Summary
This program looks at the art works that were created in the year; 1776. In the US, 1776 was the year of the Declaration of Independence. Charles Wilson Peale was the artist who painted not only the likes of George Washington, but also the faces of ordinary folk. Meanwhile in Austria, Haydn was in the services of Count Esterhazy and composed innumerable operas and musical pieces for his employer. Emperor Ch'ien Lung was in his 41st year of rule in China and he ordered the creation of the Four Treasures ? 36,000 volumes of literature ? to be copied and housed in his library. In France, Jean-Jacques Rousseau's works and writings led in part to the French Revolution. In St. Petersburg, Catherine II had a statue built of Peter the Great by French sculptor Etienne Falconet in honour of the founder of the city.
