The anteroom to the ancestral portrait gallery
The anteroom to the ancestral portrait gallery is bright, welcoming and adorned with elegant stucco. Baroque and Rococo décor merge together in impossibly tight spaces. The arched openings to the staircase depict trophies of war and figures of captive Turks – a reference to Ludwig Wilhelm's victories in the Turkish Wars which is repeated often in the palace. The playful Rococo stucco, also seen in the garden room, was part of the modernization commissioned by Ludwig Georg in 1747.
