Probably because "Düsseldorf school of painting" (see Wikipedia article for more information) was very influential in the 19th century. Many Germans and foreigners studied at the Düsseldorf Academy.

The reason seems much simpler: the statues just represent other German cities (including Austria) with an Academy of Fine Arts. Frankfurt and Cologne don't have an Academy of Fine Arts. The omission of Nürnberg is mysterious though, given that it is the oldest Academy of Fine Arts in Germany.

Seems that is saying the same thing, differently, but not simpler, no?

No. I don’t think the influence of the Düsseldorf school of painting in the 19th century had anything to do with the choice for Düsseldorf. Düsseldorf is there just because it has an academy as well.

The theory that Düsseldorf and other cities were included just because they had academies is problematic because as mentioned Nürnberg had one and it was omitted and when I browsed Wikipedia "Liste von Hochschulen für Bildende Kunst" for Germany I found that for example Kassel, Leipzig and Stutgart and academies established already in the 18th century. I think that the cities were probably chosen because they had academies which were considered the most influental at the time and probably they had to limit to a certain number (4) so some cities/academies had to be omitted.

These cities were chosen as the leading cities of art in Germany back then. And Dresden (as Dresdensia) is of course also mentioned at the tympanum right beneath the statues.

(next to the central Saxonia)

The Nuremberg art academy might have been the oldest in Germany but Nuremberg was clearly surpassed by Munich in the 19th century and was more like a beloved symbol of german renaissance (Dürer) but not known for modern art at that time.

And to be precisely, the statues are not part of the actual Kunstakademie, but of the so called Exhibition building or hall (Kunsthalle im Lipsius-Bau). This building was managed by the so called Saxon art club (Sächsischer Kunstverein) up until 1946 and used for the exhibition of modern art (like today),

Ah, the Kunstakademie. The most prominent and stylistically pure Beaux-Arts building in Germany. If you didn't know better, you'd think the building stood in Paris. The architect Constantin Lipsius indeed studied architecture in Paris.

@TheCaspian: Regrettable situation, but there's no point in spamming all the threads on this forum with this message.

I wouldn't label the semi-emergency call for all of us who appreciate and strive to maintain valuable historic architecture a spamming exercise. On the contrary, i'm glad to have been given this information, and good it's distributed broadly, so we can all join the effort to express our shared interests...and hopefully make an impact.

I sent a message to them in Austria because of The Caspian's semi emergency call. God bless someone who cares enough to make the effort. At least here in the U.S. we would have lost a lot more historical buildings but for people like TheCaspian

Let us change the other street side. The Theater , Opera complex gets major renovation and extensions. Here we are: On the right the "Herzogin Garten" Project and in the back the famous Opera. Everything on the left the Opera complex from DDR times. Here we have offices, design studios, training facilities, fitness studios, workshops for the stage and costumes, storage facilities and so on. They are short of space:





The "Marstall" (For the kings horses) used to be here and some old buildings here are still from that time. This is one of the inner courts:


The streetfront is from the 1980`s;


storage facilities for the Theatre business;


Arts and craft studios;


The light comes from top;


central heating unit;


This was state of the art back when;

Thank you Elli Kny!

This was special in the 70`s and 80`s! The DDR had construction material shortages back then! They still managed this:





We turn 180*:




Fire door was added later;


The inside. The stage building goes on in here:


From the outside;


Renovation has started. Another floor will go on top;


Them buildings need a hand!

DAF forum user Elli Kny. Thank you for that!

I believe that's for this project, which was featured back in the very first days of the Berlin neotraditional thread.









It's around the corner from this rather impressive new block of streetwall infill:
