Montaner i Simón. A publishing house with a history
Dates:02/12/2017-02/12/2017

Guided tour about the work of the catalan modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Guided itinerary to discover the history of three buildings by the Modernista architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner: the old publishing house Montaner i Simón, now the home of the Fundació Tàpies; the Palau Montaner, now the home of the Spanish Government Delegation in Catalonia; and the Casa Thomas, now the home of the designer furniture shop Cubiñá.

Walthamstow, London

Dates:07/10/2017-28/01/2018

May Morris: Art & Life is the most comprehensive survey of May Morris’s work to date, bringing together over 80 works from collections around the UK, many of which have never been on public display.

The exhibition reveals the breadth of May's creative pursuits, featuring wallpaper and embroidery alongside jewellery, dresses and book designs, as well as sketches and watercolours. It focuses on May’s development of art embroidery – elevating needlework from a domestic craft to a serious art form – and highlights the extent of her influence in the UK and abroad, particularly the US.

A number of rarely seen works from public and private collections are featured in the exhibition, including a pair of expansive silk hangings, which May designed and embroidered in 1895 under the auspices of Morris & Co. The Spring and Summer, and Autumn and Winter panels are thought to have been commissioned for £150 making them most expensive entry in the Morris & Co. order book for that period, and a highlight of the exhibition.

Also on display for the first time is a hand painted Valentine card made by May for George Bernard Shaw in 1886, which was recently discovered among an uncatalogued album of cards sent to Shaw in the British Library's collection. May and Shaw were in love though he maintained he was too poor to marry her. He would later insist that a "Mystic Betrothal" had existed between them, yet this did not prevent him from establishing close relationships with other women at the same time. Despite being emotionally rebuffed, May recovered and the pair remained good friends.

Paris
Guimard et ses contemporains : de l’éclectisme à l’architecture en béton
Dates:21/10/2017-21/10/2017

Cette visite sera l’occasion de découvrir des constructions emblématiques dans le XVIIe arrondissement. Georges Massa, Auguste Perret ou encore Théo Petit, vont tenter d’exprimer leur art à travers le choix de matériaux qui leur permettent de colorer leur édifice ou questionner la hiérarchie de valeur en mettant en avant, non pas la pierre onéreuse et traditionnelle, mais le béton. Chacun proposera sa vision de l’architecture moderne, au travers de l’habitat ou d’espaces commerciaux, afin de répondre aux demandes de leurs contemporains tout en proposant un paysage urbain résolument nouveau, et qui deviendra emblématique du XXe siècle.

Paris
Guimard et ses contemporains : Jules Lavirotte
Dates:28/10/2017-28/10/2017

Ce parcours est l’occasion de comparer et tisser des liens entre les deux architectes lyonnais et figures de l’Art nouveau parisien, Jules Lavirotte et Hector Guimard. Confrères mais aussi compétiteurs, ils s’étaient accaparés des espaces de création bien distincts : Guimard principalement dans le XVIe arrondissement ; Lavirotte dans le VIIe. Nous commencerons par la Maison des Arums d’Octave Raquin, puis nous poursuivrons avec les édifices les plus remarquables de la carrière de Lavirotte, avec un arrêt devant l’hôtel particulier du bijoutier René Lalique.

Paris
Le nouveau Paris de 1900
Dates:29/10/2017-29/10/2017

Cette visite sera l’occasion de découvrir des constructions d’Hector Guimard au cœur de la capitale et d’apprécier le bouillonnement artistique qui s’empare des façades à l’aube du XXe siècle. Nous nous intéresserons à plusieurs architectes qui ont participé à l’embellissement de la rue Réaumur après de son percement, ainsi qu’à différents types d’édifices : immeuble d’habitation et de bureaux, brasserie, grand magasin, édifice cultuel, etc. L’Art nouveau sous toutes ses formes sera le sujet de ce parcours qui prévoit un court trajet en métro, et, comme d’habitude, de la marche.

Bruxelles
Hôte Max Hallet
Dates:21/10/2017-21/10/2017

Construit en 1902-1905 par Victor Horta pour l'avocat et politicien Max Hallet et son épouse, ce bâtiment marque, dans la carrière de Horta, un passage à un style assagi. A l'intérieur offre un espace magique où courbes et contre-courbes se reflètent harmonieusement dans de splendides verrières et vitraux. L'escalier d'honneur constitue véritablement le cœur de l'habitation. Déployé sur deux imposantes volées en marbre blanc veiné, il est baigné de la lumière provenant de la véranda, au premier palier, et du vaste lanterneau.

Bruxelles
Maison Cauchie
Dates:21/10/2017-21/10/2017

Cette maison-atelier construite en 1905 par et pour Paul Cauchie est une des œuvres les plus originales de l'Art nouveau bruxellois. La quasi-totalité de la façade et certains murs intérieurs sont couverts de sgraffites. Menacée de démolition, la maison a été classée en 1975 et restaurée grâce à ses actuels propriétaires. La restauration des sgraffites, à une époque où l'on était plus guère familiarisé avec cette technique, a constitué un modèle.

Bruxelles
Max Hallet House
Dates:21/10/2017-21/10/2017

This building was built between 1902 and 1905 to the designs of Victor Horta for the lawyer Max Hallet, and it marks the beginning of Horta's transition to a more sober style of Art Nouveau. The interior is magical with curves and counter-curves reflecting each other harmoniously in splendid stained-glass windows. The huge staircase is at the heart of the house, and is made up of two flights of white marble stairs, bathed in daylight from the verandah on the first landing and from a huge skylight above the second landing.

Szeged
A Bird's Eye View of Art Nouveau
Dates:19/10/2017-20/12/2017

A photo exhibition set up in front of the Reök Palace shows Szeged's most beautiful art nouveau buildings from an unusual perspective. The emphasis is on details that are often hidden from view. An exhibition of recent drone photos taken of 14 lovely Szeged buildings are now on display for passers-by on Ede Magyar Square. The exhibition's title also refers to an anecdote told about Ödön Lechner, one of the greatest geniuses of Hungarian art nouveau architecture. The story goes that one of Lechner's students had lodged the criticism that it was a shame to design such a splendid roof for one of the master's palaces, because nothing could be seen of it from street level. To this, Lechner replied, “The birds will see them!” The collection being displayed in front of the Reök Palace uses this thinking as its starting point. The novelty of the images is the fact that they show these stunning buildings from an angle that we only rarely see them, if ever. These thrilling photos reveal hidden details. The Reök Palace, built in 1907, is the most beautiful art nouveau building in Szeged, and perhaps all of Hungary. Often compared to Gaudí's structures in Barcelona, it was designed by the brilliant architect Ede Magyar as a residence for the hydraulic engineer Iván Reök. Even by European standards, the palace is one of the finest examples of art nouveau architecture. It serves as the point of origin for the A Bird's Eye View of Art Nouveau exhibition. Also included in the overview along with from the palace are the Ungár-Mayer House, also designed by Magyar, and the Raichle Palace. The latter was built based on the plans of architect J. Ferenc Raichle, a leading light of the art nouveau style in the Vojvodina region, in the same year that the Reök Palace was completed. Raichle was also responsible for the Gróf Palace, a beautiful and iconic Szeged building that also appears among the photos. Other images include the Deutsch Palace, the New Synagogue and the Tömörkény High School building. The exhibition will remain open in front of the REÖK Regional Art Center until 20 December. Compiled from footage from EURO-TV, it was organised by students working on a curatorial specialisation in the University of Szeged's philosophy master's degree programme under the direction of art historian Dr Róbert Nátyi.
