The Royal Villas of Potsdam: Retreats without a Care)

September 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join the globe-trekking architectural historian, John Tschirch, in a visual feast as he lectures on a selection of 17th and 18th-century European palaces where images of power played supporting roles to pleasure. The Royal Villas of Potsdam: Retreats without a Care: Prussian kings and princes built a series of retreats in the idyllic greenery of Potsdam outside of Berlin. From the Rococo masterpiece of Frederick the Great’s Sanssouci, meaning “without a care,” to Neoclassical villas evoking the atmosphere of ancient Rome, Potsdam is a royal dream made real by the hand of great architects.
