Vanad meistrid

Selles vaimukas ja satiirilises romaanis, Austria möödunud sajandi ühe olulisema kirjaniku teoses, kutsub Reger oma sõbra Atzbacheri endaga ühte Viini kunstimuuseumisse kohtuma. Samal ajal kui Reger Tintoretto portreed silmitseb, jutustab Atzbacher, kes kardab, et Reger plaanib end tappa, lugejale oma muusikateadlasest sõbrast: tema teadmistest, pühendumisest oma naisele, vihkamise ja armastuse suhtest kunstiga. Oma iseloomuliku mõrkja vaimukusega paljastab Bernhard inimkonna pretensioonid ja püüdlused romaanis, mis on ühtaegu nii pessimistlik kui ka kummaliselt rõõmustav.

Thomas Bernard

Sir Thomas Bernard, 3rd Baronet (April 27, 1750 - July 1, 1818) was an English social helper who, as governor of the Province of Maryland Bay (1760-1770), played a responsible part in directing the British policy which led to the revolt of the American colonies. He was born at Lincoln, the younger son of Sir Francis Bernard, 1st Baronet. Rather late in his life, on the death of his elder brother in 1810, Bernard succeeded to the baronetcy conferred on his father in 1768.

His early education was obtained in America, partly at Harvard, in which college his father took a great interest. He then acted as confidential secretary to his father during the troubles which led (1769) to the governor's recall, and accompanied Sir Francis to England, where he was called to the bar, and practised as a conveyancer.

He married a rich wife, and acquired a considerable fortune, and then devoted most of his time to social work for the benefit of the poor. From 1795 to 1806 he was treasurer of the Foundling Hospital for abandoned babies, in the concerns of which he took an important part. After his treasurership he continued to play a role on the charity's Court of Governors holding the honorary title of Vice President, but resigned when taking on the baronetcy in 1810. He also helped to establish in 1796 the "Society for Bettering the Condition and Increasing the Comforts of the Poor," in 1800 a school for indigent blind, and in 1801 a fever institution.

He was active in promoting vaccination, improving the conditions of child labour, advocating rural allotments, and agitating against the salt duties. He took great interest in education, and with Count Rumford he was an originator of the Royal Institution in London. He died without issue on the 1st of July 1818.----
