The Divine Marchesa - Art and life of Luisa Casati from the Belle Époque to the roaring twenties
Dates:03/10/2014-08/03/2015

Venice evokes the figure of the woman and the myth that fascinated d'Annunzio and his follies became the muse of the greatest artists of the time as Boldini, Bakst, by Marinetti in Balla, from Man Ray to Alberto Martini, Van Dongen Romain and Brooks.

Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, one of the "places" most loved by the Divine Marchesa, will be the site of the first extraordinary exhibition dedicated to Luisa Casati Stampa, the woman who in the early twentieth century, with the exaggerated makeup, the transgressive and eccentric performance and life over the top, he was able to transform itself into a work of art, a living legend, disturbing and surprising representation of modernity and avant-garde.

The exhibition, conceived by Daniela Ferretti, edited by Fabio Benzi and Gioia Mori, is co-produced by the Civic Museums Foundation of Venice and 24 ORE Cultura - Gruppo 24 Ore, has over one hundred works, including paintings, drawings, jewelry, sculptures, photographs and clothes from private collections and international museums.

The extraordinary collection of art works and portraits that were devoted to her or commissioned pieces will be on display in the exhibition come from private collections, such as the head of polychrome ceramic work of Renato Bertelli, The Marchesa Casati Romain and Brooks and sculpture by Paolo Troubetzkoy portrait of the Marchesa Casati with a greyhound. He subsequently joined by masterpieces from museums around the world such as Portrait of the Marchesa Casati by Giovanni Boldini GNAM of Rome, Marchesa Casati by Augustus Edwin John the Art Gallery of Ontario, the many portraits which he dedicated Alberto Martini, Lines of force landscape maiolicato of Giacomo Balla and jewelry by Cartier inspired her.

To note is the many photographs of Luisa Casati Stampa: from the shots of Gayne Adolphe de Meyer, Man Ray and Mariano Fortuny, to those stolen, when he lived in poverty in London, Cecil Beaton.

The exhibition, through constant references, reconstructs the social and artistic life of the crossed Luisa Casati Stampa: the gilded cage of high society encounter with Gabriele d'Annunzio - that forever changed and became a bond of love and friendship that lasted a lifetime - from the extravagant costumes, the practice of the occult period to arrive at the "futurist" Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in which he meets and marries the cause of the artistic movement, promoting artists and collecting their works , ending with economic ruin and exile in the British capital where he died in July 1957.

Three floors of Palazzo Fortuny "immerse" the visitor into the atmosphere in which he lived the Divine Marchesa that, for half a century, he was a living legend, a dark lady, a major art collector and patron, muse of the Symbolists, the Fauves, Futurists and surrealists: a myth that still inspires artists today and the great house of haute couture.

Revival and Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment
Dates:21/10/2014-21/10/2015

The Arts window by J. & R. Lamb Studios is the centerpiece of this major new exhibition that illustrates the rich diversity of styles that made up the aesthetic environment of the late 19th century in both Europe and America. Lamb Studios, a prominent American glasshouse of the era, exhibited the 1894 neoclassical window widely. In preparation for its debut at the Morse, the window, more than eight feet in diameter, underwent extensive conservation. The installation features 20 additional leaded-glass windows and selections of art glass, pottery, and furniture, a number of which also have never been exhibited. Other windows on view—some avant-garde, others reviving the past—include examples by Tiffany Studios, John LaFarge, Frank Lloyd Wright, Edward Burne-Jones, Donald MacDonald, and Heaton, Butler & Bayne.

Dates:19/11/2014-31/05/2015

In 2014 the Museum commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Paris
Viollet-le-Duc - Les Visions d'un architecte
Dates:20/11/2014-09/03/2015

À l’occasion du 200e anniversaire de la naissance d’Eugène Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879), cette exposition rétrospective présente l’œuvre singulière de ce grand architecte, théoricien et restaurateur, fondateur du musée de Sculpture comparée dont le musée des Monuments français est l’héritier.

Eugène Viollet-le-Duc est l’un des rares architectes du XIXe siècle dont la mort n’ait pas éteint la célébrité mais l’ait au contraire affirmée.

Malgré des polémiques, ses travaux de restauration et son œuvre font toujours référence pour les professionnels de l’architecture et son génie a marqué l’histoire de l’art et de l’architecture du Moyen Âge. Longtemps, les historiens se sont attachés à mettre en perspective sa science archéologique, sa doctrine en matière de restauration et son activité au service du patrimoine. À partir des années 1970, les idées qu’il avait exprimées en matière de création architecturale furent à leur tour objet d’étude et de controverses.

Aujourd’hui, trente ans après la dernière exposition monographique qui lui fut consacrée à Paris, ce sont les aspects les moins connus et les plus inattendus de cet artiste aux talents multiples qui sont présentés au public, pour témoigner de la richesse et de la complexité de sa personnalité. On connaît le caractère rationnel de sa démarche : il est question ici de souligner son côté visionnaire. Il s’agit, en d’autres termes, d’illustrer l’intimité qui existe entre le système positiviste qu’il incarne et ses délires romantiques, sources mêmes de son génie. Surgit peu à peu une personnalité étrange et complexe, hyperactive et féconde, mobilisant un savoir encyclopédique au service d’un projet politique tout autant qu’esthétique.

Une figure majeure du XIXe siècle français.

Oxford
Love is Enough: William Morris & Andy Warhol
Dates:06/12/2014-08/03/2015

Curated by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, this major exhibition brings together rarely seen works by William Morris and Andy Warhol.

Love is Enough will examine the prolific careers of these two figures, each of whom developed an artistic practice and a conceptual framework that helped to define the centuries in which they lived. The exhibition draws together works from public and private collections across the UK and the USA. They include the epic and rarely seen Holy Grail tapestries completed by Morris in 1896, a selection of Warhol’s iconic silkscreens and archival material from the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, including a signed photograph of Shirley Temple posted to a thirteen-year old Andy from the actress in 1941.

Boston
Visiting Masterpiece Gustav Klimt’s "Adam and Eve"
Dates:17/01/2015-27/04/2015

For the first time in its history, the MFA will exhibit a painting by Gustav Klimt—among the most important artists of the early 20th century.

Adam and Eve (1917–18) will be on loan from the Belvedere Museum in Vienna as part of the MFA’s Visiting Masterpiece series, giving visitors a taste of the artist’s signature style, including his sensuous approach to the nude, his bold experiments with pattern, color, and finish, and his exploration of human consciousness and desire. The work will be juxtaposed with the MFA’s life-sized study of a nude couple, Two Nudes (Lovers) (1913), painted by Klimt’s Viennese friend and colleague, Oskar Kokoschka. No more than five years separate the two paintings, which share many features—ambitious scale, daring experiments with form and finish, and, above all, a fascination with sexuality. Each is, in its own way, a product of Freud’s Vienna, but also of a singular artist with a singular vision.

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish writer and poet who became one of London’s most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Wilde’s retelling of the beheading of John the Baptist became the controversial play, Salomé, and was banned on the London stage in 1893. Illustrators have been attracted to its rhythmic prose and subject matter ever since.

In this exhibit, the Museum debuts a selection from Harry C. Sigman’s 2014 gift of 86 objects to the Morse.

The donation includes art glass, pottery, metalwork, and furniture. Though comprised mainly of Jeannette and Hugh McKean’s massive gift, the Morse collection has always been supported by generous individuals such as Harry Sigman whose contributions have helped it to grow in important ways. The finely crafted objects on view can be appreciated both individually and in the context of the Museum’s entire collection.

Paris
Au temps de Klimt
Dates:12/02/2015-21/06/2015

La Pinacothèque consacre une exposition à Gustav Klimt du 12 février au 21 juin 2015. Grand représentant de l'Art nouveau à Vienne, Klimt est l'un des pères de la Sécession viennoise : la Pinacothèque revient sur sa carrière en 180 œuvres !

L'exposition Au temps de Klimt, la Sécession à Vienne revient sur le développement de l'art viennois de la fin du XIXe siècle : un renouveau s'opère alors dans les arts à Vienne, grâce à l'Union des Artistes Figuratifs qui veulent offrir à "l'art autrichien une reconnaissance internationale à laquelle il aspire".

L'émancipation artistique de Klimt se fait en 1898, avec le célèbre tableau "Pallas Athenee", utilisé comme affiche pour la première exposition de la Sécession la même année. Gustav Klimt sera critiqué pour son œuvre jugée érotique, à cause de l'utilisation de formes phalliques dans la représentation de femmes fatales.

Si l'exposition se concentre sur l'oeuvre de Klimt, elle présente aussi les travaux qui ont inspiré son œuvre, ceux de Max Kurzwell, Théodor Hörmann ou bien Carl Schuch, ainsi que les grands chefs d'oeuvre de la Sécession et de l'avant-garde autrichienne.

Paris
In the time of Klimt - The Vienna Secession
Dates:12/02/2015-21/06/2015

The Pinacothèque de Paris, in partnership with Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura, wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt's part in the emerging of that movement is a major one. The artist's talent and brio, from his precocious start to his excessive decorative effects, where gildings and the emerging expressionism are dominant, are the foundations of a new period, which flowered in Vienna at the turn of the century. That artistic movement is, in fact, at the origin of the birth, a few years later, of one of the major currents in modern art, Expressionism, which was the theme of an exhibition in the museum in 2011.

The exhibition shows over 180 works taken from the collections of the Belvedere museum in Vienna, as well as from private collections. The curatorship of the exhibition is ensured by Alfred Weidinger, curator of the Belvedere museum in Vienna.
