The panorama was invented at the end of the 18th century. In a panorama the spectator, from an elevated standpoint, has a 360-degree view of a realistic representation of a landscape, a town, or an historic event. To create the illusion of ‘being in the picture’, it is most important that the subject is represented in a realistic style and that its perspective aims at the spectator exclusively. A panorama needs its own building, in which the huge cylindrically shaped painting can be hung. In this panorama (Panorama-Rundgemälde Kreuzigung Christi) the visitor becomes a witness of the crucifixion of Christ.
