Artist of the month
In 1901 Hugo von Hofmannsthal lived in the house in Himmelpfortgasse in Vienna which today houses the Slavik Gallery. Here he completed the libretto for an action ballet entitled “Der Triumph der Zeit” (The Triumph of Time) But the motif of the passing of time repeatedly appears in operatic work: in the Rosenkavalier (The Knight of the Rose), this topic causes melancholic resignation in the Marschallin, whereas in Ariadne auf Naxos (Ariadne on Naxos), the harlequin and his comedians subtly mock the passing of time. Jewellery art in changing times – Hofmannsthal for Renate Slavik.
