Place where Nature is everywhere present, the Ecole de Nancy Museum is particularly close of the thematic of these European Heritage Days, “Cultural heritage – natural heritage”!
To go into this subject in depth, the museum invites its visitors to linger at the garden to discover the essences carefully cultivated by the service of parks and gardens of the City of Nancy, and to play at the little game of connections with the works of the museum with the help of a booklet specially published.

The horticulture and landscape School of Roville-aux-Chênes will also exhibit in the garden a selection of anemone.
And also:
Jamble sale of exhibition catalogues
Free visit of the permanent collections

Have a nice heritage week-end!

Release of the 23th issue of the coupDefouet Magazine from Barcelona

CoupDefouet is published by the Urban Landscape Institute of the Barcelona City Council, which has the common commitment to find useful and efficient mechanisms for the protection and promotion of Europe's Art Nouveau heritage.

This new release, which highlights the Hungarian architect Ödon Lechner, is especially interesting as it dedicates one article to the travelling exhibition "The Nature of Art Nouveau" organised by the RANN, which is actually presented in Bad Nauheim (until 26 October 2014) and will be soon in Barcelona (from the beginning of October until 6 January 2015), written by the curator of the exhibition, Teresa M. Sala.

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.
