Abstract :
The city of Frankfurt celebrated the 100th anniversary of Goethe's birth in 1849. The celebrations included a festive procession that ended at the newly erected Goethe Memorial by Ludwig Schwanthaler, which had been specially decorated for the occasion. The photographer Friedrich Carl Vogel captured views of this decorated memorial in seven salted paper prints; he also made another three such prints of the Goethe House. These photographs were used by the artist Gottlieb Bauer as models for two drawings which, in turn, served as models for the official centenary picture which was published in the Leipzig Illustrirte Zeitung. A closer examination of these different images shows how the rather modest Frankfurt anniversary celebrations, which were boycotted by the guilds, became more and more elaborate and, above all, nationalist, due to the fact Bauer had included guild members among the spectators at the procession and placed a German flag beside the Goethe Memorial. The official centenary picture published in the newspaper functioned more or less as propaganda: for a national state with Goethe as the national hero and the bourgeoisie as the politically supportive social class. ;
