Exhibition And yet there was Art! at the Leopold Museum in Vienna – from 9 May to 15 September 2014


Austria 1914–1918

The assassination of the Austrian heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, on the 28th of June 1914 in Sarajevo was the fatal trigger of World War I. One hundred years on, the Leopold Museum is dedicating a comprehensive exhibition to the fate of Austrian artists (Egon Schiele, Albin Egger-Lienz, Anton Kolig, Kolo Moser, Gustav Klimt...) who were active between 1914 and 1918.

Selected works by contemporary artists from Italy, Romania, Russia and Serbia – the countries that Austria-Hungary fought on the frontlines during World War I – create a connection to the present. Presented in the exhibition are 200 works, 40 of which hail from the collection of the Leopold Museum, 30 from the Leopold Collection II and 130 from public and private Austrian and international lenders. The historical objects are complemented by contemporary art interventions.

Exhibition Toward the light at the Museum Künstlerkolonie, Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt – from 17 May to 14 September 2014


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 Historical documents and works of art highlight the importance of this exhibition before the great war.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

Exhibition Masters of Art Nouveau at the Museum of Applied Arts of Budapest in Budapest – from 24 May to 31 August 2014


The exhibition of the Art Nouveau collection of the Museum of Applied Arts, which met with success in the Musei Capitolini in Rome this spring, is on display in Budapest from 24 May, 2013.

The main emphasis of the programme 2013 of the Museum of Applied Arts is to display this internationally significant Art Nouveau collection both to the national and international public. Part of the Hungarian-Italian Cultural Year 2013 this spring the Museum of Applied Arts organised a large-scale exhibition displaying almost 100 objects in the Musei Capitolini in Rome, which exhibition can now be seen in the Üllői street building.

It represents the technological and artistic innovations of the heyday of Secessionism with outstanding artefacts from the period between the Paris Universal Exposition 1889 and the Turin Universal Exposition of Decorative Art 1911 and shows the influences among the different artistic fields and among the artists from different nationalities.
The glass and ceramic objects –masterworks of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Émile Gallé, the Daum brothers and the Zsolnay factory- which form the main part of the exhibition are enriched by jewels (René Lalique) and tapestries (József Rippl-Rónai, Otto Eckmann).

Exhibition The Bigot Pavilion – Art Nouveau Architectural Ceramics from Paris at the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest – from 26 April 2013 to 31 August 2014


In 2013, the Budapest ensemble of Alexandre Bigot’s monumental architectural ceramics can be seen for the first time since the Paris World's Fair of 1900. The ensemble was acquired with government funds by the director Jenő Radisics at the Paris Universal Exposition 1900 and has never been on display so far.

Alexander Bigot’s pavilion constructed of Art Nouveau architectural sample pieces –wall revetments, fireplace frames, columns with plastic decorations, brackets, friezes- was bought entirely by the museum and was transported to Budapest after the exposition. The objects were deposited in the huge basement of the Museum of Applied Arts.
The designers of the architectural ceramics were such outstanding French architects and sculptors of the period like Jules Lavirotte (1864-1924) or Paul Jouve (1878-1973). Similar pieces of architectural ceramics displayed at the exhibition can be found on facades of several Art Nouveau apartment buildings and palaces in Paris even today.

The present exhibition hints at the future of the museum, expressing the desire that many hidden artworks in the collection, such as these, should be displayed – something which will only be possible after the reconstruction of the building designed by Ödön Lechner.
