TOWARD THE LIGHT The Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914
The anniversary exhibition to Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914 at the Mathildenhöhe (on the day exactly 100 years after this last historic Great Exhibition after the ones in 1901, 1904 and 1908 - presents with works by Albin Müller, Bernhard Hoetger, Elizabeth Duncan, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens, Emanuel Josef Margold, Arnold Mendelssohn and Heinrich Jobst the whole spectrum of creative work from architecture and painting to sculpture and applied arts to music and dance. Historical documents and works of art highlight the importance of this exhibition before the great war.
To bring alive the spirit of the Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914, the Künstlerkolonie Museum (Artists' Colony Museum) presents both paintings, sculptures, drawings, jewelry and photographs from the Municipal Art Collection of Darmstadt as well as valuable loans from public and private collections. They bear witness to the unbroken optimism of modernity, which ruled in the Darmstadt Artists' Colony until the outbreak of the First World War and which is still noticeable on the Mathildenhöhe.
Curator of the exhibition: Dr. Philipp Gutbrod, collection curator and curator, Institute Mathildenhöhe
Kenneth Clark: Looking for Civilisation
Kenneth Clark: Looking for Civilisation explores the career of Kenneth Clark (1903-1983), one of the most influential figures in the history of British art.
A patron, collector, art historian, public servant, and broadcasting impresario, Clark was the first to bring the art of the 20th century to a mass television audience.
From work by the British artists he favoured to highlights from his own eclectic collection, this exhibition of around 200 objects will include works by Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland, drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, prints by Hokusai, and paintings by Constable, Degas, Seurat and Cézanne.
Help is better than sympathy Frank Brangwyn and the First World War
At the start of the First World War, more than a million Belgian refugees fled the advancing armies, seeking sanctuary abroad. Around 250,000 made it to England – one of the largest groups of refugees in British history - and found a sympathetic welcome. Local relief committees formed all over the country, raising funds to sustain them during their time in exile.
The exhibition takes its title from a poster designed by Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) for the Belgian & Allies Aid League. “Will you help these sufferers from the war to start a new home”, it asks. “Help is better than sympathy.”
Bruges-born Brangwyn, already a well-known and successful artist before 1914, became a prolific poster-maker during the war and his designs became synonymous with First World War propaganda. Many present the horrors of the war, while others aim to recruit soldiers and vilify the enemy. One propaganda poster in particular was so violent that the German Kaiser allegedly put a price on Brangwyn’s head.
Help is better than sympathy presents some of Brangwyn’s best known posters, including ‘The Retreat from Antwerp’, alongside lesser known work. Shown together they offer an opportunity to examine Brangwyn’s attitude to the First World War, and the Belgian refugees in particular, using the Gallery’s rich collection.
Find out more about Frank Brangwyn by exploring the Frank Brangwyn theme or by browsing the collection online.
Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910
Treasures of Korea presents more than 150 works from the time of the world's longest-ruling Confucian dynasty, lasting more than 500 years. On display are many Korean national treasures that have never before been shown in the United States. This comprehensive survey is organized around five key themes that together illuminate a period that continues to influence modern manners, norms and social attitudes: the role of the king and his royal court and their taste for simplicity, expressed in porcelain objects; the strict hierarchies that defined class and gender; the production of metal and ceramic ritual implements used in ancestral worship; various religions practiced during this time, and the late influence of western civilizations.
Art Nouveau in the Netherlands
The exhibition has been organized in co-operation with the Dutch Art historian and collector Frederik Erenc.
It displays the uniqueness of the Dutch Art Nouveau with all its characteristic features such as the rationalist school, decorative Art Nouveau, the Asian influences and other movements.
Besides the exhibition, everyone is invited to join a meeting with the Dutch Art historians and collector Frederik Erenc to get more acquainted with the Dutch Art Nouveau heritage on 3 and 4 July at 4 pm!
John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
John Ruskin (1819-1900) is renowned as the greatest British art critic of the nineteenth century and the champion of Turner, but his role as an artist remains relatively little known. He was however an outstanding draughtsman and watercolour painter, who especially took inspiration from the natural world and architectural subjects. This exhibition will illustrate, with the finest examples, the range and quality of his drawn and painted work. Gothic palaces in Venice, wild and spectacular Scottish and Alpine landscapes, and minutely defined and brilliantly coloured birds and plants will all be highlights of the show. The loans will chiefly come from the key UK and US collections (both public and private), and the exhibition is a prestigious collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
It is especially fitting that John Ruskin: Artist and Observer should be showcased in Edinburgh, as Ruskin came from a Scottish family, visited Scotland many times, and was a passionate advocate for the beauty of its landscapes and literary heritage. Key episodes in his public and private life were enacted here.
A major, scholarly catalogue complementing the exhibition is to be published by the National Gallery of Canada.
John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
John Ruskin (1819—1900) is remembered as Victorian Britain’s leading art critic and as the champion of JMW Turner. But he was also an outstanding artist in his own right.
His exquisitely detailed drawings and watercolours were the result of an intense and passionate artistic impulse. This landmark exhibition, for the first time, provides a comprehensive overview of Ruskin’s extraordinary artistic output.
The exhibition has been organised by the National Galleries of Scotland and the National Gallery of Canada.

Schörfling am Attersee
The Leopold Museum’s Klimt original shown: the 1902/03 masterpiece The Large Poplar II (Gathering Storm)
For the third year running, the Gustav Klimt Center on the Attersee will be presenting an eminent original painting by Gustav Klimt (1862–1918). In its opening year in 2012, the center featured Klimt’s work On Lake Attersee (1900), dubbed a "frame full of lake water" by the art critic Ludwig Hevesi.
While Klimt’s 1899 painting A Morning by the Pond (Still Pond), chosen for the center’s 2013 presentation, shows a depiction of the Egelsee in Golling, this year’s exhibition once again focuses on an Attersee landscape, the 1902/03 masterpiece The Large Poplar II (Gathering Storm).
Like the previous two paintings, the rendering is another exclusive loan from the Leopold Museum in Vienna.
Art and cookie jar - 125 years Bahlsen
The exhibition "Art and cookie jar" is dedicated to the groundbreaking and exquisite packaging cans of the Bahlsen company from Hannover. Since the company was founded 125 years ago Bahlsen relies on exceptionally elaborate packaging, building on collaborations with eminent artists. From Historicism and Art Nouveau, Constructivism, Informal Art, Op Art and Pop Art, many art movements of the 20th century are reflected in the design of the cans. The artistically designed packaging made for a recognition effect, which is often made even the mention of the company name redundant. In the exhibition, over 250 exhibits from a large private collection as well as from the corporate archive are shown. Media: Culture Radio RBB,  Magazin Berlin.
