Kunsthistorisches Museum

The Kunsthistorisches Museum is an art museum in Vienna, Austria. Housed in its festive palatial building on Ringstraße, it is crowned with an octagonal dome; the term Kunsthistorisches Museum applies to the main building. It is one of the most important museums worldwide, it was opened around 1891 at the same time as the Natural History Museum, Vienna, by Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria-Hungary. The two museums face each other across Maria-Theresien-Platz. Both buildings were built between 1871 and 1891 according to plans drawn up by Gottfried Semper and Baron Karl von Hasenauer; the two Ringstraße museums were commissioned by the emperor in order to find a suitable shelter for the Habsburgs' formidable art collection and to make it accessible to the general public. The buildings are rectangular in shape, topped with a dome, 60 meters high; the façade was built of sandstone. The inside of the museums is lavishly decorated with marble, stucco ornamentations, gold-leaf and paintings; the staircase of the Kunsthistorisches Museum is equipped with paintings by Gustav Klimt, Ernst Klimt, Franz Matsch, Hans Makart and Mihály Munkácsy.

The museum's primary collections are those of the Habsburgs from the portrait and armour collections of Ferdinand of Tirol, the collections of Emperor Rudolph II, the collection of paintings of Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, of which his Italian paintings were first documented in the Theatrum Pictorium. Notable works in the picture gallery include: Jan van Eyck: Portrait of Cardinal Niccolò Albergati Antonello da Messina: San Cassiano Altarpiece Raphael: Madonna of the Meadow St Margaret and the Dragon Albrecht Dürer: Avarice Adoration of the Trinity Titian: The Bravo Portrait of Isabella d'Este Lorenzo Lotto: Madonna and Child with Saint Catherine and Saint James Tintoretto: Susanna and the Elders Pieter Brueghel the Elder: The Fight Between Carnival and Lent Children's Games The Tower of Babel The Procession to Calvary The Gloomy Day The Return of the Herd The Hunters in the Snow The Peasant and the Nest Robber, 1568 The Peasant Wedding The Peasant Dance Giuseppe Arcimboldo: The Four Seasons Summer Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio: The Crowning with Thorns Madonna of the Rosary David with the Head of Goliath Peter Paul Rubens: Miracles of St. Francis Xavier Angelica and the Hermit Ildefonso Altarpiece Self-Portrait The Fur Rembrandt: Self Portrait Johannes Vermeer: The Art of Painting Diego Velázquez: Several portraits of the Spanish royal family, a branch of the Habsburg, sent to Vienna.

Morse (community), Wisconsin

Morse is an unincorporated community located in the town of Gordon, Ashland County, United States. Morse is located along the Bad River 7.5 miles south-southeast of Mellen. In 1881 the newly formed Bad River Lumbering and Improvement Company began building a milltown where the Wisconsin Central Railroad line touched the Bad River; the town would be named Morse, but it was called Jacob's Station, named after William H. Jacobs, the leader of the Bad River Company. At the same time they began improving a stretch of the Bad River for driving logs from their timber lands upstream to the mill. By next spring the company had completed the sawmill, a shingle and lath mill, a boarding house, a store, a blacksmith shop, lumber sheds; the mill began sawing in June 1882. That winter the company ran three logging camps out in their forests. In 1884 the mill shipped out as many as five railcars of lumber a day; the town had added a hotel named the Bad River House, in 1887 a schoolhouse. In 1887 the company town and its holdings were purchased by the Penokee Lumber Company, an enterprise of some New York investors and Augustus W. Morse.

Morse, from Saginaw, was the local manager. Under his direction machinery was upgraded, the plant was reorganized, he added electricity and a planing mill. To reduce the hazard of fire, scraps of wood were cleared from the mill's yard daily and large barrels of water stood watch; the mill kept about 70 Clydesdales in its stable. It was held up by the Northwestern Lumberman journal as a model mill; the town's name changed to Morse in 1889. Most of the lumber sawed in this period went west by rail to Omaha or east to Tonawanda, New York via the Wisconsin Central Railroad to Ashland and via ships on the Great Lakes. 275 men worked for the company and it provided twenty employee houses. All buildings, including the homes, were painted "Morse red."In 1890 Penokee contracted to ship 3,000,000 feet of lumber to England. In the dry year of 1891 when the rivers were too low to drive logs, the mill ran out of logs and had to shut down for a while in the fall. In 1892, when millworkers went on strike along the Wisconsin River to reduce their work day to ten hours, the workers at Morse didn't strike, but the Penokee Lumber Company adopted the ten-hour day anyway.

600 people lived in Morse in 1895. Penokee Lumber shut down due to its timber running out a result of the Panic of 1893. In 1900 F. B. Chase from Oshkosh resumed logging and milling operations, but in 1903 a fire destroyed the sawmill. Many people moved away. In 1917 the Kneeland-McClurg Lumber Company of Phillips began to use Morse as staging point for shipping logs to its sawmill in Phillips, it rebuilt a sawmill in Morse and built homes and a boarding house for the millworkers there. Population grew. After Kneeland-McClurg left in the early 1930s, manufacturing was intermittent. In the early 1940s the Templetons used the old mill's kilns to manufacture cedar shingles. In 1946, Cohen and Carlson started making ladders. Today only a handful of buildings remain. Randall Rohe's book, among the references above, contains a whole chapter on Morse, with old photos and maps

From the Inside (Lynn Anderson album)

From the Inside is the name of a studio album by country music singer Lynn Anderson, released in 1978. Although well-reviewed in Stereo Review and other publications, the album proved to be the least successful of her career at Columbia Records and her only album for the label not to make the Billboard Country Albums chart; the two single releases from it performed below standard for Anderson, "Rising Above It All" and "Last Love of My Life", each of them peaking in the back ten slots of the Hot Country Singles Top 50 One of the highlights from this album was a cover version of Ava Barber's Top 15 hit from that year, "Bucket to the South". "When You Marry For Money" was the last song written by Anderson's mother Liz Anderson that Anderson recorded during her years on major record labels, 1966-1989. "Rising Above It All" "Touch and Go" "Bucket to the South" "Sometimes When We Touch" "From the Inside" "I Know You're the Rain" "Fairytale" "When You Marry for Money" "Love Me Back" "Last Love of My Life"
