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...

Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
