Synopsis: This book discusses a subject to which little attention has been paid to date: Schinkel's interest in Indian architecture and culture. At the royal court of Prussia, Lalla Rookh, based on Thomas Moore's romance, was celebrated in 1821 as an oriental festival. In 1822 the Indian-themed pageant Nurmahal was performed at the opera. For both productions Schinkel created enchantingly beautiful stage sets. His unrealised project for the summer palace Orianda on the Crimea, at the geographical interface of eastern and western culture, was Schinkel's convincing and timeless memorial to his dream of the unity of world cultures. The style of the exterior is classical, while that of the interior is Indian and Islamic. The work is characterized by the hall of caryatids that lies in front of the building and the museum of Caucasian antiquities, its counterpart in the interior of the palace.

About the Author: Mario Alexander Zadow, born in 1927, has spent the last 35 years doing biographical research about Schinkel. He is an honorary member of the German Karl-Friedrich-Schinkel-Gesellschaft and an "Honorary Historian" of the American society Friends of Schinkel.

Book Description Edition Axel Menges. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Schinkels Look Towards India, Mario Alexander Zadow, Text in German & English. Schinkels Look towards India discusses a subject to which little attention has been paid to date: Schinkels interest in Indian architecture and culture. This interest was first aroused by the English traveller to India William Hodges, who proposed the thesis that Greek and Indian architecture were of equal value. Later, the English landscape painters Thomas and William Daniell were to become even more important for Schinkel. Oriental Scenery, the book that described their travels, left its mark on Europes image of India for decades and inspired longing for that country, which was considered almost magical. The cultural elite of Prussia were also caught up in this fascination. At the royal court of Prussia, Lalla Rookh, based on Thomas Moores romance, was celebrated in 1821 as an oriental festival. In 1822 the Indian-themed pageant Nurmahalwas performed at the opera. For both productions Schinkel created enchantingly beautiful stage sets. His interest in exotic architecture was lifelong. The sketches he based on the work of the Daniells were preliminary studies for a huge round panorama that was to show the buildings of various periods and nations in their particular setting. His unrealised project for the summer palace Orianda on the Crimea, at the geographical interface of eastern and western culture, was Schinkels convincing and timeless memorial to his dream of the unity of world cultures. The style of the exterior is classical, while that of the interior is Indian and Islamic. The work is character-ized by the hall of caryatids that lies in front of the building, with a view of the Black Sea, and the museum of Caucasian antiquities, its counterpart in the interior of the palace. Schinkel found the idea for the museum in Oriental Scenery, in the drawings of the legendary 1000-Pillar Hall in Madurai, in southern India, which the Daniells had toured full of admiration and included in their book.

Book Description Edition Axel Menges Gmbh Sep 2013, 2013. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 256x215x12 mm. Neuware - Lalla Rookh nach der Romanze von Thomas Moore ein orientalisches Fest. An der Oper wurde 1822 das indische Festspiel Nurmahal aufgeführt. Für beide Darbietungen schuf Schinkel hinreißende Bühnenbilder. Das Interesse für exotische Baukunst begleitete ihn lebenslang. Seine Skizzen nach dem Werk der Daniells waren Vorstudien zu einem riesigen Rundpanorama, das die Bauwerke verschiedener Zeiten und Völker in ihrer Umgebung zeigen sollte. Mit seinem nicht realisierten Projekt für den Sommerpalast Orianda auf der Krim, am geographischen Schnittpunkt östlicher und westlicher Kultur, hat Schinkel seinem Traum von der Einheitlichkeit der Weltkulturen ein überzeugendes und zeitloses Denkmal gesetzt. Das Äußere klassizistisch, das Innere indisch-islamisch. Kennzeichnend dafür sind die dem Baukörper vorgelagerte Karyatidenhalle mit Blick auf das Schwarze Meer und als Pendant dazu im Palast-inneren das Museum kaukasischer Altertümer. Die Idee für das Mu-seum fand Schinkel in der Oriental Scenery, in den Zeichnungen der legendären 1000-Pfeiler-Halle im südindischen Madurai, die die Daniells voller Bewunderung besichtigt und in ihr Werk aufgenommen hatten. Mario Alexander Zadow, geboren 1927, widmet sich seit 35 Jahren der biographischen Schinkelforschung. Er ist Ehrenmitglied der Karl-Friedrich-Schinkel-Gesellschaft in Neuruppin und 'Honor-ary Historian' der amerikanischen Gesellschaft Friends of Schinkel. Zadows Bücher Karl Friedrich Schinkel - ein Sohn der Spätaufklä-rung. Die Grundlagen seiner Erziehung und Bildung (Edition Axel Menges, 2001) und Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Leben und Werk (Edi-tion Axel Menges, 2003) sind grundlegend für die Beschäftigung mit dem Werk des berühmtesten preußischen Baumeisters. Zadow erhielt 2000 den Schinkelpreis der Stadt Neuruppin und im Jahr 2010 den Ehrenpreis der Neuruppiner Schinkel-Gesellschaft für sein Lebenswerk.Schinkel's Look towards India discusses a subject to which little attention has been paid to date: Schinkel's interest in Indian architecture and culture.
