        Psyche am Brunnen

      . Aquarell auf Papier, gefirnist, auf Karton aufgezogen, unten rechts signiert: "Eduard Bitterlich.", 16,7 x 12,6 cm. Der 1833 in Stupnicka (Galizien) geborene Eduard Bitterlich zählt sicherlich zu den hervorragendsten österreichischen Zeichnern der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Nach einer Ausbildung an der Wiener Akademie und zweijährigem Studienaufenthalt in Venedig trat er in das Atelier des bedeutenden Historienmalers Carl Rahl ein, in dessen arbeitsteilig organisiertem Werkstattverband er vor allem für die Reinzeichnung der Rahl'schen Kompositionen verantwortlich war. Die im Archiv der Wiener Akademie befindlichen biographischen Aufzeichnungen zu Eduard Bitterlich von der Hand seines Sohnes Rudolf geben einen Einblick in Bitterlichs vielseitige Tätigkeit. Dort ist auch das Thema eines Psyche-Zyklus erwähnt ("3 Bilder i. Öl übermaltes Aquarell"), die er im Rahmen der Ausstattung für das Palais Gutmann in Wien anfertigte ("Fein durchgeführte Aquarelle für die Bilder zu den Gutmann Interieurs"). Im Anschluss an den Psyche-Zyklus sind noch vier Plafondbilder für das Zimmer der Frau von Gutmann mit den "Frauentugenden" exemplifizierenden antiken Historien zu Cornelia, Penelope, Baucis und Antigone erwähnt. Vorliegendes Aquarell einer an den Brunnen gelehnten Psychefigur, die nach der traditionellen Ikonographie mit Schmetterlingsflügeln dargestellt ist, steht mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit in Zusammenhang mit diesem Ausstattungsprojekt für das Palais Gutmann in Wien. Besonders reizvoll erscheint die flüchtig lasierende Aquarelltechnik, die etwa den durchsichtigen Schleier der spärlichen Bekleidung Psyches gut zur Geltung bringt. Dieser bildet in seinem leuchtenden Orange auch einen wirkungsvollen farbigen Akzent in der sonst eher tonig grün-blauen Palette. In den griechischen Lettern seiner Signatur betont Bitterlich seine Verbundenheit mit altgriechischer Kultur und altgriechischem Mythos, der vor allem im Späthistorismus in vielschichtigen Anspielungen und inhaltlichen Konnotationen aufgegriffen wurde. Die häufig dargestellte antike Historie folgt den Metamorphosen des Lucius Apuleius; Amor und Psyche, die die körperliche Liebe und die menschliche Seele versinnbildlichen, finden trotz zahlreicher Intrigen der auf die schöne Psyche eifersüchtigen Venus schließlich zueinander. Hier ist wohl der Beginn der Fabel mit dem sich Psyche in einer Wolke nahenden Ungeheuer dargestellt, das diese auf Geheiß der eifersüchtigen Venus ehelichen sollte. Anstelle des Dämons nähert sich ihr jedoch Zephyr, der sie im Auftrag des in Liebe entflammten Amors in dessen Schloss bringt. Die Geschichte von Amor und Psyche wurde in der abendländischen Kunst in Malerei, Zeichnung und Skulptur immer wieder illustriert. Zu den berühmtesten Verbildlichungen zählen Raffaels Fresken in der Villa Farnesina in Rom, die von zahlreichen Künstlern studiert und paraphrasiert wurden. Auch Bitterlich reflektiert in seiner idealtypischen Psychefigur das raffaelische Vorbild der Hochrenaissance. In den von Bitterlich gezeichneten Kartons für das Palais Epstein in Wien, die sich als ein Höhepunkt der Kartonkunst des Historismus im Wiener Kupferstichkabinett befinden, kommt das Thema mit Amor und Psyche ebenfalls vor; dort ist mit der Hochzeit von Amor und Psyche das glückliche Ende der Historie illustriert.

        An Act for incorporating the Members of a Society, commonly called 'The Seaman's Hospital Society', and their Successors,. INCORPORATION OF THE SEAMAN'S HOSPITAL SOCIETY. EXCEPTIONAL COPY

      Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode Printers to the King's most Excellent Majesty 1833 - 12pp., sm. folio, with fine woodcut royal arms of William IV on front page; disbound, an exceptionally crisp, virtually spotless copy ideal for display or presentation. 3 Gulielmi IV. Cap. 9; granted royal assent, 6 May 1833. This is the Act of Parliament formally incorporating the Seaman's Hospital Society, establishing and naming its first governors and prescribing its powers and scope of operations. By way of context its military equivalent, the Royal Hospital at Chelsea, was founded in 1692. The world's first charitable society for the relief of distressed seamen was established in London in March 1821. Initially it aimed to cater for those in the Port of London ('who at that time were very numerous in the Metropolis') and, fittingly for the world's leading maritime nation, did not differentiate on nationality or any other grounds other than disability and hardship. The motivating principles seem to have been partly public gratitude in the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars, in which the Royal Navy in particular had played a fundamental role in achieving victory, and partly increased recognition of the helplessness of private seamen and the strength of their cause. The society was supported entirely by donations, subscriptions and legacies, and by the loan by government of a hospital ship (HMS Dreadnought) moored at Greenwich. In its first twelve years the society provided relief and support to upwards of twenty-three thousand sick and distressed seamen, 'many of whom might otherwise have perished'. With the case clearly made it was time for a more formal and robust body with increased remit and governance; accordingly the Seaman's Hospital Society was given royal assent on 6 May 1833. Its significant extra powers included the rights to possess property, receive bequests, purchase lands and canvass donations; most important of all it was granted 'perpetual succession'. The original HMS Dreadnought continued in use until 1870 when the Admiralty made available at nominal rent the infirmary at Greenwich where the 'Dreadnought' hospital continues to this day. AN ACT OF FUNDAMENTAL IMPORTANCE TO THE WELFARE AND WELL-BEING OF SEAMEN IN BRITAIN, AND A SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT IN BRITISH MARITIME HISTORY. Very scarce, especially in this condition.
