Duse, Eleonora - ACTOR (ITALY) BORN 3 Oct 1858, Vigerano (Pavia) - DIED 21 Apr 1924, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania . GRAVE LOCATION Asolo: Cimitero di Santa Anna Eleonora Duse was born into an old Italian family of actors. She grew up in Chioggia and succesfully played Julia when she was fourteen. In 1879 she saw Sarah Bernhardt in Turin, and after this event she developed a completely different style of her own, dominated by feeling. Duse worked her way up to fame and she was especially great whilst portraying the sufferings of human beings. In Naples she appeared in Augier''s in “Les Fourchambault” (1878) and in London and New York she was succesful as Marguerite Gautier in “La dame aux camélias” by Alexandre Dumas fils. In 1894 she met Gabriele d''Annunzio and she was succesful in his “Francesca da Rimini” and “La città morta”. For a while they had a passionate relatonship and d''Annunzio wrote “La Gioconda” (1899) for her. With her own ensemble she performed in Vienna, Paris, St. Petersburg, London and Berlin. After playing in Ibsen''s “Frau von Meere” in 1909 she withdrew from the stage for twelve years. In 1916 she played in the film “Cenere”. In 1921 she revived her career at Turin. She travelled around restlessly until she died in a hotel room in Pittsburg during a tour in the US.

See Research notes. R. West: inscription on verso “Im Fohnsturm...” refers to a strong south wind. During Foehn Storm, 1886 From Wikipedia, April 2018: A föhn or foehn is a type of dry, warm, down-slope wind that occurs in the lee (downwind side) of a mountain range. Föhn can be initiated when deep low pressures move into Europe drawing moist Mediterranean air over the Alps. It is a rain shadow wind that results from the subsequent adiabatic warming of air that has dropped most of its moisture on windward slopes (see orographic lift). As a consequence of the different adiabatic lapse rates of moist and dry air, the air on the leeward slopes becomes warmer than equivalent elevations on the windward slopes. Föhn winds can raise temperatures by as much as 14 °C (25 °F) in just a matter of minutes. Central Europe enjoys a warmer climate due to the Föhn, as moist winds off the Mediterranean Sea blow over the Alps. In some regions, föhn winds are associated with causing “circulatory problems”, headaches, or similar ailments. Researchers have found, however, the foehn wind''s warm temperature to be beneficial to humans in most situations, and have theorised that the reported negative effects may be a result of secondary factors, such as changes in the electrical field or in the ion state of the atmosphere, the wind''s relatively low humidity, or the generally unpleasant sensation of being in an environment with strong and gusty winds.", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/1952.149_Fang_Low-Res.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/1952.149_Fang_Low-Res.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/1952.149_Fang_Low-Res.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/1952.149_Fang_Low-Res.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "10352", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
