world pictures Germany: Three by Balthasar Neumann

You're not too impressed by Schloss Bruchsal? Take it easy. We're not here for the exterior, though the pediment hints at what lies within. Nikolaus Pevsner writes, "The palace consists of a rectangular centre block or corps de logis and lower projecting wings, i.e. the Palladian scheme which had spread from Northern Italy to England and also to France, where it has been modified and then, in its revised shape with the space between the wings treated as a formal cour d'honneur, taken over by Germany." It's that grand interior entrance we're looking for. (See Pevsner's An Outline of European Architecture, p. 148.)
