Heinrich Taddel – The beauty of the whole world | Grünes Gewölbe
Green Vault shows from 24 June 2023 the exhibition ” … the beauty of the whole world” – Collection of Heinrich Taddel and his Stone Cabinet. On the occasion of the 300th birthday of the Green Vault in June 2023, magnificent stones will be the focus of an exhibition that is the result of six years of interdisciplinary cooperation between restorers and art historians of the Green Vault and mineralogists of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. The starting point is a hitherto little-known artist and his key work: the goldsmith and privy chamberlain Heinrich Taddel (1714-1794) with his unique stone cabinet, originally consisting of 214 tablets of mainly Saxon, but also from all over the world, gemstones.
Exhibition dates: Saturday, 24 June – Monday, 09 October 2023
Daily 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday closed, Friday 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
