Marble Bath (Marmorbad)


The Marble Bath, located next to the Orangerie in the Karlsaue Park is Germany's last intact, prominent bath structure with a representative character from the Late Baroque period. It was constructed under Landgrave Carl of Hesse-Cassel from 1722 to 1728. The distinguished Roman sculptor Pierre Etienne Monnot (1657–1733) created the magnificent interior architecture with marble sculptures and wall reliefs portraying the Metamorphosis of Ovid as well as medallions with portrait busts of Landgrave Carl of Hesse-Cassel and his spouse, Landgrave Marie Amalie of Kurland. The Cassel Marble Bath is one of the most eminent works of Roman profane sculpture of the early 18th century.
