Andreas Schlueter

Andreas Schlueter was born in 1660 in Danzig (now Gdansk), Poland. He became a famous sculptor, working in Poland before 1694 for Jan III Sobieski. He worked also as architect and built many state buildings. His fame brought him to work in Saint Petersburg, where he died of an illness. The castle he designed in Berlin was partially destroyed by bombing in World War II and its remains were in demolished by the subsequent Communist regime. His sculpted decoration for Arsenal in Berlin is masterpiece of baroque expression and pathos.
