Additions to The Face Of Bach - http://www.npj.com/thefaceofbach
I apologize for my recent silence, but the demands of the "real" world and
particularly my law practice during the last couple of weeks have prevented
me from finishing and refining the additional pages.
Almost all of the pages that I initially intended to post at The Face Of Bach
are now in place, and, I cautiously hope, are "glitch free", that is, purged
of defective links and with no "broken" images.
In addition to the page on which I discuss why the Weydenhammer Portrait
Fragment is the long lost portrait that belonged to Kittel, I have posted
pages on the the provenance of the painting and what I think needs to be
investigated next. I also have posted my preliminary conclusions on the
genuineness of the Volbach Portrait.
Although at least one of them ultimattely will be expanded significantly,
only one of the pages on the documentary evidence and the documented
portraits remains to be installed. That page is the one devoted to the
forensic anatomical evidence. Because the 1894 exhumation in the
Johanneskirchof and the subsequent report on the skeleton that was exhumed
have been the subject of so much interest on the various Bach lists, I have
decided to post the Exhumation Report of 1895 in its entirety. I have not
as yet completed the scans, and I have not as yet begun to construct the html
for that series of pages, but I am going to do my best to have Dr. His's
report and the accompanying statistical tables and photogravure plates "on
line" for you within the next two weeks.
All of the pages are "preliminary" versions, and all are certained to be
revised and in many cases expanded significantly.
I shall continue to keep you informed of the updates as they are installed.
Those of you who are not subscribers to TheFaceOfBach@egroups.com list and
who might be interested in joining will find a link to the List's page at
egroups near the bottom of the opening page at The Face Of Bach.
Finally, I want again to express my thanks to Nathan Johansen, my webmaster,
and to RainbowFlag for having provided the cyberspace for The Face Of Bach
and for having made sure that the site is as free of tehcnical problems as
I hope that you will find the additional pages to be worth the wait, and I
thank you all for your interest and support.
