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

100 Master Drawings from the Leopold Collection
The collection of the Leopold Museum Private Foundation comprises approximately 5.400 works. 3.400 of these are works on paper, predominantly watercolors and drawings. Already in 2010 the Leopold Museum showed a representative selection of the Leopold Collection’s best watercolors in the presentation »Hidden Treasures«. The present exhibition »Line and Shape« unites 100 eminent examples of masterful draftsmanship of the 19th and 20th centuries. The exhibition affords interesting insights into the abundant compilation of drawings acquired by Rudolf Leopold during his 40 years of collecting art and features works by some of the best draftsmen of the 20th century, including Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and Alfred Kubin. The number and extraordinary quality of these works from the Leopold Collection is unrivalled by most other museums.

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.

Open house at the Otto Wagner Hofpavillon Hietzing in Vienna– on 21 to 22 June 2014
At the Hietzing subway station stands “Pavillon des k.u.k. Allerhöchsten Hofes” (“Pavillon of the k.u.k. of the highest Court”) designed by Otto Wagner and opened in 1899. He served to the emperor and his guests and members of the court as entry and exit point when they travelled once with the Wiener Stadtbahn.
The central space of the Hofpavillon, the waiting room of the Emperor, contained a table and chairs in front of a view of Vienna by Carl Moll. Here was also a desk so that the Emperor was able to work during the waiting period. And it was possible to send telegrams from the loggia.
Due to disrepair, the site of the Vienna Museum had to be closed for a few years. Thanks to an extensive renovation by the construction and building management of the City of Vienna (MA 34) the architectural jewel is once again open to the public.
Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22 from 10 am to 18 pm
Free admission on both days!
Thereafter, the Pavilion will be open every Saturday and Sunday 10-18 clock.
