May Morris: Art & Life is the most comprehensive survey of May Morris’s work to date, bringing together over 80 works from collections around the UK, many of which have never been on public display.

The exhibition reveals the breadth of May's creative pursuits, featuring wallpaper and embroidery alongside jewellery, dresses and book designs, as well as sketches and watercolours. It focuses on May’s development of art embroidery – elevating needlework from a domestic craft to a serious art form – and highlights the extent of her influence in the UK and abroad, particularly the US.

A number of rarely seen works from public and private collections are featured in the exhibition, including a pair of expansive silk hangings, which May designed and embroidered in 1895 under the auspices of Morris & Co. The Spring and Summer, and Autumn and Winter panels are thought to have been commissioned for £150 making them most expensive entry in the Morris & Co. order book for that period, and a highlight of the exhibition.

Also on display for the first time is a hand painted Valentine card made by May for George Bernard Shaw in 1886, which was recently discovered among an uncatalogued album of cards sent to Shaw in the British Library's collection. May and Shaw were in love though he maintained he was too poor to marry her. He would later insist that a "Mystic Betrothal" had existed between them, yet this did not prevent him from establishing close relationships with other women at the same time. Despite being emotionally rebuffed, May recovered and the pair remained good friends.

Rouen
Le pouvoir de la ligne, Guimard et l'Art nouveau
Dates:24/11/2017-20/05/2018

Pour sa sixième édition du Temps des Collections, la Réunion des Musées Métropolitains accueillera les pièces maîtresses de la collection d’art décoratif du Musée d’Orsay dans 8 des musées de la métropole Rouen Normandie. Une exposition autour de la ferronnerie Art Nouveau et de l’architecte Hector Guimard sera à l'honneur au musée Le Secq des Tournelles. Parmi les chefs-d’œuvre de Guimard, il faut mentionner le bloc d'immeubles Castel Béranger (1894-1898), qui obtint en 1899 le prix de la plus belle façade de Paris, ainsi que les édicules d'entrée du métro parisien (18991904), qui immortalisèrent son esthétique. Il s'illustra comme créateur mais également comme un véritable entrepreneur, par les liens qu'il sut nouer avec les industriels pour diffuser ses modèles, en particulier avec les Fonderies de Saint-Dizier, dont plusieurs pièces sont présentées dans l'exposition : « Satisfaire au programme de chacun, utiliser les ressources industrielles modernes, profiter des progrès de la science appliquée à toutes les branches de l'activité humaine, exprimer le caractère véritable de la matière, tels sont les principes auxquels se rattache le Style Guimard et qui se résument en trois mots : Logique, Harmonie et Sentiment ». Afin de compléter cette évocation de la ferronnerie Art Nouveau, la sélection des œuvres est enrichie de créations d'autres artistes, en particulier du Belge Gustave Serrurier-Bovy (1858-1910), ainsi que de plusieurs pièces spectaculaires issues de la collection du célèbre antiquaire Antonin Rispal (1920-2003).

Edinburgh
A New Era: Scottish Modern Art 1900-1950
Dates:04/12/2017-10/06/2018

The exhibition examines the most progressive work made by Scottish artists as they absorbed and responded to the great movements of European modern art. More than 100 paintings, sculptures and works on paper by over 50 artists are on display. The exhibition charts Scottish modernism from when JD Fergusson and SJ Peploe experienced at first-hand the radical new work produced in Paris by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, to the turn of the 1950s, when emerging Scottish artists like Alan Davie, Doris Zinkeisen, William Gear, Margaret Mellis, and Eduardo Paolozzi were at the forefront of European contemporary art.

The exhibition is named after the New Era group established in Edinburgh in 1939 to show the experimental work of its members. As a compliment to A New Era, Magazines and Manifestos: British Periodicals from 1890 to 1950 is a display in the Keiller Library which explores the proliferation of ‘little magazines’ which became a preferred format for many literary and artistic groups, whose proponents were keen to spread the word and disseminate their new and often radical ideas to a wider public.

Madrid
Alphonse Mucha Retrospective
Dates:12/10/2017-25/02/2018

The show is conceived as a comprehensive survey consisting of over 200 pieces, organised and produced by Arthemisia in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation, and conceived by Tomoko Sato, curator of the foundation since 2007. The exhibition highlights six facets of Mucha’s personality: Bohemian; picture maker for people; cosmopolitan; mystic; patriot and philosopher. Through these aspects, the exhibition looks at the development of his artistic career and how he grew as a man, living through one of the most turbulent times in European history. The large number of works on show includes paintings like Self-portrait (1899,) posters like the one created for Gismonda (1894) and another featuring Sarah Bernhardt as La Princesse Lointaine (1896), as well as “France Embracing Bohemia“, in 2018, when this exhibition ends, is the 100th Anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia and the painting of this work. The painting shows the spirit of freedom embodied in the figure of France giving the kiss of Freedom to the figure of Bohemia, which has been suffering under the oppression of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The wide-ranging selection was enabled by the Mucha Foundation, an institution that has been working for years to advance a better understanding of the artist worldwide. This one-artist show in Madrid is able to reconstruct the full breadth and depth of Mucha’s artistic practice thanks to loans from the foundation. The show features key elements from the artist’s life and work—his Czech and Slavic cultural identity and the love he felt for his family and his land of birth. Images of beguiling women immortalised by his effortless brushwork are combined with innovative maquettes and typographic designs to showcase the extreme originality of Alphonse Mucha’s oeuvre. Overall, the exhibition affords an extraordinary portrait of this great Czech creator, celebrated in Art History as the originator of a style that would later spread throughout the world under the name of Art Nouveau, Stile Liberty, Secessionsstil, Modernisme or Jugendstil.

Arts & Crafts,1860-1914 : les formes d'une utopie
Dates:24/11/2017-20/05/2018

La Réunion des Musées Métropolitains organise du 24 novembre 2017 au 20 mai 2018 la sixième édition du Temps des Collections. Ce programme lancé en 2012 au musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen est l’une des toutes premières initiatives en France pour remettre les collections au cœur de la programmation des musées. Il s’agit à chaque fois de révéler la richesse et à la variété des collections publiques, de dévoiler l’envers du décor et le mystère des réserves, de favoriser les redécouvertes en ouvrant les musées à de nouveaux regards. De nombreux invités se sont succédés, conservateurs, historiens, artistes, personnalités du monde de la culture, ou plus récemment le public avec la Chambre des visiteurs. Le musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen expose pour cette nouvelle édition un ensemble exceptionnel de chefs-d'oeuvre du mouvement esthétique des Arts & Crafts prêté par le musée d'Orsay et complété par des objets venus du Bois des Moutiers à Varengeville. Apparu dans l’Angleterre victorienne, le mouvement Arts & Crafts a révolutionné l’univers des arts décoratifs dans la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle. Né en réaction aux conséquences de la révolution industrielle et à l’envahissement du cadre de vie par des produits standardisés conçus sans souci de la beauté, ce mouvement a pour but de produire de la beauté à l’usage de toutes les couches de la société et défend une éthique du travail manuel qui se propose de garantir le bonheur du créateur et de l’ouvrier, tout en satisfaisant l’aspiration à la beauté des usagers de toutes conditions.

Wien
Beyond Klimt : New Horizons in Central Europe
Dates:23/03/2018-26/08/2018

Gustav Klimt is probably the artist most associated with Austrian art. His death in 1918 – the same year as the deaths of Egon Schiele, Koloman Moser, and Otto Wagner – is seen as the end of an era. However, their influence on the art world had waned even before this. Only peripherally affected by the political turmoil, a vibrant art scene developed in the countries of the Austro-Hungarian Empire with artists striving for change. The exhibition at the Lower Belvedere will guide you through this post-Klimt era. The interwar years are characterized by the wish for international connections that transcended new political and ideological boundaries. There was a vibrant exchange of ideas between artists resulting in constructivist, expressionist, and fantastical trends. Cosmopolitan networks emerged among the artists of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire while art magazines made an increasingly important contribution to disseminating these new ideas. The outbreak of the Second World War brought this internationalism to an abrupt end and the sense of a shared culture faded, once again, into the background. The exhibition seeks to reveal the parallels during this period and demonstrate continuity and change in the art of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and its successor nation states. Featuring works by around eighty artists including Josef Capek, Friedl Dicker-Brandeis, Albin Egger-Lienz, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Koloman Moser, Antonin Prochaska, Egon Schiele, Lajos Tihanyi, and many more. Curator: Alexander Klee

Glasgow
Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Making the Glasgow Style
Dates:30/03/2018-14/08/2018

2018 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of celebrated Glasgow architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928). Glasgow Museums is delighted to celebrate this significant anniversary with a major new temporary exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This exhibition will be one of the key events in the city-wide Mackintosh 2018 programme. The exhibition will span the lifetime of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) and taking a chronological and thematic narrative, placing Mackintosh at the core of the story, it will present his work in the context of Glasgow, his key predecessors, influences and contemporaries, particularly those working in the Glasgow Style. ‘The Glasgow Style’ is the popular term given to the design and decorative arts centred around the work by teachers, students and graduates of The Glasgow School of Art produced between about 1890 and 1920. At the core of this style is the work of The Four: Charles Rennie Mackintosh, his future wife Margaret Macdonald, her younger sister Frances Macdonald and Frances’s future husband, James Herbert McNair. Glasgow was the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ‘movement’ in the UK and its style made ripples internationally. This exhibition will present the very best of Glasgow’s internationally important civic collections, drawing from both those of Glasgow Museums and The Mitchell Library and Archives. A number of these civic works have never previously been on public display, and the majority has not been shown in Glasgow for 30 or more years. The exhibition will also include important loans from private and public collections. About 250 objects will be on display across the full spectrum of media, including stained glass, ceramics, mosaic, metalwork, furniture, stencilling, embroidery, graphics, books, interiors and architecture. The act of making will be communicated across this breadth of media – both through the exhibition and the accompanying event programme – to truly engage and inspire audiences of all ages to visit the other Mackintosh-related buildings and collections in and around Glasgow, and to make and create.

DECADES OF FINNISH ARCHITECTURE 1900–1970
Dates:27/03/2010-31/12/2020
The exhibition explores the history of building in the 20th century against a background of Finnish society, taking into account economic, political and technological developments.

Egon Schiele - Pathways to a Collection
Dates:19/10/2018-17/02/2019

2018 is the centenary of Egon Schiele’s death. Marking this occasion, the Belvedere is showing its collection of Schiele paintings with highlights including Eduard Kosmack, Façade of a House, Death and Maiden, Embrace, and Four Trees. Visitors can look forward to an outstanding presentation shedding light on the full extent of the Schiele collection once housed at the Belvedere. The exhibition places a focus on the collection’s history. Curator Kerstin Jesse will answer questions about the works’ acquisition, their subject matter, and the people they portray. Preliminary studies and sketches will also be included. The Belvedere conservation department has been researching Egon Schiele’s works and his painting techniques since 2016 and their findings will be presented in the show. The exhibition presents an opportunity to gain an insight into the artist’s working methods while also offering a fascinating glimpse of his works’ pathways into the museum’s collection. Curator: Kerstin Jesse

Wien
Egon Schiele: The Jubilee Show
Dates:23/02/2018-04/11/2018

n 2018, 100 years after his death, a special exhibition is dedicated to the central artist of the Leopold Museum’s collection, Egon Schiele (1890–1918): unique in its combination of paintings, works on paper and archival material, the exhibition touches upon the most important themes in the artist’s oeuvre: first of all, his self-confident breaking with traditions and his evolution as an expressive artist, followed by motivic groups including the ambivalent figure of the mother and the taboo-breaking depictions of young girls and boys, themes such as spirituality and metamorphosis, his enigmatic houses and landscapes, as well as his tension-filled and complex analyses in his portrait depictions. The emphases of the exhibition are derived from those of the history-making Leopold collections: in terms of the oil paintings and works on paper, the emphasis is on the Expressionist years from 1910–1914, with a third of the works on paper each dedicated to his self-portraits, his portraits and nude renderings of girls and finally those of grown-up women. The paintings, meanwhile, touch upon all the themes mentioned above. Along with the comprehensive museum collection, whose works on paper will be shown in three separate stages for conservational reasons, individual eminent Schiele works from international collections will feature in the jubilee exhibition as “noble guests”.

Rouen
Émile Gallé, alchimiste de la terre et du verre
Dates:24/11/2017-20/05/2018

Pour sa sixième édition du Temps des Collections, la Réunion des Musées Métropolitains accueillera les pièces maîtresses de la collection d’art décoratif du Musée d’Orsay dans 8 des musées de la métropole Rouen Normandie. Le musée de la Céramique s’attachera particulièrement à présenter les innovations développées par Émile Gallé à travers l’exposition dossier consacrée à cette figure de l’Art nouveau. À travers une sélection d'une quarantaine de faïences, verres et œuvres graphiques, l'exposition s'attache au processus créatif d'Émile Gallé depuis ses premières réalisations dans le cadre de l'entreprise familiale, jusqu'à ses chefs-d’œuvre de verre, en explorant notamment sa richesse d'inspiration (nature, littérature et poésie, japonisme, histoire), son inventivité formelle et ses innovations techniques. Un intérêt particulier est accordé à ses faïences, une production moins connue mais portant en germe les prémices de ses grandes créations. C’est probablement dans l’œuvre céramique de Gallé qu’il est le plus aisé de discerner ses évolutions esthétiques et l’élaboration de son style personnel, sa fascination pour la nature et principalement son attrait pour la botanique constituent désormais sa principale source d’inspiration, qui l’absorbera jusqu’à ses derniers travaux.
