CARL VON PILOTY (1826-1886), Munich painter at King Maximilian II's Alpine court.
King Maximilian II loved Piloty historical allegories and scenes of those moments in history, which portended future constellations of rulership in Europe, or were emblematic of the hidden drama in the lifes of the powerful and influential. His allegorical painting Monachia, a visual ode to the city of Munich,
will be restored to City Hall on September 20th 2004. It's size is monumental.
