Between lights : Lamps and artefacts of illumination with style
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
“There is no light so domestic as nocturnal light, nor space so private as that which is tenderly illuminated by lamps”, with these words the architect Luis Fernandez-Galiano introduced one of the areas of an exhibition on interior spaces referring to nocturnal lights. It is to say that the private space is recognized by nocturnal lighting, which, according to the moment, is the flame of a candle that trembles or the lampshades which project conical incandescent forms as if they were domestic lighthouses. Light transfigures that which it touches and the variety of lamps is not as important as the variety of lights. Thus, light sources determine a particular atmosphere. To write about a type of artefact which is so familiar as lamps seems to lead to a reflection on their appearance and function, which have varied over time. By way of introduction we will sketch out a few considerations, that are in no way intended as a history, nor a stylistic sequence. In fact, we want to offer you some ingredients with which to reflect and which could be useful for future in-depth study on the fascinating history of human light. 15 euros

Considering and interpreting leisure. Pastimes, entertainments, hobbies and addictions in the Barcelona of 1900 (eBook)
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
In the throes of modernization, the Barcelona of 1900 was buzzing with energy and an unprecedented culture of leisure emerged. The city’s residents made full use of their free time, forging relationships with one another through a highly varied range of initiatives and activities, taking advantage of existing opportunities and creating new ones. In addition to the traditional celebration of civic festivals, popular meals and various types of processions, innovative new forms of cultural consumption sprang up to satisfy all tastes and budgets. Numerous cinemas opened, the first amusement parks threw open their gates and new theatres raised their curtains. Thanks to these developments, the vicinity around the avenue Paral·lel became the epicentre of Barcelona nightlife. This book offers a panoply of images of the diversions, entertainments and hobbies of that fascinating era of contrasts, the turn-of-the-century Barcelona of Modernisme.

Pensar i interpretar l'oci. Passatemps, entreteniments, aficions i addiccions a la Barcelona del 1900
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
L’efervescència de la Barcelona del 1900, en procés de modernització, va afavorir l’aparició d’una cultura de l’oci que va viure un moment sense precedents. Els barcelonins utilitzaven el seu temps lliure i es relacionaven entre ells amb iniciatives i activitats de caràcter molt divers, algunes de les quals ja existien i d’altres eren de nova creació. Més enllà de les celebracions tradicionals (festes majors, fontades, processons), es van emprendre innovadores formes de consum cultural, per a tots els gustos i per a totes les butxaques. Es van obrir nombroses sales de cinema, els primers parcs d’atraccions i nous teatres, gràcies als quals el Paral·lel va esdevenir l’epicentre de la nit barcelonina. Aquest llibre ofereix un repertori d’imatges de les diversions, dels entreteniments, de les aficions d’aquella fascinant època de contrastos, la del modernisme.

Le petit monde de l’architecte Henri Jacobs 1864-1935
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
L’historien de l’art Franco Borsi a écrit qu’après Horta et Hankar, Henri Jacobs a été l’architecte le plus intéressant de l’Art nouveau. Aussi à l’aise dans une architecture privée élégante, raffinée dans l’harmonie des matériaux et des couleurs, tout en restant classique dans le plan, que dans le logement social ou le logement moyen, où il privilégie le confort sans tomber dans la banalité et sans négliger l’apparence, il est, avant tout, le principal bâtisseur des écoles de Bruxelles, mais figure aussi parmi les principaux artisans de l’architecture scolaire en Brabant, se jouant des diverses contraintes et des règlements émis par les différentes autorités. Ce livre retrace le parcours de trois générations de Jacobs : Henri Jacobs lui-même, son père, enseignant, et son oncle, architecte, qui s’illustrèrent particulièrement à Saint-Josse, grâce à qui il est allé à bonne école, puis son fils, Henri Aimé, qui grandira au milieu des tables à dessiner et prendra sa succession. Jacobs a connu le succès en son temps. Le livre s’efforce de mettre en évidence son réseau de relations, de contacts, de clients, d’artistes, ce « petit monde » qui l’entoure durant toute sa carrière. Parmi ses proches, il faut relever Godefroid Devreese, le sculpteur, Privat Livemont, le peintre, et Paul Gilson, le musicien. Si ses principales réalisations se situent à Schaerbeek, où il est le principal architecte du Foyer schaerbeekois et où se dresse son chef-d’oeuvre, le groupe scolaire Josaphat, beaucoup sont aussi emblématiques de l’architecture bruxelloise en général, comme l’ancienne École normale Émile André rue des Capucins, plusieurs écoles de Laeken, le groupe scolaire Félix Govaert à Auderghem, l’actuel Athénée d’Uccle I et l’école du square Marlow ainsi que d’autres bâtiments scolaires à Uccle, l’École en couleurs et l’école de la rue des Alliés à Forest, les deux écoles de la rue Herkoliers et l’Athénée à Koekelberg. Mais il construit aussi en Brabant, de Hal à Rhode- Saint-Genèse, de Londerzeel à Tirlemont, en passant par Grimbergen, Zaventem et Diegem. Ce livre est la première monographie consacrée aux Jacobs. Depuis plus de vingt ans, l’auteur, archéologue issue de l’Université libre de Bruxelles et active dans la protection du patrimoine bruxellois, qui consacre ses recherches à l’architecture scolaire en Brabant, s’intéresse à ces personnalités. L’ouvrage révèle une importante liste chronologique d’oeuvres, dont la plupart sont inédites, ainsi que des encarts, mettant en lumière, soit des projets ou des réalisations, soit des personnages, familiers, entrepreneurs, clients que les Jacobs ont côtoyés. Il constitue une approche nouvelle de l’architecture bruxelloise de la fin du XIXe et de la première moitié du XXe siècle, mettant en évidence les hommes et les relations qui les lient. 360 pages Format 24 x 16,5 cm 482 ill. en quadrichromie Prix de vente: A 60

Jugendstil
Dates:16/09/2014-16/09/2015

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.

Visiting Masterpiece Gustav Klimt’s "Adam and Eve"
Dates:17/01/2015-27/04/2015

For the first time in its history, the MFA will exhibit a painting by Gustav Klimt—among the most important artists of the early 20th century.

Adam and Eve (1917–18) will be on loan from the Belvedere Museum in Vienna as part of the MFA’s Visiting Masterpiece series, giving visitors a taste of the artist’s signature style, including his sensuous approach to the nude, his bold experiments with pattern, color, and finish, and his exploration of human consciousness and desire. The work will be juxtaposed with the MFA’s life-sized study of a nude couple, Two Nudes (Lovers) (1913), painted by Klimt’s Viennese friend and colleague, Oskar Kokoschka. No more than five years separate the two paintings, which share many features—ambitious scale, daring experiments with form and finish, and, above all, a fascination with sexuality. Each is, in its own way, a product of Freud’s Vienna, but also of a singular artist with a singular vision.

Hokusai
Dates:05/04/2015-09/08/2015

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.

Hokusai
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999

Katsushika Hokusai remains one of Japan's most popular and influential artists. This handy volume presents the wide range of Hokusai's artistic production in terms of one of his most remarkable characteristics: his intellectual ingenuity. It explores the question of how the self-styled "Man Mad about Drawing" approached his subjects—how he depicted human bodies in motion, combined figures and landscapes, represented three-dimensional objects on two-dimensional surfaces and when he used the techniques of illusionism or adjusted reality for greater visual or emotional effect. Including some 50 stunning and unusual paintings, prints and drawings from the peerless Hokusai collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this book is a treasure trove that introduces readers to a witty, wide-ranging and inimitably ingenious Hokusai.

Holland on Paper In the Age of Art Nouveau
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
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.
