Figure group "Morning", H 43 cm

"Brühl"s Terrace" in Dresden soon came to be known as the "Balcony of Europe" once it was opened up to the public in the early 19th century. When structural extensions were made to the splendid architectural ensemble running along the river Elbe in Dresden, the sculptor Johannes Schilling was contracted to adorn the imposing staircase at the northern end with the "Four Times of Day". The first figure group at the top of the flight is the Morning. A female entity reminiscent of a goddess carries the morning star in her hair and strides out into the new day. She is accompanied by her children, "Awakening" and the fresh "Morning Dew". This allegorical work was to prove to be Schilling"s artistic breakthrough. The young artist duly came to the attention of Gottfried Semper. The renowned architect commissioned him to produce the "Panther Quadriga", which still crowns the portal of the Semper Opera House today.
