Explanation

  • Ida Brun (1792-1857) was given a very extensive aesthetic upbringing by her mother, Friederike Brun, to enable her to become the ideal of female beauty, charm, intellect and talent. Ida had to devote herself to everything beautiful – nature in its splendour and exquisite art, and she was given the best teachers in language, music, singing, dancing and drawing. Her attitude dancing and her beautiful singing voice were much admired by her contemporaries.
