This abstract series is dedicated to Duchess Anna Amalia (1739-1807). As an affluent noble and influential patroness of art and literature, grand-daughter of Frederick the Great of Prussia, Anna Amalia cultivated and supported many of the greatest minds of European theatre—most notably Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller (whose poem “An die Freude” formed the nucleus of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony). As an 18th century inspiration for many women to follow, Anna Amalia founded a theatrical company, was a notable symphonic composer, and endowed a library which is now home to over 1,000,000 volumes.
