24 mars : anniversaire de la mort de Nestor L’Hôte - Des dessins de Champollion au destin de Mariette

24 mars : anniversaire de la mort de Nestor L’Hôte - Des dessins de Champollion au destin de Mariette | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it

Nestor Hippolyte Antoine L’Hôte naît le 24 août 1804. Très tôt il se passionne pour l'Égypte. À dix ans, il embaume les animaux et leur élève, dans le jardin de son père, des monuments funéraires en forme de pyramides.
Cette passion se renforce et se confirme lorsqu'il prend connaissance des découvertes de Champollion sur la lecture des hiéroglyphes.
En marge de son emploi aux douanes, il rédige un traité d’archéologie égyptienne, qu’il montre à Champollion lors d’un dîner. Le savant l’encourage à poursuivre. De là naîtront des relations amicales et scientifiques entre Nestor L’Hôte et le “père de l’égyptologie”.

En 1828, Champollion, alors conservateur des Antiquités égyptiennes du musée Charles X (futur musée du Louvre), prépare une expédition pour visiter les monuments de l'Égypte antique et acheter des objets pour les collections royales. C'est tout naturellement qu'il demande à Nestor L’Hôte de rejoindre l'expédition "franco-toscane". Sont également du voyage Charles Lenormant, inspecteur des Beaux-Arts, Antoine Bibent, architecte, ainsi que trois autres peintres : Alexandre Duchesne, Pierre Lehoux et Edouard Bertin fils. La partie italienne compte six membres placés sous la direction d'Ippolito Rosellini.

Le 19 août 1828, l’expédition débarque à Alexandrie, où elle est accueillie par Bernardino Drovetti, consul de France, et le vice-roi d’Égypte Mehemet Ali. Puis deux dahabiehs sont affrétées pour remonter le Nil jusqu’en Haute-Égypte, après un arrêt obligé à Tanis et un autre de dix jours, en plein Baïram, au Caire, pour une visite de Saqqarah et du plateau de Guizeh.
Pendant quasiment un an et demi, l'équipe franco-toscane travaille dans des conditions parfois très difficiles, pour décrire, déchiffrer et dater les monuments. Thèbes, Karnak, la Vallée des Rois, Abou Simbel, etc., tous les sites majeurs de la Haute-Égypte sont visités. Nestor L’Hôte, quant à lui, est évidemment à ses crayons, à ses couleurs et à ses pinceaux. Il réalise quelque 500 esquisses et aquarelles, au point d’avoir “Thèbes dans sa poche” !

Le travail est si assidu que la fatigue et l’épuisement commencent à créer des tensions au sein des membres de l’expédition. Pas le moindre jour de repos. “Dieu ! se plaint Nestor L’Hôte, que l’hiéroglyphe est ennuyeux, qu’il est accablant ! Nous en avons tous une indigestion ; tout le monde se relâche et ne travaille que par raison, par devoir. En avons-nous avalé ! En avons-nous englouti ! Une année de travail, une année sans interruption, pas un jour de repos, pas un jour de répit !” 
Trop, c‘est trop ! Duchesne s’en va, alors que Bertin et Lehoux sont à deux doigts de l’imiter. L’Hôte, qui a mis le feu aux poudres, décide néanmoins de rester.

Le retour en France a lieu le 24 mars 1830. Champollion décèdera deux ans plus tard.
Marqué par son expérience en terre égyptienne, Nestor L’Hôte ne se sent plus concerné par ses fonctions dans l’administration des douanes. Dans le sillage de son maître en égyptologie, il consacre tout son temps aux hiéroglyphes et retournera même deux autres fois, seul, en Égypte.

En mars 1838, il s’installe à Gournah, puis dans la Vallée des Rois, et travaille sur la tombe d’Aÿ pour compléter les dessins déjà réalisés lors du premier séjour. 
Lors de son troisième séjour, en 1841, il fait quelques copies d'inscriptions du sanctuaire d'Isis dans le temple de Behbeit el-Hagara, ainsi que des dessins du texte gravé au linteau des portes du petit temple rupestre de Sikayt.
Nestor L’Hôte décède le 24 mars 1842. Il n’aura pas eu le temps de mener à bien la publication de ses manuscrits, classés par dates. C’est un cousin qui s’en chargera et décidera même, dans la foulée, de “tout quitter”. 
Son nom ? Auguste Mariette !

The stories told about leprechauns have changed considerably through the centuries. They once dressed in red. At one time they lived under water and the females dragged men to their deaths. Like all creatures of Faerie, their origins and demeanor are fluid, yet they remain tricksy.

Aviva Kempner's "Rosenwald" : An Education! | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
Julius Rosenwald was a man of conscience who saw a problem which effected the lives of countless oppressed African Americans and took action. Rosenwald (1862 - 1932), JR to his friends and colleagues, was the son of immigrant refugees. He became a peddler, a clothier and founded America's largest clothing and variety store Sears Roebuck Company.

Even as he became President of Sears Roebuck and one of the nation's richest men, Rosenwald did not forget his humble origins. Both his family and his wife's had fled the instability and persecution of Jews in Central Europe. Because of this, Rosenwald felt that Jews had a special role in fighting religious and racial oppression. Two friends helped push JR along this road: Paul Sachs, senior partner in the investment house Goldman Sachs, and influential Jewish Reform Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch.
