The Friedrichsgracht, Berlin
Eduard Gaertner

The Friedrichsgracht was a canal that ran though the centre of Berlin. While it still survives in present day Berlin, much of the area has been rebuilt since the Second World War.

The striking composition, dominated by the geometrical precision of the zinc roof in the foreground, is typical of Gaertner's work.
