If there is one thing that Nymphenberg has, it is art.  The royal family loved to surround themselves with art – great art.

The art has a great deal of meaning.  Most of it designed to lift up the notion that the royal family had a divine right to rule.

I love the wigs and the hair.  They had afros before they were popular.

The rich colors and the cherubs are always so pleasant.

I know that our family pictures always turn out like the one above – NOT!  We can’t even get our kids to stay still for 5 seconds.  Imagine how long the people had to sit still for this painting.

BTW, did I mention the art was designed to show that the royal family had a special blessing from the gods to rule?  Gee, I wonder where I got that idea?  Have you seen any hints of it?  Yet, the amazing thing is that here we are in the 21st century and guess who’s not ruling any more?  So much for that idea.  No worries though, we have plenty of politicians who have picked up the mantle of that claim.  They will end up just like every other ruler who claimed some kind of divine blessing for their rule.
