Prague 7-Holešovice
"L’Epopée des Slaves" d’Alfons Mucha exposée à Prague après 84 ans d’absence
« L’Epopée des Slaves », l’œuvre magistrale du maître de l’Art Nouveau, est de nouveau exposée à Prague. Mucha avait réalisé ce cycle de 20 toiles pour la capitale tchèque mais il n’y fut exposé qu’une seule fois, en 1928. C’est un événement pour Prague. Mucha avait réalisé cette œuvre comme un testament pour la ville et pour le peuple tchécoslovaque. Les 20 toiles présentent l’histoire des slaves depuis leurs origines (Les Slaves dans leur site préhistorique) jusqu’au XXe siècle (L’Apothéose des Slaves). Dans un contrat passé en 1913 avec l’américain slavophile et mécène Charles Crane, l’artiste avait promis d’offrir son Epopée à Prague à condition que cette dernière construise un bâtiment spécialement pour accueillir le cycle de 20 œuvres. Mais l’édifice ne vit jamais le jour. Depuis le 10 mai 2012, 84 ans plus tard, L’Epopée des Slaves est donc de nouveau dans la capitale tchèque. Le cycle est exposé au même endroit, dans le hall de l’ancien Palais des foires (Veletrzni Palac). Le directeur de la Galerie municipale de Prague a annoncé à l’AFP que l’exposition durerait 5 ans. « De nouveaux systèmes de chauffage, d’air conditionné et d’éclairage ont été installés afin d’assurer des conditions stables pour ces tableaux précieux ».

20th Century Ceramics
Many of the surveys to date have discussed factories or potters or artists as if they were completely disassociated from the times in which they were living, and as if they were completely unaware of their contemporaries. Rather than producing a survey in which only a shooting gallery of iconic pots or famous artists are presented I have tried to reveal the contexts in which these ceramics were made and why they were made.' Anyone concerned with art and creativity in the modern era, including schools, art colleges and collectors, will be grateful for this introduction to one of the most popular and challenging art forms of our time. The profusely illustrated book charts the development of ceramics in the modern age, from Art Nouveau, Art Deco, the Bauhaus and Futurism, through Abstract Expressionism, Pop and Performance, to Land Art and Installation Art. There are clear introductions to pioneering techniques, glazes and approaches, in context and in practice, from Orientalism and colour theory to Modernism, Postmodernism and the profuse diversity of the end of the twentieth century. A practising potter and writer of international note, Edmund de Waal examines the increasing cross-fertilization between ceramics and other disciplnes, such as painting, sculpture and architecture, and provides detailed and compelling analysis of individual pieces in context. 21.00 x 15.00 cm Paperback 224pp 178 Illustrations, 77 in colour First published 2003
20th Century Jewelry - The Complete Sourcebook
The most comprehensive and detailed history and sourcebook of twentieth-century jewelry ever published John Peacock charts the development of every kind and style of twentieth-century jewelry for both women and men: earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, and bangles, brooches, rings, buckles and clasps, dress clips, hair and hat ornaments, watches, cufflinks, tiepins. . . Precious jewelry, costume and novelty jewelry are all included, and every style from Art Nouveau to Pop Art and retro. John Peacock’s research, using not only paintings and photographs, but also the jewelry itself, has allowed him to reproduce in meticulous detail a host of representative pieces from every year of the century. All the great twentieth-century designers and houses are featured – among them Lalique, Cartier, Chaumet, Georg Jensen, Fulco di Verdura, Schlumberger, Miriam Haskell, Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpels and Tiffany & Co. – as well as the mass-produced jewelry their designs inspired. The pictures are accompanied by full descriptions, including details of materials, stones, designs, fastenings, mounts and surrounds. An invaluable reference section includes a time chart summarizing the development of jewelry through the century, biographies of the leading international jewellers, and a concise bibliography. This encyclopaedic survey is destined to become the unrivalled reference work in its field, indispensable to any jewelry enthusiast, designer, student or collector. 32.00 x 24.00 cm Hardback 144pp Over 1500 illustrations in colour First published 2002

Agathon Léonard Le geste Art nouveau
Cette première monographie consacrée au sculpteur Agathon Léonard (1841-1923) donne à redécouvrir un artiste de renom de l’époque Art nouveau. En 1900, durant l’Exposition universelle de Paris, Léonard connaît la gloire en présentant dans le pavillon de la manufacture nationale de Sèvres un surtout de table en biscuit réunissant quinze magnifiques danseuses : le Jeu de l’écharpe. Fort de ce succès, Léonard passe ensuite contrat avec Susse Frères, fondeur-éditeur à Paris, qui réalise ce chef-d’œuvre en bronze et en fait ainsi de superbes objets d’art, diffusés dans le monde entier. L’emblématique Jeu de l’écharpe figure au centre de cet ouvrage de référence, enrichi d’études qui embrassent la variété de l’œuvre du sculpteur. Exposition : Exposition présentée au musée d'Art et d'Industrie André-Diligent - La Piscine, Roubaix, du 11 mars au 9 juin 2003 et au Musée départemental de l'Oise, Beauvais, du 25 juin au 26 octobre 2003 Prix : 30.00 € Reliure : Broché avec rabats Pages : 128 Illustrations : 100 Format : 21 x 28 cm Langue(s) : Français
Alexandre Charpentier (1856-1909) - Naturalisme et Art Nouveau
Alexandre Charpentier (1856-1909) a joué un rôle essentiel dans l'émergence de l'Art Nouveau. Il a milité pour que l'art soit à la portée de tous et gagne le décor de la vie quotidienne, au-delà des clivages entre Beaux-Arts et arts décoratifs. Touche à tout de génie, il expérimente une palette infinie de techniques et de matériaux : plâtre, marbre, bronze, or, argent, étain, porcelaine, grès, cérame, pâte de verre, estampe en relief et en couleurs, affiche, cuir gaufré... Toujours à l'avant-garde, Charpentier expose avec les néo-impressionnistes, comme Signac et Pissarro. Pendant l'affaire Dreyfus, il se range aux côtés de Zola. Musicien, il est très lié à Debussy ; il fréquente aussi le théâtre libre d'André Antoine. Célèbre de son vivant, mais éclipsé pendant un siècle, ce précurseur du design est à nouveau mis à l'honneur par ce catalogue, premier et unique ouvrage de référence sur son oeuvre.
Alfonse Mucha (1860-1939)
L'œuvre d'Alfons Mucha, célèbre artiste tchèque de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle, fait l'objet d'une exposition itinérante entre le Palais du Belvédère à Vienne, le musée Fabre à Montpellier et la Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung de Munich. Véritable parcours artistique international, le catalogue permet de reconsidérer l'artiste à travers l'ensemble de sa production et montre que la popularité de son style, reconnu comme le style Mucha, repose sur une maîtrise du dessin et du décor. Ce dessinateur de génie excella dans tous les domaines et tous les formats, de l’illustration de livres précieux au décor monumental, comme celui du pavillon de la Bosnie-Herzégovine réalisé pour l’Exposition universelle de 1900 à Paris. Esprit infatigable et curieux, il sut faire chanter ses gammes infinies de courbes et de volutes tant pour le mobilier que pour la joaillerie et paracheva son sens de la composition théâtrale grâce à un usage remarquable de la photographie. Il consacra la fin de sa vie à l’exécution d’oeuvres monumentales exprimant la grandeur de la nation tchèque, dont le salon du Maire à Prague et surtout l’Épopée slave en sont les plus beaux exemples. Cet ouvrage retrace le parcours artistique de Mucha en offrant, grâce aux reproductions et aux textes produits par des plus grands spécialistes, un état actuel de la question.
Alphonse Mucha: The Spirit of Art Nouveau
Alphonse Mucha (1890-1939) was one of the most important decorative artists in Paris at the turn of the century. His sensual female portraits with their elaborate borders?le style Mucha?embody the essence of Art Nouveau. The Mucha family and the Mucha Foundation have put together a touring exhibition of Mucha's work, and this is the companion volume. Though numerous works on Mucha have appeared in the past few decades, none have been as exhaustive as this illustrated group of essays by noted European experts. The full-scale treatment covers paintings, decorative panels, pastels, drawings, photographs, jewelry, and advertisements as well as numerous book and magazine illustrations. The essays elucidate Mucha's political activities in Czechoslovakia, which spawned the enormous murals "The Slav Epic"; his association with the actress Sarah Bernhardt; and the impact of American patronage on his later work. This lavish homage may prove to be the most important study of an amazing and prolific artist. Highly recommended.?Joseph C.
