Anglo-German count, diplomat, writer, publisher and patron of modern art who befriended many high profile artists and writers of his day. His homosexuality, which inevitably made him a psychological outsider, undoubtedly influenced his insight and critique of Wilhelmian culture. English translations of his diaries Journey to the Abyss (2011) and Berlin in Lights (1971) reveal anecdotes and details of artistic, theatrical, and political life in Europe, mostly in Germany, from the late 19th century through the collapse of Germany at the end of World War I until his death in Lyon on 30 November 1937 at age 69.
