Chaplin on the steps of the Pergamon Altar at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, March 1931


Another picture here.

Chaplin was especially impressed by the painted bust of Nefertiti at the museum (In fact, he told Carlyle Robinson that he could easily fall love with it). He at once ordered a facsimile of it for his home by the artist who had created a copy for the museum in Munich.
