Juno Room Goethe's House in Weimar.
[GERMANY.THUERINGEN 30439] Goethes Wohnhaus at the Frauenplan in Weimar was for 47 years the residence of the great poet, writer and statesman. The Late Barock house was built in 1709 and became the living quarters of Goethe in 1782.
Here we see the Juno Room which was named after the colossal bust of the Roman goddess Juno (seen on the left). It was the music room of the house and many famous guests were entertained here, like Novalis, Schlegel and Mendelssohn. Above the grand piano hangs a water colour by Johann Meyer, which is copy of a Roman fresco representing marriage customs. Photo Paul Smit.
