The writing cabinet was redecorated in the Rococo style in 1764. The fine stucco-work on the ceiling was designed by court architect François Cuvilliés the Elder for Elector Max III Joseph. The small painting shows the elector at the lathe, which was then a popular court pastime. The family picture with his sister Maria Antonia at an easel between the electoral couple has a similarly intimate character.
