  • 09/15/12--03:34: Heinrich Kühn-p.3

  • Heinrich Kuehn-German photographer and scientist, doctor of medicine. Counted among the most important representatives of the international Pictorialist movement around 1900. Kühn was also an author of technical literature and temporary operator of a school for artistic photography. After relocating to Innsbruck from his hometown Dresden, Kühn devoted himself to photography completely around 1888. After 1895, close co-operation with Hans Watzek (1848 - 1903) and Hugo Henneberg (1863 - 1918) in the Austrian photographer's group "Trifolium" or "Kleeblatt". The combination gum bichromate printing, which Kühn developed around 1896, was considered an adequate process for the communication of the aesthetics of Pictorialism, which so closely followed a painterly style. As late as 1926, Kühn introduced the soft-focus lens "Imagon" to achieve an "artistic blurring" in the photographic image. After 1907, he also experimented with colour photography, particularly with the Autochrome process of the Lumière brothers.

    "Генрих Кюн был значимой фигурой пикториальной фотографии: одним из тех, кто в переломное для творческой среды время отстаивал фотографию как отдельную форму искусства. Его работы, в большинстве своем, посвящены съемке портретов и пейзажей. Причем, как и многие художники начала XX века, Генрих в своих снимках делал акцент не на детализации изображения, а скорее на чувственной и эмоциональной составляющей. Он внес существенный вклад в изучение практики цветной фотографии, был одним из тех, кто разрабатывал новые технологии в сфере визуального искусства. После себя Кюн оставил около 260 автохромов — цветных растровых фотографических пластин братьев Люмьер. "(c)

    "A year before Emma died in 1905, an English woman named Mary Hannah Warner entered the household as a governess. Although it is not clear whether she and Kühn had a romantic relationship after the death of his wife, there is a very real likelihood of that, given the number of nude photographs he took of her. In one black-and-white image from 1906 that was perhaps inspired by a well-known Edward Burne-Jones engraving, the young woman's pale sinuous body is sharply defined against a darkened ground, as she covers herself with her arms like a modern Venus Pudica. Whatever the nature of her relationship with Kühn, Miss Warner remained with the family until her death in 1933."(source)

  • In 1903 the 100,000th Steinway grand piano was given as a gift to the White House; it was decorated by the artists Thomas Wilmer Dewing and Maria Oakey Dewing under the supervision of the head of Steinway's Art Piano Department, Joseph Burr Tiffany.

    Thomas Dewing - "American Receiving the Nine Muses" on Steinway & Sons Piano,
    1903 at American Art Museum Washington DC




    Maryland State Seal on piano commissioned by Theodore Roosevelt in 1903 for the East Room of the White House. It was made by Steinway & Sons of NYC, and decorated with patriotic motifs and the seals of the first 13 states. The painting "America Receiving the Nine Muses" by Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938) is inside the lid.










    In the spring of 1904, the Detroit industrialist and art collector Charles Lang Freer made a five-day trip to New York, where he took in the annual exhibition of the Ten American Painters at the Durand-Ruel Gallery. He was particularly impressed by a decorated piano lid, the only submission by Thomas Dewing, and writing to fellow-collector John Gellatly a few days later, Freer declared, "I think the piano cover...is the finest thing Dewing has ever done, embracing the finest qualities of all his earlier things."

    The painting is not actually one of Dewing's best, but it certainly echoes his earlier "decorations," the word he used to distinguish his large scale figures in the landscape from the smaller studio pictures of figures in interiors. The obscurely depicted allegory of "Columbia Receiving the Nine Muses" depicted here certainly refers back to the lush Cornish landscapes that Dewing had painting through the 1890s, examples of which were owned by both Freer and Gellatly.

    Dewing had executed the painting as part of a larger commission from Steinway & Sons in 1902, when he undertook the task of gilding and decorating the case of a commemorative piano-- serial number 100,000-- that the piano manufacturing firm presented to the Theodore Roosevelt White House in January 1903. Dewing completed the case in time for its White House debut, but continued to work on the lid through the following year. After exhibiting the decoration with the Ten, Dewing sent it to Washington where it was hinged onto the piano.
