CASTLE BY THE RIVER - The Life and Death of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Painter and Master Builder

“CASTLE BY THE RIVER” by Christoph Werner
Christoph Werner’s new book “CASTLE BY THE RIVER” takes readers back to 19th Century Berlin.

The canvas always recoils when he tries to apply the brush. How can hope be made apparent if he doesn’t succeed in putting the white dove into the painting? Brentano’s smile was so friendly when he, Schinkel, had made a sketch in his notebook of Brentano’s impromptu story even while it was being told. And now, in oil, almost ready on the easel, he can’t finish the painting with his brush. In his feverish dreams, Schinkel struggles to complete his painting “Castle By The River”; on his sick bed, he relives his fulfilled life marked by an overwhelming sense of duty and the tragedy of the architect and artist who became a servant of his king.

While “CASTLE BY THE RIVER” by Christoph Werner is a novel, it offers readers an interesting and realistic insight into the past, 19th Century Architecture and German history. The author was born in the East German city of Halle on the Saale river and raised as the son of a Lutheran minister. He studied English and German at Martin Luther University at Halle and worked at various universities in East and West Germany before retiring to live in Weimar. He has written four novels and numerous short stories and essays.
