Gondola Days Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
At the end of the nineteenth century, a remarkable group of artists, writers and patrons gathered regularly at the Palazzo Barbaro in Venice. While Venice had long attracted wealthy tourists from across Europe and America, a particularly rich expatriate culture flourished at this time. In the 1880s, Daniel and Ariana Curtis of Boston purchased and restored the Palazzo Barbaro, where they lived in self-imposed exile. The Palazzo became the centre of a fascinating circle of American and English personalities living in Venice: the poet Robert Browning; Katharine de Kay Bronson of Newport, a writer greatly interested in local Venetian craft; Sir Austen Henry Layard, an archaelogist and an important collector of Renaissance paintings. The painter, John Singer Sargent, became especially close to Ralph Curtis, himself a talented artist. Isabella and John Gardner, also of Boston, rented the Palazzo Barbaro every other year, beginning in 1884. Henry James, a friend of Sargent and of Mrs. Gardner, frequently joined the group as did a myriad of other fascinating figures such as the painters Anders Zorn, Joseph Lindon Smith, and Claude Monet, the connoisseur Bernhard Berenson, writers Paul Bourget, Vernon Lee (Violet Paget), and a galaxy of socialites. As the Gardner Museum commemorates its centennial, this book accompanies an exhibition which explores the source of inspiration for Fenway Court, which in many ways is an attempt to duplicate the Palazzo Barbaro in Boston: a Venetian Gothic structure, full of paintings and objects, but also enlivened by working artists, poets, musicians and thinkers. These Venetian sojourns were amazingly productive; Sargent, Zorn, and Curtis produced a wide range of paintings and watercolours. While staying with Mrs. Gardner at the Barbaro, Henry James wrote the Aspen Papers and began The Wings of a Dove, set in a fictionalised version of the Barbaro. This book explores the distinctive interaction of this small group of individuals and their special connections with Venice. The exhibition will show paintings, watercolours, drawings and sketchbooks, as well as photographs (many taken by the visitors to the Palazzo), literary manuscripts, letters, albums and other documents. This fully illustrated, scholarly catalogue explores the themes of the exhibition.

Excerpt: Adolf Hitler (German pronunciation: ; 20 April 1889 - 30 April 1945) was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party (German: , abbreviated NSDAP), commonly known as the Nazi Party. He was Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and served as head of state as Führer und Reichskanzler from 1934 to 1945. Hitler is most remembered for his central leadership role in the rise of fascism in Europe, World War II and the Holocaust. A decorated veteran of World War I, Hitler joined the precursor of the Nazi Party (DAP) in 1919, and became leader of NSDAP in 1921. He attempted a coup d'état known as the Beer Hall Putsch, which occurred at the Bürgerbräukeller beer hall in Munich on 8-9 November 1923. Hitler was imprisoned for one year due to the failed coup, and wrote his memoir, Mein Kampf (in English "My Struggle"), while imprisoned. After his release on 20 December 1924, he gained support by promoting Pan-Germanism, antisemitism and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and propaganda. He was appointed chancellor on 30 January 1933, and transformed the Weimar Republic into the Third Reich, a single-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of Nazism. Hitler ultimately wanted to establish a New Order of absolute Nazi German hegemony in continental Europe. To achieve this, he pursued a foreign policy with the declared goal of seizing Lebensraum ("living space") for the Aryan people; directing the resources of the state towards this goal. This included the rearmament of Germany, which culminated in 1939 when the Wehrmacht invaded Poland. In response, the United Kingdom and France declared war against Germany, leading to the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Within three years, German forces and their European allies had occupied most of Europe, and most of North Africa, and the Japanese forces had occupied parts of East and Southeast Asia and the P...
