Parochialstrasse in Berlin

Parochialstrasse in Berlin is the title of a series of similar paintings by German artist Eduard Gaertner. Done in oil on canvas, the compositions depict the rapidly-industrializing urban landscape of 1830s Berlin, then the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia.[1] The work shows people going about their day, street dogs, and the central street culminates in the Nikolaikirche, Berlin's oldest church. Three compositions were produced; one is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one was destroyed in World War II, and one is in the collection of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin.[1]
