Henry van de Veldes Villa Esche in Chemnitz (DVD)
Henry van de Veldes Villa Esche in Chemnitz - Ein Lebensraum als Gesamtkunstwerk erschienen. Diese DVD gibt Einblicke in die Entstehungsgeschichte der Villa Esche, dokumentiert eine beispielgebend akribische Restaurierung des denkmalgeschützten Objektes und beleuchtet die heutige Nutzung des Hauses als überregionale Kultur- und Kommunikationsplattform, Tagungslocation, außergewöhnliches Veranstaltungspodium und van de Velde gewidmetes Museum. Einst war die Villa Esche ein als Gesamtkunstwerk gestalteter Lebensraum – heute dient sie im Sinne ihrer beiden geistigen Väter – des Gestalters Henry van de Velde und des Chemnitzer Strumpffabrikanten Herbert Eugen Esche - als Begegnungsstätte für Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft, Kunst und Kultur. Die Villa Esche in Chemnitz war 1902 der erste Architekturauftrag des belgischen Künstlers in Deutschland und gilt heute als ein besonders authentisches Dokument für van de Veldes damalige Interpretation des Jugendstils. Nachdem die Grundstücks- und Gebäudewirtschafts-Gesellschaft GGG im März 1998 die Villa Esche erworben hatte, beauftragte sie vor nunmehr 9 Jahren die Chemnitzer Firma VideoVision mit einer umfassenden filmischen Dokumentation. Diese sollte den damaligen maroden Zustandes des Hauses, die dreijährige Restaurierung, die Eröffnung im Jahr 2001 und die folgende öffentliche Nutzung des Hauses als Tagungsstätte, Eventlocation, Konzertpodium und Museum umfassen.
Hiroshige Prints (Ando, Ichiyusai, Utagawa) - ebook
Selected prints attributed and Ando Hiroshige who was also known by Ichiyūsai and Utagawa Hiroshige. You will also find an introduction from Frank Lloyd Wright reprinted from his catalog dated 1906. Subjects are the ocean, waves, people, fish,birds, a cat, boats, flowers and mountains. The pine tree or matsu can be found in many of these images.

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized, and he continues to inspire artists around the world. As the home of the largest and finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan—including the greatest variety of Hokusai works in any museum—the MFA is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive exhibition of this remarkable artist. Drawing from extensive holdings of paintings, woodblock prints, and illustrated printed books, the Museum will showcase an array of works from Hokusai’s seven-decade career, including lesser-known pieces depicting whimsical instructions on how to draw, dynamic paintings on paper lanterns, and elaborate cut-out dioramas. Also displayed are some of the most famous images in Japanese art, including Under the Wave Off Kanagawa (Great Wave) (about 1830–31)—from the legendary series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji—and the brilliantly colored multi-panel screen painting Phoenix (1835). Spanning Hokusai’s work from his 20s through his 80s, the exhibition will explore common themes through sections dedicated to topics such as landscapes, nature, fantasy, and the “Floating World” of urban culture (including depictions of the Kabuki theater and the Yoshiwara pleasure district). Works that depict Japanese historical and literary motifs will be featured along with “perspective prints” with exaggerated vanishing points, often used in toy peep shows. An extremely delicate silk square of a mythological Chinese lion, likely used as a gift wrapper (fukusa), will also be included, in a rare public display of the fragile work. An illustrated publication will accompany the exhibition.

Holland on Paper In the Age of Art Nouveau
Text by Clifford S. Ackley From the 1890s through the turn of the century, there was a flourishing of new, imaginative art and craft throughout Europe that we now know as Art Nouveau. The Netherlands experienced an inventive variant of this art and design phenomenon, but until now it has been largely overshadowed by its counterparts in other countries, especially France. This richly illustrated book is the first in English to celebrate the Dutch contribution to Art Nouveau through a tour of more than 100 works on paper--posters, decorative calendars and illustrated books, as well as prints and drawings. These innovative works of graphic design reveal the progressive Dutch artists’ conscious reaction against the past, their inspiration in natural forms and exotic cultures, and their embrace of the principle that art should transform everyday life. They also show how the New Art--Nieuwe Kunst in Dutch--coexisted and sometimes intertwined in the Netherlands with other artistic strands, including persistent realist trends, Symbolism and the emergence of modernism. Included here are early drawings by well-known artists Vincent van Gogh and Bart van der Leck, as well as new discoveries from Jan Toorop, Theo Nieuwenhuis, Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita, Theo Hoytema, G. W. Dijsselhof and C. A. Lion Cachet. With an introduction and explanatory text about each work of art by Clifford S. Ackley, one of the world’s leading specialists in Dutch prints and drawings, Holland on Paper provides a fascinating and visually rewarding introduction to a rich and creative artistic era. Hardcover, 9.5 x 10.5 in. / 256 pages / 155 color.

II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.

In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.

A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

Imperishable Beauty - Art Nouveau Jewelry
Meandering, looping, flamboyant lines characterize our understanding of the style known as Art Nouveau. In Imperishable Beauty: Art Nouveau Jewelry that understanding is explored through the jewels of an American private collection. Art Nouveau emerged in France and Belgium to become an international style with local variations. Yvonne Markowitz presents an intelligent and thorough overview of the movement locating its common themes in the art of the Pre-Raphaelites, the theory of John Ruskin, the Symbolist movement and the arts in Japan. She discusses the similarities and differences in style and concludes with a section on materials and techniques. Part 2 looks at the iconography of Art Nouveau jewelryand how a series of motifs was repeated in the work of many jewelers. These symbols were designed to be read and understood by those with artistic taste and sensibility. Elyse Karlin interprets such works as the sexually charged and fantastically curved carnation by René Lalique.

In the time of Klimt - The Vienna Secession

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.
