116 THE ARTISANS ' 36 PADEREWSKI— MUSICAN, PRIME MINISTER Uv Virginia Merrill [gnace Jan Paderewski started out in life witli two great visions. He saw himself as a great composer. But being a Pole, he also saw himself as the savior of Poland — every young Pole of his country did. In his case the two visions united in the dream of saving Poland by his music. During the century of their bondage, from 1815 to 1915, the men of Poland throve on the legend of their country ' s marthyrdom. When the war broke out Poles all over the world (especially American) were gripped by a feverish hope: the hour for whose advent they had prayed for a century, struck at last. In 1914 Paderewski, wealthy, successful, and happy was living in bis idyllic retreat on Lake Leman, Switzerland. But Ignace, the great patriot, started in 1915, at Geneva, a relief fund for his countrymen. I le contribu- ted his money, his time, bis art, bis sleep, his health to the cause. Then he came to America. His arrival in America virtually marked the end of his career as an artist, and the beginning of his career as a statesman. At the end of the war the White Eagle of Poland was soaring high again on the day when the Black Eagle of Prussia was smitten dead. Once more there was a government at Warsaw; once more there was a Polish army. When Paderewski arrived in Poland, successful, be was made a Prime Minister. He endured the hopeless muddle of Polish politics for a year — he sacrificed the last remnants of his wealth, bis nervous energy, bis hopes. Then he resigned in 1919. Beginning all over again, he once more became the world ' s greatest artist. He still wants to be rich in order to serve an ideal — he wants to aid bis beloved Poland. In the spring of 1936, Ignace Jan Paderewski consented to broad- cast, by radio, his great ability as a pianist to millions. For a moment his art conquered the world, and after he has passed on he will be remembered by a minuet.
