The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters from The Museum of Modern Art
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is widely regarded as the most talented and innovative printmaker of the late nineteenth century. Trained as a painter, Lautrec adopted color lithography in 1891, and it immediately became an obsession: in the decade before his early death, in 1901, he created more than 350 lithographs, from posters pasted up in the streets of Paris to livres d’artistes, fine art editions, and illustrations for magazines, journals, theater programs, books, and song sheets. Accompanying an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume presents more than one hundred prints and posters by Lautrec from MoMA’s outstanding collection of his work. Spanning the artist’s mature career, they exemplify Lautrec’s extraordinary range and ability as a printmaker and brilliantly evoke his milieu and central preoccupation: fin-de-siècle Paris, particularly the bohemian life he shared with the dancers, artists, prostitutes, and impresarios of the city’s burgeoning demimonde. Includes a color poster of Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithograph La Troupe de Mademoiselle Églantine. SIZE 9h x 10.5w x .25"d PAGES 160

The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters
Dates:26/07/2014-01/03/2015
A preeminent artist of Belle Époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) brought the language of the late-19th-century avant-garde to a broad public through his famous posters, prints, and illustrations for journals and magazines. A cultural nexus, he connected artists, performers, authors, intellectuals, and society figures of his day, creating a bridge between the brothels and society salons of the moment. His work allows entry into many facets of Parisian life, from politics to visual culture and the rise of popular entertainment in the form of cabarets and café-concerts. This exhibition, drawn almost exclusively from The Museum of Modern Art’s stellar collection of posters, lithographs, printed ephemera, and illustrated books, is the first MoMA exhibition in 30 years dedicated solely to Lautrec, and features over 100 examples of the best-known works created during the apex of his career. Organized thematically, the exhibition explores five subjects that together create a portrait of Lautrec’s Paris. A section devoted to café-concerts and dance halls examines the rise of nightlife culture in France through the depiction of famous venues, including the celebrated Moulin Rouge. Another focuses on the actresses, singers, dancers, and performers who sparked the artist’s imagination and served as his muses, including Yvette Guilbert, acclaimed dancer Loie Fuller, and close friend Jane Avril. Lautrec’s sympathetic images of women are evident in a group of works that includes his landmark Elles portfolio, depicting prostitutes during nonworking hours, in quiet moments of introspection. Lautrec’s role in Paris’s artistic community is explored in a section devoted to his creative circle, highlighting designs for song sheets for the popular music that flooded Paris’s café-concerts, programs for the avant-garde theatrical productions that he attended, and his contributions to magazines and intellectual reviews. A final section looks at the pleasures of the capital, from horse racing at Longchamp and promenading on the Bois de Boulogne, to the new fad for ice skating and the enduring appeal of Paris’s culture of gastronomy. The accompanying publication highlights the Museum’s collection of prints and posters by Lautrec, with an introductory essay on the artist and five illustrated thematic sections that explore belle époque Paris as seen through Lautrec’s eyes, by Sarah Suzuki. Organized by Sarah Suzuki, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA. The exhibition is supported by the MoMA Annual Exhibition Fund. Paint and wallpaper provided by Farrow & Ball.

The Norwegian Japonism
Dates:26/09/2014-07/04/2015

“The movement that is now spreading from Japan across Europe”

This quote from the Norwegian artist Gerhard Munthe (1849–1929) refers to one of the main trends in European art from the mid-19th century through the early decades of the 20th century.

In 1853, Japan opened its borders to the outside world after 200 years of isolation. This lead to a cult of all things Japanese among European artists – a movement labelled as Japonism from the 1860s–70s onward. This Japanese-inspired art did not constitute a style as such, but greatly influenced a number of styles in European art. In the 1880s and 1890s, Japonism became a major ingredient of the Art Nouveau style. In Norway, Art Nouveau peaked in popularity in the years between 1890 and 1910.

This exhibition looks at the connections between the Art Nouveau style, the nation-building project in Norway, and the Japonism movement as expressed in Norwegian Art Nouveau. Starting with Gerhard Munthe, considered the leading proponent of Japonism in Norway, the exhibition highlights connections between Japonism and the distinct national character of Norwegian Art Nouveau in terms of technique, range of motifs, format, and choice of materials.

Venice
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.

Bruxelles (Ixelles)
The Charlier museum and Victor Horta
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
In 1890, the patron of the arts Henri Van Cutsem (1839-1904) inherited a townhouse in the neoclassical style at 16 avenue des Arts in Sint-Josse-ten-Noode, a borough neighbouring the historical city centre of Brussels. To show off his art collections to best effect, Van Cutsem entrusted the works to extend his home and convert the stables and annexes to a young and as yet unknown architect: Victor Horta. Between 1890 and 1893 the latter designed two galleries topped with glass roofs with metal supports and a new facade giving onto rue de la Charité. This enlarged Hôtel Charlier provides an early example of the innovations that would later become distinctive of the work of the master of Art Nouveau: the fluidity and transparency of the interior spaces, the use and affirmation of visible metal in a private home, fruit at the base of walls to lend an organic illusion, etc. In 1928, the townhouse became known as the "Charlier Museum" in memory of the sculptor Guillaume Charlier (1854-1925), Van Cutsem's universal legatee, who donated the house and its art collections to the borough of Sint-Josse-ten-Noorde. In 1993 the museum was listed as a historical monument by the Brussels-Capital Region. 64 pages, 13 X 13 cm, 180 gramme
