Hillwood Chronicles Life of an American Diplomat in 1820s Russia - The Washington DiplomatFriday, April 21, 2017
Emperor Alexander I, the Decembrist revolt and the coronation of Emperor Nicholas I.The exhibit also focuses on the social aspects of diplomacy. The people the Middleton family encountered during their St. Petersburg years are rendered in meticulous watercolor portraits, with great concern given to depicting the individuality of the subject in their expression and attire. These portraits capture the fashions and trends of the day, with many of the women wearing dramatic, puffed skirts and sleeves, corseted waists, elaborate hairstyles and hourglass silhouettes that reflect the emerging romantic era.Daughter Eleanor's social diary also paints a detailed picture of the family's life in St. Petersburg, along with letters that Henry's wife Mary Helen wrote to her younger children left in the care of family in England. The writings include meticulous descriptions of the array of sumptuous balls, banquets, receptions and parades that the family attended, as well as their visits to St. Petersburg's gardens, palaces and parks.The response of the D.C. diplomatic community to the exhibition has shown that in many ways, the profession has changed little since the years documented in "Friends and Fashion," curator Angie Dodson told The Washington Diplomat."Their message to me about their takeaway from the exhibition has been that the more things change, the more they stay the same," she said, noting that it has been interesting "for them to look at what diplomacy looked like in the 1820s in Russia and see their own experience in that."One aspect that has sparked questions from visitors connected with the diplomatic world is why Henry Middleton was a minister and not an ambassador to Russia.portrait of La Baronne de Meyendorf Dodson explained that Middleton held the lower-level post because the United States was still a very young nation at the time and did not "have that kind of standing on the international scene just yet.She added: "The leader of the free world having to remember our humble roots before we attained the position of power that we have today — that's been a subject of fascination for our retired diplomats and the active diplomats who are posted here now who have visited."The portraits on display are strikingly intimate and personal, and the exhibition provides historical context to build out the very vivid world in which the sitters lived.Two of the portraits from the family album are by painter Pyot...
