The Divine Marchesa - Art and life of Luisa Casati from the Belle Époque to the roaring twenties
Dates:03/10/2014-08/03/2015

Venice evokes the figure of the woman and the myth that fascinated d'Annunzio and his follies became the muse of the greatest artists of the time as Boldini, Bakst, by Marinetti in Balla, from Man Ray to Alberto Martini, Van Dongen Romain and Brooks.

Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, one of the "places" most loved by the Divine Marchesa, will be the site of the first extraordinary exhibition dedicated to Luisa Casati Stampa, the woman who in the early twentieth century, with the exaggerated makeup, the transgressive and eccentric performance and life over the top, he was able to transform itself into a work of art, a living legend, disturbing and surprising representation of modernity and avant-garde.

The exhibition, conceived by Daniela Ferretti, edited by Fabio Benzi and Gioia Mori, is co-produced by the Civic Museums Foundation of Venice and 24 ORE Cultura - Gruppo 24 Ore, has over one hundred works, including paintings, drawings, jewelry, sculptures, photographs and clothes from private collections and international museums.

The extraordinary collection of art works and portraits that were devoted to her or commissioned pieces will be on display in the exhibition come from private collections, such as the head of polychrome ceramic work of Renato Bertelli, The Marchesa Casati Romain and Brooks and sculpture by Paolo Troubetzkoy portrait of the Marchesa Casati with a greyhound. He subsequently joined by masterpieces from museums around the world such as Portrait of the Marchesa Casati by Giovanni Boldini GNAM of Rome, Marchesa Casati by Augustus Edwin John the Art Gallery of Ontario, the many portraits which he dedicated Alberto Martini, Lines of force landscape maiolicato of Giacomo Balla and jewelry by Cartier inspired her.

To note is the many photographs of Luisa Casati Stampa: from the shots of Gayne Adolphe de Meyer, Man Ray and Mariano Fortuny, to those stolen, when he lived in poverty in London, Cecil Beaton.

The exhibition, through constant references, reconstructs the social and artistic life of the crossed Luisa Casati Stampa: the gilded cage of high society encounter with Gabriele d'Annunzio - that forever changed and became a bond of love and friendship that lasted a lifetime - from the extravagant costumes, the practice of the occult period to arrive at the "futurist" Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in which he meets and marries the cause of the artistic movement, promoting artists and collecting their works , ending with economic ruin and exile in the British capital where he died in July 1957.

Three floors of Palazzo Fortuny "immerse" the visitor into the atmosphere in which he lived the Divine Marchesa that, for half a century, he was a living legend, a dark lady, a major art collector and patron, muse of the Symbolists, the Fauves, Futurists and surrealists: a myth that still inspires artists today and the great house of haute couture.

Wien
Silver Age - Russian Art in Vienna around 1900
Dates:27/06/2014-28/09/2014

The Belvedere’s exhibition Silver Age - Russian Art in Vienna around 1900, scheduled for summer 2014, is devoted to Russian art and the cultural relations between Russia and Austria at the beginning of the twentieth century. The term Silver Age refers to the cultural bloom in Russian literature and the visual arts after 1900 and is considered an equivalent to the German expression Jugendstil or Art Nouveau.

The exhibition Silver Age - Russian Art in Vienna around 1900 presents works by such Russian artists as Michail Vrubel, Valentin Serov, Nicholas Roerich, and Boris Kustodiev, whose pictures were on display in Vienna more than one hundred years ago, and illustrates the mutual influences of this cultural exchange between Russian and Austrian art.

Selections from the Harry C. Sigman Collection of European and American Decorative Art
Dates:10/02/2015-10/02/2016

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.

The Bride Elect—Gifts from the 1905 Wedding of Elizabeth Owens Morse
Dates:10/02/2015-10/02/2016

In 1905 Elizabeth Owens Morse, the daughter of Charles Hosmer Morse and Martha Owens Morse, married Richard Genius. The gift registry of this socially prominent Chicago bride—entitled “The Bride Elect”—survives in the Morse Museum’s archive, showing more than 250 gifts. Together these items provide a snapshot of the era, a glimpse into 1905 gift-giving traditions, and some insight into popular retail decisions made by wealthy consumers in the Chicago area. In this new exhibition, the Morse presents a representative group of the lovely gifts that survive from the Morse-Genius wedding, including Tiffany art glass, Rookwood pottery, and Gorham silver.

Winter Park, Florida
Revival and Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment
Dates:21/10/2014-21/10/2015

The Arts window by J. & R. Lamb Studios is the centerpiece of this major new exhibition that illustrates the rich diversity of styles that made up the aesthetic environment of the late 19th century in both Europe and America. Lamb Studios, a prominent American glasshouse of the era, exhibited the 1894 neoclassical window widely. In preparation for its debut at the Morse, the window, more than eight feet in diameter, underwent extensive conservation. The installation features 20 additional leaded-glass windows and selections of art glass, pottery, and furniture, a number of which also have never been exhibited. Other windows on view—some avant-garde, others reviving the past—include examples by Tiffany Studios, John LaFarge, Frank Lloyd Wright, Edward Burne-Jones, Donald MacDonald, and Heaton, Butler & Bayne.

A Lovosice la reconstruction de la villa du style d’Art Nouveau bientôt achevée
Dates:14/08/2014-14/10/2014

A Lovosice (Bohême de l’Ouest), les travaux de reconstruction de la villa Pfannschmidt sont au point de s’achever. Entrepris en juillet 2013, les travaux ont coûté 55 millions de couronnes (2 millions d’euros). La villa du style d’Art Nouveau sera utilisée comme bibliothèque municipale et comme centre d’information. Le bâtiment a été construit par la famille allemande des fermiers Pfannschmidt, dont un membre était maire de Lovosice entre 1888 et 1891. La famille a été expulsée en Allemagne après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. La villa a été utilisée comme un centre médical jusqu’en 2009. Il s’agit d’un des rares bâtiments historiques conservés dans la ville de Lovosice.

 
II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25/06/2015-28/06/2015

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.
