Dioramas are often built by hobbyists as part ofrelated hobbies such as military vehicle modeling, miniature figure modeling, or aircraftmodeling.Contents 1 Etymology 2 The modern diorama o 2.1 Full size dioramas o 2.2 Miniature dioramas 3 Historic dioramas o 3.1 The Daguerre Dioramas o 3.2 The Gottstein Dioramas o 3.3 The Denny Stokes dioramas o 3.4 Other dioramas 4 See also 5 Notes 6 References 7 External links
  • DEFINITION1. A three-dimensional miniature or life-size scene in which figures, stuffed wildlife, or otherobjects are arranged in a naturalistic setting against a painted background.2. A scene reproduced on cloth transparencies with various lights shining through the clothsto produce changes in effect, intended for viewing at a distance through an aperture.[edit] EtymologyThe word "diorama" originated in 1823 as a type of picture-viewing device, from the Frenchin 1822. The word literally means "through that which is seen", from the Greek di- "through"+ orama "that which is seen, a sight." The diorama was invented by Louis-Jacques-MandéDaguerre and Charles Marie Bouton, first exhibited in London September 29, 1823. Themeaning "small-scale replica of a scene, etc" is from 1902.[1]Daguerres diorama consisted of a piece of material painted on both sides. When illuminaatedfrom the front, the scene would be shown in one state and by switching to illumination frombehind another phase or aspect would be seen. Scenes in daylight changed to moonlight, atrain travelling on a track would crash, or an earthquake would be shown in before and afterpictures.[edit] The modern dioramaThe current, popular understanding of the term "diorama" denotes a partially three-dimensional, full-size replica or scale model of a landscape typically showing historicalevents, nature scenes or cityscapes, for purposes of education or entertainment.First use of dioramas in a museum is in Romania by professor Grigore Antipa in 1907.Miniature dioramas are typically much smaller, and use scale models and landscaping tocreate historical or fictional scenes. Such a scale-model based diorama is used, for example,in Chicagos Museum of Science and Industry to display railroading. This diorama employs acommon model railroading scale of 1:87 (HO scale). Hobbyist dioramas often use popularscales such as 1/35 or 1/48.Sheperd Paine, a prominent hobbyist, popularized the modern miniature diorama beginningin the 1970s.[citation needed][edit] Full size dioramasA diorama in the Museum of Natural history in Milan (Italy).Modern museum dioramas may be seen in most major natural history museums. Typically,these displays use a tilted plane to represent what would otherwise be a level surface,incorporate a painted background of distant objects, and often employ false perspective,carefully modifying the scale of objects placed on the plane to reinforce the illusion throughdepth perception in which objects of identical real-world size placed farther from theobserver appear smaller than those closer. Often the distant painted background or sky will bepainted upon a continuous curved surface so that the viewer is not distracted by corners,seams, or edges. All of these techniques are means of presenting a realistic view of a large

A photograph or single-eye view of such a diorama can beespecially convincing since in this case there is no distraction by the binocular perception ofdepth.Carl Akeley, a naturalist, sculptor, and taxidermist, is credited with creating the first everhabitat diorama in the year 1889. Akeleys diorama featured taxidermied beavers in a three-dimensional habitat with a realistic, painted background. With the support of curator FrankM. Chapman, Akeley designed the popular habitat dioramas featured at the AmericanMuseum of Natural History. Combining art with science, these exhibitions were intended toeducate the public about the growing need for habitat conservation.[2][edit] Miniature dioramasMiniature diorama of a knocked-out Panther tankA 1/700 scale diorama of Japanese aircraft carrier Hiryū based on the left photo capturedduring the Battle of MidwayMiniature dioramas may be used to represent scenes from historic events. A typical exampleof this type are the dioramas to be seen at Norways Resistance Museum in Oslo, Norway.Landscapes built around model railways can also be considered dioramas, even though theyoften have to compromise scale accuracy for better operating characteristics.

A scene reproduced on cloth transparencies with various lights shining through the clothsto produce changes in effect, intended for viewing at a distance through an aperture.Hobbyists also build dioramas of historical or quasi-historical events using a variety ofmaterials, including plastic models of military vehicles, ships or other equipment, along withscale figures and landscaping.In the 19th and beginning 20th century, building dioramas of sailing ships had been a popularhandcraft of seamen. Building a diorama instead of a normal model had the advantage thatthe model was protected inside the frame and it could easily be stowed below the bunk orbehind the sea chest. Nowadays, such antique sailing ship dioramas are valuable collectorsitems.One of the largest Dioramas ever created[citation needed] was a model of the entire state ofCalifornia built for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 and that for a longtime was installed in San Franciscos Ferry Building.[edit] Historic dioramas[edit] The Daguerre DioramasGround-plan of the Diorama Building, London 1823, by A. Pugin and J. Morgan (illustrationreproduced from Gernsheim 1968, p 21)The Diorama was a popular entertainment that originated in Paris in 1822. An alternative tothe also popular "Panorama" (panoramic painting), the Diorama was a theatrical experienceviewed by an audience in a highly specialized theatre. As many as 350 patrons would file into view a landscape painting that would change its appearance both subtly and dramatically.Most would stand, though limited seating was provided. The show lasted 10 to 15 minutes,after which time the entire audience (on a massive turntable) would rotate to view a secondpainting. Later models of the Diorama theater even held a third painting.
  • DEFINITION1. A three-dimensional miniature or life-size scene in which figures, stuffed wildlife, or otherobjects are arranged in a naturalistic setting against a painted background.2. A scene reproduced on cloth transparencies with various lights shining through the clothsto produce changes in effect, intended for viewing at a distance through an aperture.The size of the proscenium was 24 feet (7.3 m) wide by 21 feet (6.4 m) high (7.3 meters x 6.4meters). Each scene was hand-painted on linen, which was made transparent in selectedareas. A series of these multi-layered, linen panels were arranged in a deep, truncated tunnel,then illuminated by sunlight re-directed via skylights, screens, shutters, and colored blinds.Depending on the direction and intensity of the skillfully manipulated light, the scene wouldappear to change. The effect was so subtle and finely rendered that both critics and the publicwere astounded, believing they were looking at a natural scene.The inventor and proprietor of the Diorama was Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre (1787–1851), formerly a decorator, manufacturer of mirrors, painter of Panoramas, and masterlydesigner and painter of theatrical stage illusions. Daguerre would later co-invent thedaguerreotype, the first widely used method of photography.Daguerre opened a second Diorama in Regents Park in London in 1823, a year after thedebut of his Paris original. The building which exhibited the diorama, was designed byAugustus Charles Pugin, father of the notable English architect and designer Augustus WelbyNorthmore Pugin. The show was a popular sensation, and spawned immediate imitations.British artists like Clarkson Stanfield and David Roberts produced ever-more elaboratedioramas through the 1830s; sound effects and even living performers were added. Some"typical diorama effects included moonlit nights, winter snow turning into a summermeadow, rainbows after a storm, illuminated fountains," waterfalls, thunder and lightning,and ringing bells.[3] A diorama painted by Daguerre is currently housed in the church of theFrench town Bry-sur-Marne, where he lived and died.[4][5]Daguerre diorama exhibitions (R.D.

  • DEFINITION1. A three-dimensional miniature or life-size scene in which figures, stuffed wildlife, or otherobjects are arranged in a naturalistic setting against a painted background.2. A scene reproduced on cloth transparencies with various lights shining through the clothsto produce changes in effect, intended for viewing at a distance through an aperture.Until 1968 Britain boasted a large collection of dioramas. These collections were originallyhoused in the Royal United Services Institute Museum, (formerly the Banqueting House), inWhitehall. However, when the museum closed, the various exhibits and their 15 knowndioramas were distributed to smaller museums throughout England, some ending up inCanada and elsewhere. These dioramas were the brainchild of the wealthy furrier OttoGottstein (1892–1951) of Leipzig, a Jewish immigrant from Hitler‟s Germany, who was anavid collector and designer of flat model figures called flats. In 1930, Gottstein‟s influence isfirst seen at the Leipzig International Exhibition, along with the dioramas of Hahnemann ofKiel, Biebel of Berlin and Muller of Erfurt, all displaying their own figures, and thosecommissioned from such as Ludwig Frank in large diorama form. In 1933 Gottstein leftGermany, and in 1935 founded the British Model Soldier Society. Gottstein persuadeddesigner and painter friends in both Germany and France to help in the construction ofdioramas depicting notable events in English history. But due to the war, many of the figuresarrived in England incomplete. The task of turning Gottstein‟s ideas into reality fell to hisEnglish friends and those friends who had managed to escape from the Continent. Dennis(Denny) C. Stokes, a talented painter and diorama maker in his own right, was responsible forthe painting of the backgrounds of all the dioramas, creating a unity seen throughout thewhole series. Denny Stokes was given the overall supervision of the fifteen dioramas. 1. The Landing of the Romans under Julius Caesar in 55 B.C. 2. The Battle of Hastings. 3. The Storming of Acre. (figures by Muller.) 4. The Battle of Crecy. (figures by Muller.) 5. The Field of the Cloth of Gold. 6. The Queen Elizabeth reviewing her troops at Tilbury. 7. The Battle of Marston Moor. 8. The Battle of Blenheim. (painted by Douchkine.) 9. The Battle of Plessey. 10. The Battle of Quebec. (engraved by Krunert of Vienna.) 11. The Old Guard at Waterloo. 12. The Charge of the Light Brigade. 13. The Battle of Ulundi. (figures by Ochel, and Petrocochino - pseudonym of Paul Armont.) 14. The Battle of Fleurs. 15. The D-Day landings.Krunert, Schirmer, Frank, Frauendorf, Maier, Franz Rieche and Oesterrich were alsoinvolved in the manufacture and design of figures for the various dioramas. Krunert (aViennese), like Gottstein an exile in London, was given the job of engraving for ‘The Battleof Quebec’. Unfortunately, the ‘death of Wolfe’ was found to be inaccurate and had to be re-designed. The names of the vast majority of painters employed by Gottstein are mostlyunknown, most lived and worked on the Continent, among them Gustave Kenmow, LeopoldRieche, L.Dunekate, M.Alexandre, A.Ochel, Honey Ray and, perhaps Gottstein‟s top painter,Vladimir Douchkine (a Russian émigré who lived in Paris). Douchkine was responsible forpainting two figures of the Duke of Marlborough on horseback for ‘The Blenheim Diorama’,one of which was used, the other, Gottstein being the true collector, was never released.

A scene reproduced on cloth transparencies with various lights shining through the clothsto produce changes in effect, intended for viewing at a distance through an aperture.Denny Stokes painted all the backgrounds of all the dioramas, Herbert Norris, the HistoricalCostume Designer, whom Dr. J.F. Lovel-Barnes introduced to Gottstein, was responsible forthe costume design of the Ancient Britons, the Normans and Saxons, some of the figures of‘The Field of the Cloth of Gold’ and the Elizabethan figures for ‘Queen Elizabeth at Tilbury’.Dr. J.F. Lovel-Barnes was himself responsible for the ‘Battle of Blenheim’ diorama, selectingthe figures, and arrangement of the scene. Due to World War II, when flat figures becameunavailable, Gottstein completed his ideas by using Greenwood and Ball‟s 20mm figures. Intime a fifteenth diorama was added, using these 20mm figures, this diorama representing the‘D-Day landings’. When all the dioramas were completed, they were displayed along onewall in the Royal United Services Institute Museum. When the museum was closed thefifteen dioramas were distributed to various museums and institutions. The greatest numberare to be found at the Glenbow Museum, (130-9th Avenue, S. E. Calgary, Alberta, Canada):RE: The Landing of the Romans under Julius Caesar in 55 BC, The Battle Of Crecy, TheBattle of Blenheim, The Old Guard at Waterloo, The Charge of the Light Brigade atBalaclava.The state of these dioramas is one of debate; John Garratt (The World of Model Soldiers)claimed in 1968, that the dioramas “appear to have been partially broken up and individualfigures have been sold to collectors”. According to the Glenbow Institute (Barry Agnew,Curator) “the figures are still in reasonable condition, but the plaster groundwork has sufferedconsiderable deterioration”. Unfortunately, there are no photographs available of thedioramas. ‘The Battle of Hastings’ diorama was to be found in the Old Town Museum,Hastings, and is still in reasonable condition. It shows the Norman cavalry charging upSenlac Hill towards the Saxon lines. „The Storming of Acre’ is in the Museum of Artillery atthe Rotunda, Woolwich. John Garratt, in the "Encyclopedia of Model Soldiers", states that„The Field of the Cloth of Gold’ was in the possession of the Royal Military School of Music,Kneller Hall; however, according to the Curator, the diorama had not been in his possessionsince 1980, nor is it listed in their Accession Book, so the whereabouts of this diorama isunknown.[6][edit] The Denny Stokes dioramasVery little is known about Dennis C. Stokes, (d.1989), except that he lived in Ealing inLondon, 1956/57, and was the subject of a 1957 Pathe Film documentary, which narrated hiscreation of five of his own miniature military dioramas.[7] According to issue one of theJournal of the British Flat Figure Society (1986);The five known Denny Stokes dioramas, as depicted and narrated by Pathe film 1957. (Seehere:[1]) 1. Scotland after the 45 rebellion: 2. The Battle of Quebec: 3. The D-Day Landing: 4. Fur trading station in Canada: 5. Hunting scene from Luis 14th:

The mainsubject of Mr. Stokes dioramas is military history. He uses all sorts of materials to depict theevents from military history in greatest detail possible. (L/S) of fairy tale landscape: a castle,little boat, mountains in the fog - all in shades of blue. (C/U) shot of the detail - entrance intothe castle with opened gates and people inside. (C/U) shot of another details - a little boat,soldiers marching, a man and his horse... Voiceover talks about what this represents:"Scotland after the 45 rebellion, showing the English troops occupying a castle, and theopposing Highland rebels of Bonnie Prince Charlie."This „Scotland after the 45 rebellion,‟ is the only one of his depicted dioramas, which can beseen, during the filming of this Pathe documentary, as being finished in January 1957. Thisdiorama was never commissioned for a museum, but was designed and created for hispersonal collection, and remained in his possession as such, until his death in 1989. With theexception of its appearance on this Pathe film in 1957, this rare diorama had never appearedin any public exhibition, until exhibited (without provenance or film), as part of a largercollection of model soldiers, cavalry, and other dioramas, exhibited at the Soldiers LifeExhibition, Newcastle upon Tyne Discovery Museum, between 1998-1999.[8]Two dioramas depict the scaling of the Heights of Abraham at Quebec by General Wolfe andthe East Yorkshires in 1759, and of the D-day landing at Colleville-Sur-Orne, which wereboth, commissioned for, and can be seen at, the "East Yorkshire Regiment Museum".Another diorama represents a fur trading station in Canada, with a canoe in a river,wigwams, log cabins, and background mountains. Another depicts a hunting scene of Luis the14th, showing people on horses, and a deer in the woods, the whereabouts of both these areunknown.[edit] Other dioramasThis photorealistic diorama of the Battle of Midway was created during World War II on thebasis of information then available.Painters of the Romantic era like John Martin and Francis Danby were influenced to createlarge and highly dramatic pictures by the sensational dioramas and panoramas of their day. Inone case, the connection between life and diorama art became intensely circular. On 1February 1829, John Martins brother Jonathan, known as "Mad Martin," set fire to the roofof York Minster. Clarkson Stanfield created a diorama re-enactment of the event, which

On 27 May, the "safe" fire proved to be less safe than planned: it set a real firein the painted cloths of the imitation fire, which burned down the theater and all of itsdioramas.[9]Nonetheless, dioramas remained popular in England, Scotland, and Ireland through most ofthe nineteenth century, lasting until 1880.A small scale version of the diorama called the Polyrama Panoptique could display images inthe home. and was marketed from the 1820s.[10][edit] See also Model military vehicle Model figure Nativity scene Cosmorama Cyclorama Moving panorama Myriorama Panorama Panoramic painting Planetarium Armor Modeling and Preservation Society Model railroading[edit] Notes 1. ^ diorama - Word Origin & History - Online Etymology Dictionary - Dictionary.com.
