Selections from the Harry C. Sigman Collection of European and American Decorative Art
Dates:10.2.2015-10.2.2016

In this exhibit, the Museum debuts a selection from Harry C. Sigman’s 2014 gift of 86 objects to the Morse. Sigman, a Los Angeles attorney, began collecting European and American decorative art in 1969, and his gift dovetails with the late 19th- and early 20th-century styles represented in the Morse collection. The donation includes art glass, pottery, metalwork, and furniture. Though comprised mainly of Jeannette and Hugh McKean’s massive gift, the Morse collection has always been supported by generous individuals such as Harry Sigman whose contributions have helped it to grow in important ways. The finely crafted objects on view can be appreciated both individually and in the context of the Museum’s entire collection.

Berlin
Jugendstil
Dates:16.9.2014-16.9.2015

As of now, the Brohan Museum in a changing exhibition architecture, a new presentation of the rich holdings of the Art Nouveau period to see. Be shown, for example, works of the Paris World Fair in 1900, the Arts and Crafts movement, the Wiener Werkstätte, artists and companies such as Alfons Mucha, Alfred Grenander, Henry van de Velde, Johann Loetz., Peter Behrens and Bruno Paul. The exhibition features furniture, artwork, porcelain, glass, textiles and metal.

The Art Nouveau is represented in the new presentation as a social phenomenon. Whatever one may call the movement - whether Jugendstil, Art Nouveau, Secession style or Stile Liberty - it was more than just a style. Behind this was rather an attempt to develop a new, comprehensive all areas of life aesthetics. There creative answers were sought on contradictions, which were connected directly or indirectly with industrialization. Nature was not only a source of inspiration for a new ornamentation, but also a model for a better life model. Symbolism, dreamy and fairytale worlds shaped the motives and were often rather unpleasant reality of everyday life.

Paris
Le vitrail: comment prendre soin d'un patrimoine fragile?
Dates:8.7.2015-10.7.2015

Les vitraux sont un patrimoine fragile, mince paroi de verre et de plomb qui clôt les baies des nombreux édifices civils et religieux depuis le Haut Moyen Âge. Leur fragilité, qui les soumet, sans grande défense, aux intempéries, à la pollution, parfois au vandalisme, a de tout temps nécessité des interventions régulières d’entretien, de réparation, de restauration, souvent de remplacement. Au-delà des opérations spectaculaires de restauration où l’on applique les techniques les plus avancées de nettoyage ou de protection, les interventions plus modestes de simple entretien, de soins de base, méritent attention, car elles ont un rôle fondamental dans la préservation à long terme des verrières anciennes et modernes. Au temps où la crise économique touche de nombreux pays, il est opportun de réfléchir à une approche de conservation qui s’adapte, dans les meilleures conditions pour les œuvres, à de nouvelles contraintes financières.

Budapest
Lechner, A Creative Genius
Dates:19.11.2014-31.5.2015

In 2014 the Museum commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. To mark this anniversary, the Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest are jointly organizing an international conference and an exhibition.

This exhibition presents the whole scope of the work of the architect Ödön Lechner. Special attention is paid to five major works, nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Site status: the Kecskemét City Hall, the parish church of Budapest-Kőbánya, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Institute of Geology, and the Postal Savings Bank. Visitors can familiarise themselves with these through the architect’s original plans and drawings, as well as period and modern photographs. Working drawings of the ornaments so crucial to Lechner’s work, the publications which inspired him, and examples of the Zsolnay ceramic in which they were realized are also presented. One of the rooms evokes the world of the Japan Coffee House, Lechner’s second home, another acommodates a panoramic movie of his major works.
