[GERMANY.THUERINGEN 30443] 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 vaulted 'Büstenzimmer' (bust-room) which Goethe ordered to be constructed in 1793 following a Roman example. In the foreground stands a plaster cast of the Ilioneus Torso (after a Roman copy of a Greek original), which Goethe received as a gift on his 80th birthday from King Ludwig I von Bayern. On the left we see a plaster copy of the bust of Schiller by Johann Heinrich Dannecker. On the right is a marble bust of the philosopher and theologian Johann Gottfried von Herder, sculpted by Alexander Trippel. Photo Paul Smit.
