On the first floor there is a painting on the wall.
A huge thanks to @lara-makedonskaya-blog from Tumblr for finding this mysterious painting. I was looking these for months.
This painting was made by Christian Johan Rugendas, the younger (1775-1826) called “Gefecht zwichen christlicher infanterie und türkischer Reiterei” (Fight between Christian and Turkish cavalry). There is another one a floor up. Found here and here.

Near the first painting there is also another painting at the ground.
This painting was made by Giovanni Antionio Canal or Canaletto born in Venice (1697-1768). The painting is called San Giacomo di Rialto and was made around 1726. The artist is known from his paintings in Venice and in England.

2.06 – Can with RPM and a sweeper
In the wardrobe is an empty gun but also a can of RPM motor oil and a sweeper. The RPM motor oil is an existing branch but it doesn't look like this.
2.07 – A box and a pile of books
On the second floor there is a box with a pile of books. The blue one looks like a glass. It is a book by N. Hudson Moore, "Old Glass, European and American", made in 1935.
It is probably there because of the link with the Holy Grail and thus with the Knights Templar. Angel of Darkness is full of it.
