Thoroughly documenting the oeuvre of a Munich architect and teacher who played a prominent role in the development of 19th-century Bavarian architecture, this scholarly catalogue presents numerous drawings and photographs of major buildings designed by Gartner, many of them commissioned by Ludwig I. Augmented by an extensive selection of the architect's letters illuminating the cultural and political context of his life, eleven substantial essays examine all aspects of Gartner's career, discussing such topics as his studies and work in Italy and Greece, his connections to the Nazarenes, his designs for monuments and state buildings on the Ludwigstrasse, and the international influence of his colorful ornamental motifs.
