This temporary separation became permanent as a consequence of World War II. Biography Marseus van Schrieck spent the years 1648-1657 in Rome and Florence with the painters Matthias Withoos and Willem van Aelst, after which he settled in Amsterdam. He is best known for his paintings of forest flora (flora (plants)) and fauna (fauna (animals)). In Arnold Houbraken's biography of him, he mentions that he joined the Bentvueghels in Rome and was called the ''snuffelaer'', or "sniffer", because he was always sniffing strange lizards and snakes. He quotes his wife, who apparently survived him by two husbands and was still alive when he wrote the book. He wrote that she said that Otto kept snakes and lizards in a shed at the back of his house, and also on a piece of land outside the city that was walled in for this purpose. While Futurism staunchly rejected the past, other modern movements identified a nostalgia for the now faded Classical grandeur of Italy as a major influence in their art. Giorgio de Chirico first developed the style that he later called Metaphysical Painting while in Milan. It was in the more sedate surroundings of Florence, however, that he subsequently developed his emphasis on strange, eerie spaces, based upon the Italian piazza. Many of de Chirico's works from his Florence period evoke a sense of dislocation between past and present, between the individual subject and the space he or she inhabits. These works soon drew the attention of other artists such as Carlo Carrà and Giorgio Morandi. He conquered Lucca in 1314 with the help of his protege Castruccio Castracani. On 29 August 1315 he delivered the Guelfs of Florence and their associates from Naples their worst defeat since 1260 in the battle of Montecatini in the Val di Nievole. De Koninck was born and died in Amsterdam. Little is known of his history except that he was said to be a pupil of Rembrandt, whose influence is to be seen in much of his work. He painted chiefly broad, sunny landscapes, full of space, light and atmosphere; they are seen from a high perspective, allowing a prominent view of the sky. Portraits by him, somewhat in the manner of Rembrandt, also exist (e.g. see Joost van den Vondel); there are examples of these in the galleries at Copenhagen and Oslo. Of his landscapes, the principal are ''View at the mouth of a river'' at the Hague, with a slightly larger replica in the National Gallery, London; ''Woodland border and countryside'' (with figures by Adriaen van de Velde) at Amsterdam; and landscapes in Brussels, Florence (the Uffizi), Berlin and Cologne. Koninck, a prosperous businessman, appears to have painted few pictures during the last decade of his life. ** Demetrios (Demetrius Chalcondyles) (Athens, 1423 - Milan, 1511), scholar. *** Theophilos (Theophilos Chalkokondyles) (Florence, 1486–1510). Demetrios' son. He taught Greek Literature at the University of Pavia (see Pavia) when he was very young and he translated some works of Cicero. He was murdered by some of his rivals. ** Laonikos (Laonikos Chalkokondyles) (Athens, before 1430 - possibly Italy, 1490), historian. Return to Denmark and an artistic career Wiedewelt left Rome on 1 July 1758, when his financial support was running out, and after he had been ordered home to Denmark by the Academy. He traveled back in the company of friend, neoclassical painter Johan Edvard Mandelberg. They traveled over Caprarola, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Carrara, Lucca, Bologna, Padua, Venice, and Trieste where they studied the local art collections and churches, and on through the Tyrol (county of Tyrol) and Germany. They arrived back to Copenhagen on 6 October 1758. Italy *Calcio Fiorentino — a modern revival of Renaissance football from 16th century Florence. For supplementary information see Football in Italy Outside Europe His work in Vienna includes about twenty tombs of the Habsburg imperial family in the Imperial Crypt, especially his masterpiece, the elaborate double sarcophagus in Rococo style of Empress Maria Theresa (Maria Theresa of Austria) and her husband Emperor Franz I Stephan (Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor) on which Moll worked from 1751 to 1772. The life-size imperial pair lie on the tin lid, awakened from their sleep of death by the Trumps of Doom. The two look at each other while a putto behind them holds a garland of stars above them. The reliefs on the sides of the sarcophagus depict important scenes of their lives : the ceremonial entrance in Florence as archduke of Tuscany, his coronation in Frankfurt am Main, his coronation in Prague as King of Bohemia, and the coronation ceremony in Bratislava of Maria Theresia. Of the four corners of the sarcophagus, grieving statues show the crowns and blasons of their most important titles : Holy Roman Empire, Hungary, Bohemia and Jerusalem. thumb left 225px Sarcophagus of emperor Karl VI (detail with the Imperial Crown of the Holy Roman Empire (Image:KarlVI.02.jpg)) Return to Paris He traveled back to his home via Naples, Florence and Bologna, and arrived back in Valenciennes in the beginning of March 1749. The works he had sent home had received such positive attention that his hometown commissioned a full standing portrait of King Louis XV (Louis XV of France) from him. The marble statue was erected in 1752, and destroyed in 1792. A plaster bust of Louis XV was also made that same year. On July 1, 1758 he traveled back to Denmark in the company of Wiedelwelt. They traveled over Caprarola, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Carrara, Lucca, Bologna, Padua, Venice, and Trieste where they studied the local art collections and churches, and on through the Tyrol (county of Tyrol) and Germany. They arrived back to Copenhagen on October 6, 1758. right thumb ''Aurora Leigh's Dismissal of Romney ("The Tryst")'' by Arthur Hughes (artist) Arthur Hughes (Image:Arthur Hughes 002.jpg) '''''Aurora Leigh''''' (1856 (1856 in literature)) is an eponymous epic novel poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The poem is written in blank verse and encompasses nine books (the woman's number, the number of the prophetic books of the Sibyl). It is a first person narration, from the point of view of Aurora; its other heroine, Marian Erle, is an abused self-taught child of itinerant parents. The poem is set in Florence, Malvern (Malvern, Worcestershire), London, and Paris. She uses her knowledge of Hebrew and Greek, while also playing off modern novels, such as ''Corinne ou l'Italie'' by Anne Louise Germaine de Staël and the novels by George Sand. Through Book 5, Aurora narrates her past, from her childhood to the age of about 27; in Books 6-9, the narrative has caught up with her, and she reports events in diary form. Elizabeth Barrett Browning styled the poem "a novel in verse", and referred to it as "the most mature of my works, and the one into which my highest convictions upon Life and Art have entered." Biography Born in Civitanova Marche, province of Macerata, he became tutor to the wealthy family of Lodovico Gaddi in Florence, and then secretary to Lodovico's brother Giovanni (Giovanni Gaddi (priest)). At Gaddi's death, he entered the service of the Farnese family, and became confidential secretary to Pier Luigi Farnese (Pier Luigi Farnese, Duke of Parma), duke of Parma, and to his sons, Duke Ottavio (Ottavio Farnese) and cardinals Ranuccio (Ranuccio Farnese (Cardinal)) and Alexander (Alessandro Farnese (cardinal)). birth_date Commons:Category:Florence Wikipedia:Florence Dmoz:Regional Europe Italy Regions Tuscany Localities Florence
