This work depicts the indoor riding arena of Denmark’s Royal Stables, located in Christiansborg, the former royal palace, on the island of Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen. Still in use, the arena began construction in 1738. The stable complex and the two stable wing buildings are the only buildings to survive from Christian VI’s baroque palace. Historically the stables functioned as a stud farm for the royal family with horses bred and trained for riding and hunting, and with draft horses used for the royal carriages.
