Landscape, settlements and monuments in Georg II. Buquoy’s diary from the italian journey in 1839 and 1840
Binder, Filip
The paper is dedicated to Count Georg II. Buquoy and his Italian journey of 1839 and 1840, which the text traces on the basis of the Count's letters addressed to his mother Gabriele, transcribed to form a travel diary. The text attempts to penetrate the thought-world of the aristocrat, who was 25 years old at the time of the journey, and examines how Buquoy reflected on the landscape, architecture, art and towns or the seats of nobility rulers during the expedition. The study also asks whether the information contained in Georg's correspondence, or rather in the letters of the aristocrat correlate with the results of recent historical and art historical research presenting Buquoy as an aristocrat whose romantic disposition was reflected in his activities, first of all in his artistic activities, documented by surviving sketchbooks, and also in the reconstruction of the castle in Rožmberk and the creation of the family museum there and alteration of the landscape parks founded by his ancestors. By analyzing the diary and the excerpts contained therein, it was possible to highlight the sentimental elements in the text of the count, who wrote his mother about the deep feelings and emotions that nature and visits to towns and monuments and seeing art works evoked in him. This also gives his lines an added literary value, since the Count was not trying to give his mother a mere description of what he had seen and visited, but to inform her of the movements of his mind and of the atmosphere of the various places he visited during his journey. The diary also confirms Buquoy's strong and positive relationship with art, architecture and nature, but points out its limits.
