Under the sun of Arcadia, a room at the Handel House

Georg Frideric Handel (Georg Friedrich Händel) was born in Halle (Saale) in 1685 and lived in this city for 18 years. Today, his birthplace houses an exhibition on the life and work of the composer. It is generally known as the Handel House (Händel-Haus). [German]

The photo shows the room “Under the Sun of Arcadia” and refers to the fact that a part of Handel’s works was created under an arbour in Italy.
