Hans Christiansen is one of the most important representatives of Jugendstil, especially with his drafts in the field of arts and crafts. In Paris where matured into an artist, he was appointed in 1899 by Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig in Darmstadt, where he was among the first seven members of the artists' colony. On the Mathildenhöhe he blossomed and excelled as a genuine work of art enthusiasts in painting, architecture and applied art as well as a designer of lights festivals. For the first time the full range of this versatile artist is presented: The retrospective presents his house on the Mathildenhöhe, room facilities, glass pane, jewellery, posters, paintings, drawings, textile art and ceramics in different spatial ensembles - including previously unknown like his fashion and poster designs from the 1920s.

New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture, including the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries
Dates:08/12/2007-31/12/2020

The New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture are reopening with renovated rooms and 8,000 square feet of additional gallery space—the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries—to showcase works from 1800 through the early twentieth century. The renovated galleries feature all of the Museum's most loved nineteenth-century paintings, which have been on permanent display in the past, as well as works by Bonnard, Vuillard, Soutine, Matisse, Picasso, and other early modern artists. Among the many additions are a full-room assembly of "The Wisteria Dining Room," a French art nouveau interior designed by Lucien Levy Dhurmer shortly before World War I that is the only complete example of its kind in the United States; Henry Lerolle's enormous The Organ Rehearsal (a church interior of 1885); a group of newly accessioned nineteenth-century landscape oil sketches; and a selection of rarely exhibited paintings by an international group of artists.

The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters
Dates:26/07/2014-01/03/2015
A preeminent artist of Belle Époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) brought the language of the late-19th-century avant-garde to a broad public through his famous posters, prints, and illustrations for journals and magazines. A cultural nexus, he connected artists, performers, authors, intellectuals, and society figures of his day, creating a bridge between the brothels and society salons of the moment. His work allows entry into many facets of Parisian life, from politics to visual culture and the rise of popular entertainment in the form of cabarets and café-concerts. This exhibition, drawn almost exclusively from The Museum of Modern Art’s stellar collection of posters, lithographs, printed ephemera, and illustrated books, is the first MoMA exhibition in 30 years dedicated solely to Lautrec, and features over 100 examples of the best-known works created during the apex of his career. Organized thematically, the exhibition explores five subjects that together create a portrait of Lautrec’s Paris. A section devoted to café-concerts and dance halls examines the rise of nightlife culture in France through the depiction of famous venues, including the celebrated Moulin Rouge. Another focuses on the actresses, singers, dancers, and performers who sparked the artist’s imagination and served as his muses, including Yvette Guilbert, acclaimed dancer Loie Fuller, and close friend Jane Avril. Lautrec’s sympathetic images of women are evident in a group of works that includes his landmark Elles portfolio, depicting prostitutes during nonworking hours, in quiet moments of introspection. Lautrec’s role in Paris’s artistic community is explored in a section devoted to his creative circle, highlighting designs for song sheets for the popular music that flooded Paris’s café-concerts, programs for the avant-garde theatrical productions that he attended, and his contributions to magazines and intellectual reviews. A final section looks at the pleasures of the capital, from horse racing at Longchamp and promenading on the Bois de Boulogne, to the new fad for ice skating and the enduring appeal of Paris’s culture of gastronomy. The accompanying publication highlights the Museum’s collection of prints and posters by Lautrec, with an introductory essay on the artist and five illustrated thematic sections that explore belle époque Paris as seen through Lautrec’s eyes, by Sarah Suzuki. Organized by Sarah Suzuki, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA. The exhibition is supported by the MoMA Annual Exhibition Fund. Paint and wallpaper provided by Farrow & Ball.

Love is Enough: William Morris & Andy Warhol
Dates:06/12/2014-08/03/2015

Curated by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, this major exhibition brings together rarely seen works by William Morris and Andy Warhol.

Love is Enough will examine the prolific careers of these two figures, each of whom developed an artistic practice and a conceptual framework that helped to define the centuries in which they lived. The exhibition draws together works from public and private collections across the UK and the USA. They include the epic and rarely seen Holy Grail tapestries completed by Morris in 1896, a selection of Warhol’s iconic silkscreens and archival material from the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, including a signed photograph of Shirley Temple posted to a thirteen-year old Andy from the actress in 1941.

Viollet-le-Duc - Les Visions d'un architecte
Dates:20/11/2014-09/03/2015

À l’occasion du 200e anniversaire de la naissance d’Eugène Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879), cette exposition rétrospective présente l’œuvre singulière de ce grand architecte, théoricien et restaurateur, fondateur du musée de Sculpture comparée dont le musée des Monuments français est l’héritier.

Eugène Viollet-le-Duc est l’un des rares architectes du XIXe siècle dont la mort n’ait pas éteint la célébrité mais l’ait au contraire affirmée.

Malgré des polémiques, ses travaux de restauration et son œuvre font toujours référence pour les professionnels de l’architecture et son génie a marqué l’histoire de l’art et de l’architecture du Moyen Âge. Longtemps, les historiens se sont attachés à mettre en perspective sa science archéologique, sa doctrine en matière de restauration et son activité au service du patrimoine. À partir des années 1970, les idées qu’il avait exprimées en matière de création architecturale furent à leur tour objet d’étude et de controverses.

Aujourd’hui, trente ans après la dernière exposition monographique qui lui fut consacrée à Paris, ce sont les aspects les moins connus et les plus inattendus de cet artiste aux talents multiples qui sont présentés au public, pour témoigner de la richesse et de la complexité de sa personnalité. On connaît le caractère rationnel de sa démarche : il est question ici de souligner son côté visionnaire. Il s’agit, en d’autres termes, d’illustrer l’intimité qui existe entre le système positiviste qu’il incarne et ses délires romantiques, sources mêmes de son génie. Surgit peu à peu une personnalité étrange et complexe, hyperactive et féconde, mobilisant un savoir encyclopédique au service d’un projet politique tout autant qu’esthétique.

Une figure majeure du XIXe siècle français.

Paris
Au temps de Klimt
Dates:12/02/2015-21/06/2015

La Pinacothèque consacre une exposition à Gustav Klimt du 12 février au 21 juin 2015. Grand représentant de l'Art nouveau à Vienne, Klimt est l'un des pères de la Sécession viennoise : la Pinacothèque revient sur sa carrière en 180 œuvres !

L'exposition Au temps de Klimt, la Sécession à Vienne revient sur le développement de l'art viennois de la fin du XIXe siècle : un renouveau s'opère alors dans les arts à Vienne, grâce à l'Union des Artistes Figuratifs qui veulent offrir à "l'art autrichien une reconnaissance internationale à laquelle il aspire".

L'émancipation artistique de Klimt se fait en 1898, avec le célèbre tableau "Pallas Athenee", utilisé comme affiche pour la première exposition de la Sécession la même année. Gustav Klimt sera critiqué pour son œuvre jugée érotique, à cause de l'utilisation de formes phalliques dans la représentation de femmes fatales.

Si l'exposition se concentre sur l'oeuvre de Klimt, elle présente aussi les travaux qui ont inspiré son œuvre, ceux de Max Kurzwell, Théodor Hörmann ou bien Carl Schuch, ainsi que les grands chefs d'oeuvre de la Sécession et de l'avant-garde autrichienne.

In the time of Klimt - The Vienna Secession
Dates:12/02/2015-21/06/2015

The Pinacothèque de Paris, in partnership with Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura, wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt's part in the emerging of that movement is a major one. The artist's talent and brio, from his precocious start to his excessive decorative effects, where gildings and the emerging expressionism are dominant, are the foundations of a new period, which flowered in Vienna at the turn of the century. That artistic movement is, in fact, at the origin of the birth, a few years later, of one of the major currents in modern art, Expressionism, which was the theme of an exhibition in the museum in 2011.

The exhibition shows over 180 works taken from the collections of the Belvedere museum in Vienna, as well as from private collections. The curatorship of the exhibition is ensured by Alfred Weidinger, curator of the Belvedere museum in Vienna.
