George Morland

George Morland was an English painter. His early work was influenced by Francis Wheatley but after the 1790s he came into his own style, his best compositions focus on rustic scenes: farms and hunting. George Morland was born in London on 26 June 1763, he was the son of Henry Robert Morland, grandson of George Henry Morland, said by Cunningham to have been lineally descended from Sir Samuel Morland, while other biographers go so far as to say that he had only to claim the baronetcy in order to get it. Morland began to draw at the age of three years, at the age of ten his name appears as an honorary exhibitor of sketches at the Royal Academy, he continued to exhibit at the Free Society in 1775 and 1776, at the Society of Artists in 1777, again at the Royal Academy in 1778, 1779 and 1780. His talents were cultivated by his father, accused of stimulating them unduly with a view to his own profit, shutting the child up in a garret to make drawings from pictures and casts for which he found a ready sale.

The boy, on the other hand, is said to have soon found a way to make money for himself by hiding some of his drawings, lowering them at nightfall out of his window to young accomplices, with whom he used to spend the proceeds in frolic and self-indulgence. It has been asserted that his father, discovering this trick, tried to conciliate him by indulgence, humouring his whims and encouraging his low tastes, he was set by his father to copy pictures of all kinds, but of the Dutch and Flemish masters. Among others he copied Reynolds's Garrick between Tragedy and Comedy, he was introduced to Sir Joshua Reynolds, obtained permission to copy his pictures, all accounts agree that before he was seventeen he had obtained considerable reputation not only with his friends and the dealers, but among artists of repute. A convincing proof of the skill in original composition which he had attained is the fine engraving by William Ward, after his picture of The Angler's Repast, published in November 1780 by John Raphael Smith.

It is said that before his apprenticeship to his father came to an end, in 1784, Romney offered to take him into his own house, with a salary of £300, on condition of his signing articles for three years. But Morland, we are told, had had enough of restraint, after a rupture with his father he set up on his own account in 1784 or 1785 at the house of a picture dealer, commenced that life which, in its combination of hard work and hard drinking, is without a parallel. Morland soon became the mere slave of the dealer with, his boon companions were "ostlers, horse jockeys, pawnbrokers and pugilists." In this company the handsome young artist swaggered, dressed in a green coat, with large yellow buttons, leather breeches, top boots. "He was in the extreme of foppish puppeyism", says Hassell. His youth and strong constitution enabled him to recover from his excesses, he not only employed the intervals in painting, but at this time, or shortly afterwards, taught himself to play the violin, he made an effort, a successful one, to free himself from his task-master, escaped to Margate, where he painted miniatures for a while.

In 1785 he paid a short visit to France, whither his fame had preceded him, where he had no lack of commissions. Returning to London, he lodged in a house at Kensal Green, on the road to Harrow, near William Ward, intercourse with whose family seems for a time to have had a steadying influence, it resulted in his marriage with Miss Anne Ward, the sister of his friend, in July 1786, the bond between the families was strengthened a month by the marriage of William Ward and Morland's sister Maria. The two newly married couples set up house together in High Street and Morland for a while appeared to have become a reformed character, he was now becoming known by such engravings from his pictures as the large'Children Nutting', several smaller and more sentimental subjects published in 1785, like the' Lass of Livingston.' To 1786, the year of his marriage, is said to belong the series of'Letitia or Seduction', in which with much of the narrative power of Hogarth, but with softer touches, the'Progress' of Letitia is told in six scenes admirable in design, painted with great skill and refinement.

About this period he was fond of visiting the Isle of Wight, where he painted his best coast scenes, studied life and character in a low public-house at Freshwater Gate, called the Cabin. In 1786 he painted an oil on canvas, it shows women and children clutching what little of the ship remains afloat while a crewman's eyes tell the eventual fate of his half-submerged body. It conveys the terror and hopelessness that must grip people when they know they're taking their last breath. After three months the double household was broken up by dissensions between the ladies, Morland took lodgings in Great Portland Street, afterwards moved to Camden Town, where he lived in a small house in Pleasing Passage, at the back of the tavern known as Mother Black Cap; the attractions of the neighbouring inns, of the Assembly Rooms at Kentish Town, now proved too strong for him, he returned to all his bad habits. A long illness of his wife, following her confinement and death of the

Neues vom Tage

Neues vom Tage is a comic opera in three parts by Paul Hindemith, with a German libretto by Marcellus Schiffer. The opera is a satire of modern life and marriage, involving parodies of both Puccini's music and Berlin cabaret; the opera became notorious for a scene with a naked soprano singing in the bath about the wonders of modern plumbing, though Hindemith replaced her with the tenor in the revised version. The mischievous nudity aroused the ire of Ernst "Putzi" Hanfstängel, Hitler’s musical advisor, was cited by the Nazis as evidence that the "degenerate art" of the "cultural bolshevist" Hindemith should be excluded from Germany. Neues vom Tage was first performed on 8 June 1929, at the Kroll Opera House, under the musical direction of Otto Klemperer. Hindemith revised the opera, changing the text and adding a little new music, for the Teatro San Carlo, Naples on 7 April 1954; the premiere of the work in the United States was at the Santa Fe Opera in 1961.
