The Blick in Griechenlands Blüte (View of the Flower of Greece) is a painting produced around 1825 by German artist Karl Friedrich Schinkel

A landscape painting in which nature and cultivated human activity are in harmony. Shinkel depicted the socially unified effect of a major building project; against the backdrop of a beautiful urban Greek landscape where masculine Greek men erect an iconic temple with a double entryway. The original painting went missing and Wilhelm Ahlborn recreated it, which can be seen in museums. For Schinkel, the construction of a temple was an achievement and a symbol of a harmonious community as his vision of new Athens, post Turkish domination was characterized through his works

The work can be viewed at Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin
