Stylised floral motifs and graceful birds adorned much table linen in the first quarter of the 20th century. During this period, Dutch linen weaveries invited artists to design damask patterns in this style, known as Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. Damask is often woven in a single colour, white. The subtle, delicate patterns are only revealed when the fabric is viewed from the correct angle. Chris Lebeau gained recognition at that time for his more than 60 eye-catching damask designs. The TextielMuseum made a selection from a series of beautiful damasks, woven in Art Nouveau style in the early 20th century, and presents them from 17 January in the exhibition Art Nouveau damask.
The Louis Comfort Tiffany Chronology, the Morse Museum’s authoritative timeline of Tiffany’s life, is now available on our website. It is currently as thorough a chronological listing of the basic facts of Tiffany’s personal and professional development as we know exists and will be updated as research reveals new information. Search by year, by a category of his life, or by keywords. Search “Favrile glass,” for example, to find what has been reported and recorded on Tiffany’s work in the medium for which he is best known. Entries in the chronology—which span from the birth of his grandfather in 1777 through the present day—are compiled from various sources including books, articles, contemporaneous accounts and records, as well as our own archival material.
Comprehensive new presentation of the collection of Jugendstil/Art Nouveau and Modernism in the Artists' Colony Museum (Museum Künstlerkolonie). On the basis of works of fine and applied art, as well as models and multimedia presentations the outstanding importance of artists' colony for the development of architecture, art and design since 1900 will be presented.
The exhibition highlights six chronologically important steps in the period 1898-1914, which enable the visitors to envision the wide spectrum of artistic creation of the Darmstadt Artists' Colony. Here, an emphasis is placed on the four major presentations, which took place at the Mathildenhöhe in the years 1901, 1904, 1908 and 1914. The exhibition "World concepts" covers both wings of the Artists’ Colony Museum and thus offers over 450m2 of exhibition space for around 300 art works.
The exhibition presents works of art of all 23 former Artists' Colony members, with outstanding works by Peter Behrens, Hans Christiansen and Joseph Maria Olbrich. It will also present art works from the municipal art collection of Darmstadt, which are first issued in the Artists' Colony Museum.
In addition to a bilingual audio guide (German and English) a web app for smartphones will be available for the visitors to explore the exhibition and the exhibition grounds. A specially designed children's guide will also be available from May at the Artists' Colony Museum.
Curator: Dr. Philipp Gutbrod, Director of the Institute Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt

Le musée Lalique raconte en 2015 l’histoire verrière de cette région, histoire qui a incité René Lalique à construire une manufacture à Wingen-sur-Moder en 1921. A travers des objets archéologiques, mais également des objets d’art, des tableaux, des plans… l’exposition Le verre au quotidien retrace cette épopée, s’intéressant tant à la question des techniques que des usages et rappelant comment le verre est devenu omniprésent dans notre quotidien.
