Munich School

Munich School is the name given to a group of painters who worked in Munich or were trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Munich between 1850 and 1918. In the second half of the 19th century the Academy became one of the most important institutions in Europe for training artists and attracted students from across Europe and the United States. Munich was an important center of painting and visual art in the period between 1850 and 1914; the mid-century movement away from the Romanticism and emphasis on fresco painting of the earlier Munich school was led by Karl von Piloty, a professor at the Munich Academy from 1856 and became its director in 1874. Piloty's approach to history painting was influenced by the French academician Paul Delaroche, by the painterly colorism of Rubens and the Venetians. Besides Piloty, other influential teachers at the Academy were Wilhelm von Diez, Wilhelm von Kaulbach, Arthur von Ramberg. and Nikolaos Gyzis. Artists of the Munich School include Anton Braith, Alfred Kowalski, Hans Makart, Gabriel Max, Victor Müller, Fritz Osswald, Franz von Lenbach, Friedrich Kaulbach, Wilhelm Leibl, Wilhelm Trübner, the genre painters Franz Defregger, Eduard von Grützner and Hermann von Kaulbach. and Miroslav Kraljević.

The last generation of students of the Munich School included nearly all the major figures of the German avantgarde, such as Lovis Corinth, Ernst Oppler, Vassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Franz Marc. There were notable schools of Munich-trained painters active outside of Germany; the formative influence of teachers and examples of the Munich School shaped the academic naturalism in many European countries, e.g. the Greek academic art of the 19th century. Due to the historical affinity between Bavaria and Greece—Prince Otto I was from 1832 to 1862 the first King of Greece—many Greek artists were trained in Munich; the Munich School in Greek art is the most important artistic movement of Greek Art in the 19th century with strong influences from the Academy of Munich. Among the leading artists of this school were Konstantinos Volanakis, Georgios Roilos, Nikolaos Gyzis, Polychronis Lembesis, Nikolaos Vokos, Nikiphoros Lytras and Georgios Jakobides. Most of the artists of the Hungarian Nagybanya school of art, such as Gyula Aggházy, were educated in Munich.

Poland was represented by, among others, Józef Chełmoński, Józef Brandt, Władysław Czachórski, Julian Fałat, Aleksander Gierymski, Maksymilian Gierymski and Alfred Wierusz-Kowalski. The Swedish painters Johan Christoffer Boklund and Johan Fredrik Höckert studied in Munich. Frank Duveneck and William Merritt Chase were the most prominent exemplars of the Munich School in American art. Other American artists who studied in Munich include Harry Chase, John Henry Twachtman and Walter Shirlaw; the Munich school is characterized by dark chiaroscuro. Typical subjects are landscape, genre, still-life, history painting. Brooklyn Museum, Triumph of Realism: an exhibition of European and American realist paintings,1850–1910.

Workers' Party of Ireland

The Workers' Party is a Marxist–Leninist political party active in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. It arose as the original Sinn Féin organisation founded in 1905 by Arthur Griffith, but took its current form in 1970 following a division within the party, in which it was the larger faction; this majority group continued under the same leadership as Sinn Féin or Official Sinn Féin, while the breakaway group became known as Sinn Féin or Provisional Sinn Féin. The party name was changed to Sinn Féin – The Workers' Party in 1977 and to the Workers' Party in 1982. Throughout its history, the party has been associated with the Official Irish Republican Army. Notable organisations that derived from it include Democratic Left and the Irish Republican Socialist Party; the party has one representative at local government level: Ted Tynan on Cork City Council. In the early to mid-1970s, Official Sinn Féin was sometimes called Sinn Féin to distinguish it from the rival offshoot Provisional Sinn Féin, or Sinn Féin.

Gardiner Place had symbolic power as the headquarters of Sinn Féin for decades before the 1970 split. This sobriquet died out in the mid-1970s. At its Ardfheis in January 1977, the Officials renamed, their first seats in Dáil Éireann were won under this new name. A motion at the 1979 Ardfheis to remove the Sinn Féin prefix from the party name was narrowly defeated; the change came about three years later. In Northern Ireland, Sinn Féin was organised under the name Republican Clubs to avoid a ban on Sinn Féin candidates, the Officials continued to use this name after 1970; the party used the name The Workers' Party Republican Clubs. In 1982, both the northern and southern sections of the party became The Workers' Party; the Workers' Party is sometimes referred to as the "Sticks" or "Stickies" because in the 1970s it used adhesive stickers for the Easter Lily emblem in its 1916 commemorations, whereas Provisional Sinn Féin used a pin for theirs. The modern origins of the party date from the early 1960s.

After the failure of the IRA's 1956–1962 "Border Campaign", the republican movement, with a new military and political leadership, undertook a complete reappraisal of its raison d'être. Through the 1960s, some leading figures in the movement, such as Cathal Goulding, Seán Garland, Billy McMillen, Tomás Mac Giolla, moved to the left to Marxism, as a result of their own reading and thinking and contacts with the Irish and international left; this angered more traditional republicans, who wanted to stick to the national question and armed struggle. Involved in this debate was the Connolly Association; this group's analysis saw the primary obstacle to Irish unity as the continuing division between the Protestant and Catholic working classes. This it attributed to the "divide and rule" policies of capitalism, whose interests were served by the working classes remaining divided. Military activity was seen as counterproductive, because its effect was to further entrench sectarian divisions. If the working classes could be united in class struggle to overthrow their common rulers, a 32-county socialist republic would be the inevitable outcome.

However, this Marxist outlook became unpopular with many of the more traditionalist republicans, the party/army leadership was criticised for failing to defend northern Catholic enclaves from loyalist attacks. A growing minority within the rank-and-file wanted to maintain traditional militarist policies aimed at ending British rule in Northern Ireland. An contentious issue involved whether to or not to continue with the policy of abstentionism, that is, the refusal of elected representatives to take their seats in British or Irish legislatures. A majority of the leadership favoured abandoning this policy. A group consisting of Seán Mac Stiofáin, Dáithí Ó Conaill, Seamus Twomey, others, established themselves as a "Provisional Army Council" in 1969 in anticipation of a contentious 1970 Sinn Féin Ard Fheis. At the Ard Fheis, the leadership of Sinn Féin failed to attain the required two-thirds majority to change the party's position on abstentionism; the debate was charged with allegations of vote-rigging and expulsions.

When the Ard Fheis went on to pass a vote of confidence in the official Army Council, Ruairí Ó Brádaigh led the minority in a walk-out, went to a prearranged meeting in Parnell Square where they announced the establishment of a "caretaker" executive of Sinn Féin. The dissident council became known as the "Provisional Army Council" and its party and military wing as Sinn Féin and the Provisional IRA, while those remaining became known as Official Sinn Féin and the Official IRA. Official Sinn Féin, under the leadership of Tomás Mac Giolla, remained aligned to Goulding's Official IRA; the minority, those supportive of Seán Mac Stiofáin's "Provisional Army Council", endeavoured to achieve a united Ireland by force. As the Troubles escalated, this "Provisional Army Council" would come to command the loyalty of the IRA national organisation save for a few isolated instances. A key factor in the split was the desire of those who became the Provisionals to make military action the key obj
