The Struggle of the Nations By GASTON MASPERO
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The Struggle of the Nations Maspero in this work gives us the second volume of his great historical trilogy. He shows in parallel views the part played in the history of the ancient world by the... More > first Chaldæan Empire, by Syria, by the Hyksos, or shepherd kings, of Egypt, and by the first Cossæan kings who established the greatness of Nineveh and the Assyrian Empire. The great Theban dynasty is then exhibited in its romantic rise under the Pharaohs. Maspero writes not as a mere chronicler or reciter of events, but as a philosophical historian.

In 1864 he painted a big picture “Messengers of the Resurrection”. The new religious painting at that time was not much of a success, and the Imperial Academy refused to exhibit it in its annual exhibition. “Peter the Great Interrogates Tsarevich Alexey at Peterhof” (1871) was a great success, but other historical paintings were met without interest. Ge took the cold response to his work very hard. In the early 1880s he returned to art producing religious paintings and portraits of his contemporaries.
