Madame Tussau And Her Wax Figures

You have probably already been in the Madame Tussaus’ museum, and you were wandering about the accuracy and vitality of the famous and lesser known figures. To us, from Raya London Training Center, we will be able to offer you, besides English knowledge, additional and interesting facts about British history, culture and life. Today we will look at a lady who had an iron heart and an artist’s hand.

Madame Tussaud (Madame Tussaud) Wax Sculpturer was originally called Marie Grossholz. She was born in 1761. in the city of Strasbourg, France. The man who plays a major role in her future activities is the boss of her mother, Philip Curcius, a doctor from Bern. He himself, too, has produced human wax images, and Marie’s mother helped him in the pursuit. Later, the doctor moved to Paris and took his 6 year old assistant, Marie. Obviously, he is the person who gives her the secrets of the craft. In 1777. Marie Grossholz created her first wax sculpture – that of Voltaire. Later he made the works of his famous contemporaries – Jean Jacques Rousseau and Benjamin Franklin.

The frightening, death-revenge French Revolution comes, and Marie Groscolz walks between the slain to look for detached heads whose prints to take and recreate from wax. Since she was an art teacher of King Louis XVI’s sister in Versailles, the future Madame Tussauds is in custody and under threat of execution. After the intervention of an influential friend, however, the young master of the wax was released from prison.

In 1794. Mr. Curtius dies and Marie Grosholtz inherits his large collection of wax figures, a part in which he has built himself. With this collection, looking for the audience’s interest, she travels around Europe. In 1795.  She marries Francois Tussauds. He cannot go to France because of the Napoleonic wars and prefers to travel to Britain and Ireland with his interesting figures. Her first permanent exhibition is housed on the top floor of Baker Street Bazaar.

In 1835. Marie Tuusso’s collection is set up at Baker Street in a museum, one of the attractive exposures is the Horror Room. It includes the faces of those who died in the French Revolution, as well as those of murderer and various criminals. Meanwhile, figures of people known to date like Lord Nelson are still being made.

One of the oldest figures in the collection of Madame Tussaud’s Museum is the Sleeping Beauty whose masterpiece is Madame du Barry, one of the aristocratic victims of the French Revolution. She is a beauties on a couch, sleeping on her arm. A mechanism that imitates even breathing is mounted in her chest.Madame Tussaud died in his sleep in 1850.In 1883. Madame Tussaug’s grandson, after taking up the rent, moved the collection to her current address. The fire in 1925. and the bombing of London in 1941 ruined some of the patterns, but many others have been made since then. All the celebrities of our past and present are presented at Madame Tussauds: Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philippe, Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Keira Knightley, Adolf Hitler, and Marie Tussaur herself. The museum is so growing that it opens its branches in other major cities around the world: Las Vegas, Beijing, Bangkok, New York, Sydney, Vienna, Tokyo and others. Friends, the story of this French-Swiss lady shows that following our talent can make us part of the history of mankind. Marie Grossholz  began a vast empire of wax figures. She did everything to follow the trend, to find the most interesting of her time, to bring out the most famous. We do not have such a great ambition, we just want to pass on your knowledge of English and English grammar so that you can develop your talents on British soil and fulfill your destiny without hindrances and obstacles.Ask for our trainings and visit the Heavenly Learning Center to find a partner in conquering your future in the UK.
