(8 of 12) Reception of the Huguenots by the Great Elector
Chromolithograph by Carl Röhling (1849-1922) - dimensions: 13.9 x 19.6 cm.
In an almost childlike manner, Carl Röhling depicts the procession of Huguenots arriving from the left in front of the entrance to the palace in Potsdam (?) on the right. A Huguenot minister wearing a gown and carrying a Bible is pointing to the refugees and asking the Elector for aid. In the background a building and a church can be seen.
