From the garden you can enter the garden room of the Freies Deutsches Hochstift (this was not the Goethe family’s garden room). Here you can see the paintings Ideal Landscape with Antique Ruins I by Christian Georg Schütz I., The Burning of Troy by Johann Georg Trautmann, and images of the twelve months by Johann Conrad Seekatz as well as other small works. All these oil paintings were made on commission for Count François de Théas de Thoranc around 1759/1763. In Poetry and Truth Goethe writes about the “Lieutenant General” being quartered in the Goethe family home during the Seven Years’ War. Thoranc had the paintings made for his brother’s palace in Grasse in Southern France. They were later installed in a different palace. The Freie Deutsche Hochstift was able to purchase them in 1907.
