"The Brilliance of an Era - Art Nouveau jewelry from Europe", at the Mathildenhöhe  - 21 August to 11 December 2011

This exhibition, already shown at the Leopold Museum until 25 July 2011, is to present exquisite objects from the Hessian State Museum in Darmstadt as well as from private collections. The holdings of the Hessian State Museum are based on the Arts-and-Crafts collection of the Dutch court jeweller Karel A. Citroen (*1922). Citroen began collecting in 1952, at a point in time when it was not at all fashionable to collect artisan craftwork from the Art Nouveau. By 1959, the Amsterdam-based jeweller had succeeded in bringing together several hundred objects from all over Europe, with the main focus being on jewellery.

Serov, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec...- , the exhibition approaches different aspects of the portrait in order to reflect the transition from an initial state of mind, triumphant and self-confident in the early years, to the acute critical anxiety of the Expressionist portraits of the last ones, which close the itinerary of our show.

New post-graduate on Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow is offering a new post-graduate taught-degree at MA level entitled "Mackintosh, Glasgow and International Art Nouveau". This degree explores how at the turn of the last century, Glasgow artists, architects and designers actively participated in the articulation of a modern style across Europe that has since become known as International Art Nouveau. It introduces Scotland's key players in these debates such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Four but frames their contributions within a distinctly cross-continental context that takes into account key Art Nouveau centres such as Brussels, Paris, Vienna, Barcelona, Budapest, Munich, Riga etc. As Britain's only Art Nouveau city, Glasgow offers unparalleled resources for work placement opportunities and collections-based research in areas that are both local and international in orientation. Enrolment for commencement in September 2011 is now open. For more information please consult the History of Art webpage at


"Hotel Aubecq. Victor Horta" at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts - 1 July to 3 October 2011

Following the reconstitution of the Hôtel Aubecq facade, this free exhibition tracing the history of this masterpiece of architectural heritage of Brussels and bringing together some of his furniture, will be hosted by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts from July 1 to October 9, 2011. Visitors will also have the opportunity to appreciate the architectural quality of the facade, through organized visits to the warehouse where it is reconstituted. It is flat reconstructed, they can admire the work of stone, metalwork and woodwork like never before. 
With the Hôtel Aubecq, named after its industrialist sponsor Octave Aubecq, Victor Horta, a pioneer of Art Nouveau in Belgium, produces about 1900 one of his masterpieces. Built on the prestigious Avenue Louise, this exceptional achievement combined the original plan by the shape of its parts and luxury. A real urban palace, the Hôtel Aubecq that took more than three years of work - if we count the interior furnishings made to measure, was the pride of Victor Horta. 
The work of Victor Horta in Brussels marked a major imprint, which is why, as part of this anniversary, several cultural events will be undertaken throughout the year in Brussels around the personality of Victor Horta and his work. Photo : © Arch.Victor Horta-SOFAM Belgique.

A monument dedicated to Gustav Mahler was erected in Ljubljana

Mahler spent one year in Ljubljana at the beginning of his musical career (1881-82) as the conductor of the Philharmonic orchestra. The monument was given the name “The Poem of the Earth” by the sculptor Bojan Kunaver, great admirer of Mahler. The great master is represented with a strange instrument in his hand, in reference to his last unfinished 10th symphony.Ljubljana dedicated the whole year 2011 to his memory and closed it with a big concert of Mahler’s Symphony of thousands (1906). It was performed by 1200 musicians from Slovenia and Croatia (21 choirs, solo singers, two philharmonic orchestra on the stage) on the renewed Congress square, which was supposedly the biggest concert in 2011 in Europe. The concert celebrated 20 years of independence of Slovenia and opened the summer festival of Ljubljana .
