The decorative plant of the Palau Güell

The Palau Güell is the palace of the details, especially floral, that was very characteristic during Modernism and that contains much Symbolism. This conference will help us to know and interpret the Palau's decoration in more depth.

Gustav Klimt

This exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of the death of Gustav Klimt, who also passed away in 1918, honors THE protagonist of Viennese Modernism par excellence, who saw the Secession as a venue for the fight for spiritual and artistic modern art. His highly contested, allegorical Faculty Paintings, which were destroyed during the last days of war in 1945, were seen as a paradigm shift and a credo of a new thematic and formal notion of the fin-de-siècle: spirit and matter, nature and art, as well as Eros and Thanatos constituted the program of his artistic oeuvre. The pictorial works of the avant-gardist Klimt further express a longing for beauty and sensuality. Along with works from the holdings of the Leopold Museum and the Leopold family’s private collection, the presentation will feature exhibits from the Klimt Foundation, works given to the museum as a permanent loan by a Klimt descendant as well as select international loans from private and institutional collections. Thus, the exhibition retraces Klimt’s artistic evolution from an exponent of late Historicism towards one of the most eminent representatives of Viennese Jugendstil. “From Sketch to Painting” – Klimt’s Last Masterpiece The Bride One of the highlights of this presentation is the room curated by Sandra Tretter (Klimt Foundation) devoted to Klimt’s Symbolist painting The Bride. The artist designed his last masterpiece on the basis of numerous drawings and studies, ranging stylistically between Jugendstil and Expressionism. The large-scale group of figures will be shown for the first time in the context of pertinent work drawings and the artist’s only extant sketchbook from 1917. This authentic document from the collection of the Klimt Foundation not only contains pencil sketches for lost Klimt paintings but illustrates in a unique manner the work process behind his unfinished painting The Bride, which was last documented for posterity by the artist’s favorite photographer Moriz Nähr within the intimate setting of Klimt’s Hietzing studio.

III coupDefouet International Congress

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it. In this third edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, the main thematic strand proposes to look into new perspectives on Art Nouveau heritage of cities by means of cinematographic language. Given the coincidence in the time of the birth of both, footage from this age is especially significant. Together with other later filmed material related to Art Nouveau, it may provide new insights into this artistic movement and a deeper knowledge of what has been preserved, as well as what was lost or forgotten. A second theme strand centres on the relationship of Art Nouveau works and artists with politics, and in particular with colonialism, while the third strand explores the importance of drug use and/or attitudes towards sex in Art Nouveau artists, and how this influenced their work. Finally, the section on research and doctoral theses in progress, in which presentations from both seasoned and young researchers are welcome, will complete the four thematic strands of the programme.

Du Square Ambiorix au Cinquantenaire : Horta du début à la fin

C’est au square Ambiorix, véritable vivier d’architecture d’Art Nouveau, que l’on trouve des pépites signées Horta, moins connues du grand public et pourtant tout aussi raffinées. Comme l’incontournable et majestueux hôtel Van Eetvelde de l’avenue Pamertson. D’une simple envie de Mr Eetvelde d’agrandir sa propriété, le bâtiment fini par être pris à bras le corps par l’architecte. Avec une audacieuse façade à sa structure métallique apparente, une verrière interne créant un puit de lumière léché de courbes sensuelles, des espaces de vie modulables...Horta prend plaisir à innover. Non-loin de là, la maison du sculpteur Pierre Braecke. Tout en gardant la patte Horta si caractéristique, l’architecte y joue la carte de la sobriété. C’est également dans ce quartier, à deux pas du Cinquantenaire que l’on peut admirer l’une des premières réalisations de Victor Horta, un pavillon néo-classique ! De quoi surprendre et de s’interroger sur l’évolution artistique de cet architecte de génie.

Pin Ups | Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity

Pin-ups: Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will be the first exhibition held at the National Galleries of Scotland devoted to the art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). Paris in the fin-de-siècle was known as the 'city of pleasure’; famed for its cabarets, dance halls and cafés. Most famous of all were the nightspots of the bohemian district of Montmartre, where Toulouse-Lautrec lived, worked and socialized, including the now legendary café-cabarets Le Moulin Rouge and Le Chat Noir. Pin-ups: Toulouse Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will focus on Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithographic posters, portfolio prints and illustrations which made stars of Montmartre’s venues and their entertainers - personalities such as Yvette Guilbert, Jane Avril and Aristide Bruant. Toulouse-Lautrec’s career coincided with a revolutionary moment in the history of western printmaking - the development of the poster as a means of mass-marketing – and lithography and poster-making were central to his creative process from his first experiments in the medium in 1891 until his death in 1901.


The 2018 autumn exhibition in the Kunstforum is devoted to “Japomanie” – the West’s passion for the aesthetics and world of images of the Far East. The exhibition traces its development, starting with the fascination for the exotic and the new and the first stirrings in the 1860s to long after the turn of the century, to its amalgamation into the form vocabulary of Western painting and the influence of its aesthetics on the development of modernism around 1900. Ever since the 1860s, the elegant and exotic aesthetics of the everyday utensils, the exquisite textiles and most of all the fantastical and richly luminous narrative ukiyo-e – the colour woodcuts – had been invading the European market and fulfilling the public’s yearning for unknown culture and a new vision of aesthetics. Artists were in the forefront, collecting and integrating the extraordinary form vocabulary of the ukiyo-e and their astonishing themes and motifs into their visual imagery. Monet, Manet, Van Gogh and Degas were the first, followed by the younger artists – Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Vuillard and Vallotton, also Marc and Kandinsky, to name only the most important. Launching out from Paris, Japomanie conquered the whole of Europe – also in Austria, after the impact of the Vienna World Fair in 1873, it triggered a genuine hype surrounding the aesthetics of the Far East, which inspired such artists as Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Subsequently the ideas from the Far East evolved into independent interpretations and realisations in a new language of forms that heralded the approaching modernism of the twentieth century – in which the trends towards abstraction, towards breaking loose from the conventional pictorial space, took their own autonomous development. The exhibition includes not only paintings and printed graphics, but also objects and furniture, juxtaposing Japanese woodcuts, screens and artefacts to European works influenced by the aesthetics of the Far East, including by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Gustav Klimt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the Nabis and the Blauer Reiter group. Around a hundred exhibits from international public and private collections present a wide-ranging overview of the phenomenon of “Japonisme” that spread throughout Europe from the late nineteenth century to the dawn of the avant-garde movements.

Bruxelles / Brussel
Des courbes de l'Art nouveau aux lignes épurées de l'Art Déco

Le Centre-ville nous mène vers les somptueux magasins Waucquez et des frères Wolfers. Aujourd’hui devenu respectueusement, le Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée et un magasin de jouet, ils sont les seuls espace-magasins à subsister. Horta aimait investir des bâtiments de différentes utilités, ainsi il a également élaboré le Jardin d'enfants n°15 de la ville de Bruxelles. Horta est un artiste fertile cherchant toujours l’innovation et le renouvellement. Après la première guerre mondiale et son voyage en Amérique, Horta se donne à un style plus dépouillé et géométrique l’Art Décoratif. L’exemple le plus représentatif de cette période de l’architecte est la façade du Bozar. Et oui, c’est bien une façade signée Horta. Plus étonnant encore, c’est lui qui élabore la bien connue Gare-Centrale de notre chère Bruxelles.
