This is a view of Dresden, capital of Saxony, taken from a vantage point close to the formal gardens of the Japanese Palace. The baroque building, which can be seen at left, was constructed by Augustus the Strong to store the imperial collection of Japanese porcelain.1 Beyond the palace is the Frauenkirche at centre, and over the bridge the Hofkirche, once church of the royal court of Saxony and now Dresden Cathedral.
