Description
Sanssouci was the name of the summer palace and gardens of Frederick the Great, built outisde of Berlin. Its style was so particularly luxurious that the term "Frederican Rococco" was coined upon its completion, and it is counted among the German rivals of Versailles. Pollak created ten etchings related to Sanssouci (from the French "sans souci" meaning without concern, carefree): "Neus Palais", "Orangerie", "Der Bogenschutze (the Archer)", "Sans Souci", "Historische Windmuhle", "Teehaus", "Die Gallerie", "Interieur", "Meissen Porzellan", and (entryway). This portfolio was issued in a red linen bound folio; there appears to have been no accompanying text.
