Napoleon Orda’s Palaces and Manor Houses

, , , ,

A moving and nostalgic video which adds a musical background to 19th century hand-colored sketches of palaces and manor-houses in the former Grand Duchy of Lithuania (today’s Lithuania and Belarus) by the artist Napoleon Orda. Orda’s drawings record the romantic architecture of an aristocratic world swept out of existence by Revolutionary violence and totalitarianism.

The “Eastern Borderlands” is a translation of the Polish word kresy.
