Description
Josef Golab - Die Wartburg in Eisenach/Thüringen
Huile sur toile sur panneau - Non signé(e) - 1991

Beautiful painting of the “Wartburg” castle in Eisenach / Thuringia. The artist created the painting according to a Biedermeier template.

Like no other castle in Germany, the “Wartburg” is closely connected to Germany’s history. Elisabeth of Thuringia, who was later canonized, lived here from 1211 to 1227. The reformer Martin Luther was hiding out here under the name “Junker Jörg“ in 1521/22, during that time, he translated the New Testament (“September Testament”) to German, which only took him eleven weeks to complete. Johann Wolfgang Goethe stayed here several times, his first stay took place in 1777. On October 1817, the Jenaer Urburschenschaft made an invitation on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the day Martin Luther postered his theses to the Wittenberg castle church (October 31, 1517), and also for the commemoration of the Battle of the Nations at Leipzig (October 16 to 19, 1813), this was the first Wartburg festival held at the castle. The second Wartburg festival was held in the revolutionary year of 1848. So it’s not at all that surprising that the castle was regarded as a national monument as early as the 19th century.
