Topic: Charles Cameron


  
  CAMERON, Simon
CAMERON, GEN. SIMON, son of Charles Cameron and Martha Pfoutz, was born March 8, 1799, at Maytown, Lancaster county, Pa. On the paternal side he is descended from the clan Cameron, of Scotland, who shared their fortunes with the unfortunate Charles Edward, whose star of hope sunk on the field of Culloden.
Charles Cameron and Martha Pfoutz had a large family, yet a remarkable one, and the history of our country gives but few instances of the successful career of an entire family, among whom the subject of this sketch is the most prominent.
Cameron, declaring his election to the Senate as having been outside the party organization, but this treatment he found to his cost was not conducive to his own peace of mind, sent for General Cameron, made a, truce with him, and there was never any more trouble.

 Cameron's biography
Cameron's view is clearly stated in a letter to Sir John Herschel, to whom she writes, "My aspirations are to ennoble Photography and to secure for it the character and uses of High Art by combining the real and ideal sacrificing nothing of Truth by all possible devotion to Poetry and beauty" (Johnson 364).
Cameron's illustrations are culled from the segments entitled "Gareth and Lynette", "Geraint and Enid", "Merlin and Vivien", "Lancelot and Elaine", "The Holy Grail", "Guinevere", and "The Passing of Arthur".
Cameron reveals Guinevere as a soul struggling to maintain her vows and innocence, and the harmony of Camelot, where the dominance of the male is unquestioned.

 Charles Cameron Architect - Part Two
Cameron worked not only for the Empress; she also found him a post with her son and heir, the Grand Duke Paul, and his Consort, the Grand Duchess Marie Feodorovna (an intimate friend of the unfortunate Marie Antoinette), who were both great admirers of his work.
Cameron wanted decoration similar to that at Tsarskoe, with arabesques and vivid colours, but Marie and Paul were in favour of something "simpler and noble." As a result of this circumstance, it is sometimes difficult to trace exactly which part is Cameron's and which Brenna's (e.g., the Hall of War and the Hall of Peace).
Cameron also completed the first floor and a few rooms on the second, before he was superseded by Brenna.
