What is Vienna known for?

personal version

of a former Jugendstil sanatorium near Vienna. The guests were invited to abandon the immobilized position of ''spectator'' in a conventional drama, replace it with the mobile activity of ''traveller'', thus partaking in a "theatrical journey". By choosing the events, the path, and the person to follow after each event, each participant constructed her or his personal version of the "Polydrama". Life Dmitri Alexeev was a student at the Moscow Conservatory. He also studied under Dmitri Bashkirov. In the 1970s he made his debut in London, Vienna, Chicago and New York. He won the Leeds Piano Competition (Leeds International Pianoforte Competition) in 1975. http: events dmitri-alexeev He now teaches at the Royal College of Music in London. http: default.aspx?pg 6413 * The Bell of King Seongdeok is the largest extant bell in Korea. The full Korean name means "Sacred Bell of King Seongdeok the Great." It was also known as the Bell of Bongdeoksa Temple, where it was first housed. The bell weighs about 25 tons and was originally cast in 771 CE. It is now stored in the National Museum of Gyeongju. *Pummerin in Vienna's Stephansdom is the most famous bell in Austria and the fifth largest in the world. *The St. Petersglocke, in the local dialect (Kölsch language) of Cologne also called "Dicke Pitter" (fat Peter), is a bell in Germany's Cologne Cathedral. It weighs 24 tons and was cast in 1922. It is the largest functioning free-swinging bell in the world that swings around the top. (The Gotenba Bell and the World Peace Bell swing around the center of gravity, which is more like turning than swinging. So, depending on the point of view, the St. Petersglocke may be up to now the largest free-swinging bell in the world.) It was natural, given the tendency to effect which marked Ostade from the first, that he should have been fired by emulation to rival the masterpieces of Rembrandt. His early pictures are not so rare but that we can trace how he glided from one period to the other. Before the dispersal of the Gsell collection at Vienna in 1872, it was easy to study the steel-grey harmonies, the exaggerated caricature of his early works between 1632 and 1638. There is a picture in the Vienna Gallery of a ''Countryman Having his Tooth Drawn'', unsigned, and painted about 1632; a "Bagpiper" of 1635 in the Liechtenstein Gallery at Vienna; cottage scenes of 1635 and 1636 in the museums of Karlsruhe, Darmstadt, and Dresden; and the ''Card Players'' of 1637 in the Liechtenstein palace at Vienna, making up for the loss of the Gsell collection. The same style marks most of those pieces. 1907 Vienna, Austria Although initially successful in the Austrian-Russian campaign against the Ottomans (Austro-Turkish War, 1737-1739), he was eventually forced to retreat across the Save (Sava) River. His numerous enemies in Vienna brought about his recall, trial and imprisonment at Graz as punishment for the unsuccessful war. Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna

, but the great break came in 1992, when the she got the title role in the world premiere of ''Elisabeth (Elisabeth (musical))'' in Vienna, Austria. Though the Viennese papers wrote a lot of scathing criticism, such as ''"Munter geht die Sisi unter" ("Sisi perishes")'' and they denied Douwes singing and acting talent of any kind, Douwes became (along with Uwe Kröger) an acclaimed musical star and reprised the title role numerous times. ''Elisabeth'' is today

railway station Kraków main station and the city's Academy of Economics (Cracow University of Economics). It was also at around this time that Kraków's first large radial boulevards began to appear, with the city undergoing a large scale program aimed at transforming the ancient capital of Poland into a sophisticated regional capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Large representative government buildings and multi-story tenement houses first began to appear in Kraków during the period of Austro-Hungarian rule, and it is now clear to see that much of the city centre beyond the Old Town was greatly influenced by the urban-planning and architectural practices of architects and engineers trained in Vienna. Other major projects of the era included the development of the Jagiellonian University's premises in the city and the building of the Collegium Novum just west of the Old Town. Such development of the city continued up until the independence of Poland after the First World War. Early modernist styling in Kraków is represented by such masterpieces as the 'House under the Globe'. Secession style (Vienna Secession#Architecture) architecture, which had arrived in Kraków from Vienna, became popular towards the end of Austro-Hungarian rule.

history painting

as plays or dialectics of ideas, a fertile ground for important allegory, using themes from these subjects was considered the most serious form of painting. A hierarchy of genres, originally created in the 17th century, was valued, where history painting—classical, religious, mythological, literary, and allegorical subjects—was placed at the top, next genre painting (Genre works), then portraiture, still-life, and landscape (Landscape art). History painting was also

known as the "grande genre". Paintings of Hans Makart are often larger than life historical dramas, and he combined this with a historicism (historicism (art)) in decoration to dominate the style of 19th century Vienna culture. Paul Delaroche is a typifying example of French history painting. Franz von Suppé died in Vienna on May 21, 1895, and is buried in the Zentralfriedhof.

by Schalcken. His history paintings are less-well known. Samuel Dirksz van Hoogstraten was born and died in Dordrecht. He was first a pupil of his father Dirk van Hoogstraten, living at Dordrecht until about 1640. On the death of his father, he changed his residence to Amsterdam and entered the school of Rembrandt. A short time later, he started as a master and painter of portraits. He then set out on a round of travels which took him (1651) to Vienna, Rome and London, finally retiring to Dort. There he married in 1656, and held an appointment as provost of the mint. The '''Imago Publishing Company''' was a separate and much more substantial venture, set up after Sigmund Freud arrived in 1938 in London. The stocks of Freud's works left when he fled Vienna and the Nazis (Nazism) had been destroyed; Rodker with Anna Freud worked to publish a complete edition. This was done over a dozen years, being finished in 1952. Imago was wound up in 1961. During Napoleon's failed campaign in Russia, 1812, Schefer was appointed manager of the big estates of his newly-won friend, Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau (Hermann von Pückler-Muskau), doing well under hard circumstances until 1816. The prince, recognizing the literary abilities of his friend, encouraged his early poetical efforts. Having visited England together with Pückler for studying landscape gardens (and being deeply impressed by Eliza O'Neill on the stage), Schefer studied composition under Antonio Salieri in Vienna 1816-17, and travelled to Italy, Greece, Egypt, Palestine, and Turkey. Schefer returned in 1819 to Muskau, where he remained for all his life, married, fathering one son and four daughters, due to his literary success in easy - after the lost German revolution 1848 49 (Revolutions of 1848 in Germany) in poor - circumstances, following his literary pursuits until his death, 1862. See Bettina and Lars Clausen: ''Zu allem fähig'', 2 vols., Bangert & Metzler, Frankfurt on Main 1985. In 1929 he became a member of the revolutionary group, the Ustaše. He went from Rijeka to Italy where Ante Pavelić named him his adjutant and commander of all Ustaše in Italy. Artuković led a small uprising in Lika called the Velebit uprising, after which he returned to Italy. His Ustaše codename was ''Hadžija''. Artuković was in conflict with a small group of M. Babić (codenamed Giovanni) supporters, and at the end of 1933 he left Italy. After that he lived in Budapest then Vienna for a short time where he was arrested in 1934 and held in prison for a time. He was expelled from Vienna, after which he returned to Budapest. At the beginning of September 1934 he met Pavelić in Milano, and in the middle of September 1934 he went to London. He was arrested there in October 1934 after the assassination of Yugoslav King Alexander I (Alexander I of Yugoslavia) in Marseilles. After his arrest he was transferred to France, where he spent three months in prison in Paris. In January 1935 he was extradited to Yugoslavia and after 16 months spent in prison in Belgrade he was acquitted and released on 16 April 1936. He lived in Gospić for a while, but in May 1936 he left the country again and went to Austria and later to Germany. At the beginning of 1937 he was under Gestapo investigation in Berlin. Under threat of arrest he left Berlin and visited France, after which he moved to Budapest and then returned to Berlin. Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
