Du Square Ambiorix au Cinquantenaire : Horta du début à la fin

C’est au square Ambiorix, véritable vivier d’architecture d’Art Nouveau, que l’on trouve des pépites signées Horta, moins connues du grand public et pourtant tout aussi raffinées. Comme l’incontournable et majestueux hôtel Van Eetvelde de l’avenue Pamertson. D’une simple envie de Mr Eetvelde d’agrandir sa propriété, le bâtiment fini par être pris à bras le corps par l’architecte. Avec une audacieuse façade à sa structure métallique apparente, une verrière interne créant un puit de lumière léché de courbes sensuelles, des espaces de vie modulables...Horta prend plaisir à innover. Non-loin de là, la maison du sculpteur Pierre Braecke. Tout en gardant la patte Horta si caractéristique, l’architecte y joue la carte de la sobriété. C’est également dans ce quartier, à deux pas du Cinquantenaire que l’on peut admirer l’une des premières réalisations de Victor Horta, un pavillon néo-classique ! De quoi surprendre et de s’interroger sur l’évolution artistique de cet architecte de génie. DATE : 30/09/18 Heure : 14h00 Prix : 8€ + 2.5€ entrée Pavillon des Passions Humaines Langue : FR Durée : 2h00 RDV : Hôtel van Eetvelde, Avenue Palmerston 4-6, 1000 Bruxelles

Pin Ups | Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity

Pin-ups: Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will be the first exhibition held at the National Galleries of Scotland devoted to the art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). Paris in the fin-de-siècle was known as the 'city of pleasure’; famed for its cabarets, dance halls and cafés. Most famous of all were the nightspots of the bohemian district of Montmartre, where Toulouse-Lautrec lived, worked and socialized, including the now legendary café-cabarets Le Moulin Rouge and Le Chat Noir. Pin-ups: Toulouse Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will focus on Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithographic posters, portfolio prints and illustrations which made stars of Montmartre’s venues and their entertainers - personalities such as Yvette Guilbert, Jane Avril and Aristide Bruant. Toulouse-Lautrec’s career coincided with a revolutionary moment in the history of western printmaking - the development of the poster as a means of mass-marketing – and lithography and poster-making were central to his creative process from his first experiments in the medium in 1891 until his death in 1901.


The 2018 autumn exhibition in the Kunstforum is devoted to “Japomanie” – the West’s passion for the aesthetics and world of images of the Far East. The exhibition traces its development, starting with the fascination for the exotic and the new and the first stirrings in the 1860s to long after the turn of the century, to its amalgamation into the form vocabulary of Western painting and the influence of its aesthetics on the development of modernism around 1900. Ever since the 1860s, the elegant and exotic aesthetics of the everyday utensils, the exquisite textiles and most of all the fantastical and richly luminous narrative ukiyo-e – the colour woodcuts – had been invading the European market and fulfilling the public’s yearning for unknown culture and a new vision of aesthetics. Artists were in the forefront, collecting and integrating the extraordinary form vocabulary of the ukiyo-e and their astonishing themes and motifs into their visual imagery. Monet, Manet, Van Gogh and Degas were the first, followed by the younger artists – Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Vuillard and Vallotton, also Marc and Kandinsky, to name only the most important. Launching out from Paris, Japomanie conquered the whole of Europe – also in Austria, after the impact of the Vienna World Fair in 1873, it triggered a genuine hype surrounding the aesthetics of the Far East, which inspired such artists as Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Subsequently the ideas from the Far East evolved into independent interpretations and realisations in a new language of forms that heralded the approaching modernism of the twentieth century – in which the trends towards abstraction, towards breaking loose from the conventional pictorial space, took their own autonomous development. The exhibition includes not only paintings and printed graphics, but also objects and furniture, juxtaposing Japanese woodcuts, screens and artefacts to European works influenced by the aesthetics of the Far East, including by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Gustav Klimt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the Nabis and the Blauer Reiter group. Around a hundred exhibits from international public and private collections present a wide-ranging overview of the phenomenon of “Japonisme” that spread throughout Europe from the late nineteenth century to the dawn of the avant-garde movements.

Lieux de vie à Saint-Gilles : Horta chez lui et chez les autres

Horta aimait travailler sur des maisons, des lieux de vies, en commençant par sa propre maison et atelier. L’ensemble est un tout cohérent même si les deux parties sont des unités indépendantes. La façade exprime clairement l’opposition privé et professionnel tout en gardant une ornementation harmonieuse. Chez lui, Horta repousse les limites de son art et investit de son imagination les moindres détails.

Egon Schiele - Pathways to a Collection

2018 is the centenary of Egon Schiele’s death. Marking this occasion, the Belvedere is showing its collection of Schiele paintings with highlights including Eduard Kosmack, Façade of a House, Death and Maiden, Embrace, and Four Trees. Visitors can look forward to an outstanding presentation shedding light on the full extent of the Schiele collection once housed at the Belvedere. The exhibition places a focus on the collection’s history. Curator Kerstin Jesse will answer questions about the works’ acquisition, their subject matter, and the people they portray. Preliminary studies and sketches will also be included. The Belvedere conservation department has been researching Egon Schiele’s works and his painting techniques since 2016 and their findings will be presented in the show. The exhibition presents an opportunity to gain an insight into the artist’s working methods while also offering a fascinating glimpse of his works’ pathways into the museum’s collection. Curator: Kerstin Jesse

Klimt / Schiele Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna

See rare and fragile drawings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, offering intimate insights into their artistic relationship and differing creative processes. This extraordinary collaboration with the Albertina Museum in Vienna marks the centenary of both artists’ deaths. 1918 was a seismic year in Vienna. As the Austro-Hungarian Empire crumbled, the deaths of its two foremost artists brought about the end of an intense period of creative vitality that had blazed briefly but brilliantly across the city’s bohemian swirl. One was the radical Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt; the other the young, scandalous and prodigiously talented Egon Schiele. As a number of key drawings in this exhibition will reveal, influence travelled in both directions between these two friendly rivals. Early sketches show how Schiele, in his own words, first “went by way of Klimt,” before the expressive power and searing directness of his mature work in turn left a mark on his older colleague. Both revelled in the immediacy of drawing, an ideal medium for exploring new ideas of modernity, subjectivity and the erotic. Klimt / Schiele: Drawings is a unique opportunity to see some of the 20th century’s most important works on paper – amongst them Klimt’s sketches for his seminal Beethoven Frieze, and unflinching self-portraits by Schiele – which due to their delicacy will not see the light of day again for many years. In around 100 portraits, landscapes, nudes and erotic drawings, prepare to encounter these two icons of Modernism at their most raw and revealing. Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Albertina Museum, Vienna.

Bruxelles / Brussel
Des courbes de l'Art nouveau aux lignes épurées de l'Art Déco

Le Centre-ville nous mène vers les somptueux magasins Waucquez et des frères Wolfers. Aujourd’hui devenu respectueusement, le Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée et un magasin de jouet, ils sont les seuls espace-magasins à subsister. Horta aimait investir des bâtiments de différentes utilités, ainsi il a également élaboré le Jardin d'enfants n°15 de la ville de Bruxelles. Horta est un artiste fertile cherchant toujours l’innovation et le renouvellement. Après la première guerre mondiale et son voyage en Amérique, Horta se donne à un style plus dépouillé et géométrique l’Art Décoratif. L’exemple le plus représentatif de cette période de l’architecte est la façade du Bozar. Et oui, c’est bien une façade signée Horta. Plus étonnant encore, c’est lui qui élabore la bien connue Gare-Centrale de notre chère Bruxelles.  DATE : 25/11/18 Heure : 14h00 Prix : 8€ Langue : FR Durée : 2h00 RDV : Palais de Beaux-Arts, BOZAR Rue Ravenstein 23, 1000 Bruxelles
