The other day I discovered this interesting old building called "Alte Universitäts Fechthalle", built in 1903. It amused me to think that at some point the university in Göttingen, today with over 20.000 students, had so few of them that this quaint, little building fulfilled the needs for their sports activities. Today it houses a ballet school.

It is a beautiful building and I can see why you wanted to paint it.

You have made a great job of it too!
