“Ludwig II” (VIDEOS)

“In this documentary art historian, Mr. Dan Cruickshank, explores the rich aesthetic of Ludwig II – from the mock-medievalism of Neuschwanstein the iconic fairytale castle, which became the inspiration for Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle, to the rich Baroque splendor of Herrenchiemsee, Ludwig’s answer to Versailles. Dan argues that Ludwig’s castles are more than flamboyant kitsch and are, in fact, the key to unravelling the eternal enigma of Ludwig II.”
