from the description of the Historical Museum Frankfurt on this panorama:

Johann Friedrich Morgenstern shows their city to people from Frankfurt from a bird's-eye view: "a triumph of painting" (B. Hundeshagen, 1809).

End of the 18th century, a new mass medium was created, the panorama or round paintings. From the centre of a rotunda, the viewer could view an all-round painting with a depiction of the city or landscape or an illustration of a historical event. He should get the feeling that he is really there himself. In Frankfurt, too, it was possible at the beginning of the 19th century to admire such circular images with views of various European cities. In the painter Johann Friedrich Morgenstern, they awakened the desire to create a panorama of Frankfurt himself.

He chose the tower of St. Catherine Church as his central point of view. For the sketches to be made, Morgenstern took six months, another six months for their preparation and more than a year for execution on a paper-covered canvas of seven meters in height and 46 meters in length. The diameter of the panorama was just under 15 meters. It could be visited from 11 July 1811 for a Guilder in a temporary building in the Kaiserhof on the Große Bockenheimer Gasse. For 48 Kreutzer you could get a brochure written by art historian Bernhard Hundeshagen with a description of the city, which also contained a coloured orientation plan with the numbered sights.
