Exhibition Kokoschka & Gauguin decrypted at the Fin-de-Siècle Museum in Brussels – from 22 July 2014 to 25 January 2015

See the invisible

Two major paintings – the Portrait of Suzanne Bambridge by Gauguin and Kokoschka’s Trance Player – are at the centre of the experience. Through an innovative technology – the digital analysis of “multispectral” images – you will learn more about these paintings and, in a broader way, understand the advantages of this method for the conservation of artworks.

Exhibition "Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec" at the Kunstforum Wien in Vienna – until 25 January 2015

The Path to Modernism

In October 2014 the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is showing the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec ever held in Austria. The 150th anniversary of this spectacular artist’s birth is a fitting occasion for holding this exhibition, in which loans from international collections present Lautrec’s multifaceted oeuvre and his extraordinary observational skills in different genres – paintings, works on paper, lithographs and posters.

Besides the illustrious “loud” posters for the pleasure palaces of Montmartre, the foundation of Lautrec’s international fame, we can also discover the lesser known Toulouse Lautrec: paintings in muted colors facilitating an intimate form of portraying human psychology, drawings with pen and pencil, ideal for a pithy characterization of the subject. The linking and juxtaposition of different modes of expression, themes and concepts are a reflection of the artist’s complex figure on the brink between two centuries. A unique show, which illuminates new aspects of one of the great protagonists at the dawning of Modernism.

Publication Gallé at the Ecole de Nancy Museum in Nancy

The Ecole de Nancy Museum has an exceptional collection of works of Émile Gallé, in number and in quality.

This new album, published on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the museum, gathers a selection of key works of the artist, as well as less-known works or aimed at a personal use or more confidential (items in leather, textiles, etc.). The photographic and documentary collection – sometimes unpublished – enables to evoke Gallé’s family and intellectual framework, as well as his professional entourage (art factory, colleagues, working methods, etc.).

Conceived under the direction of Valérie Thomas, director of the museum and representative member of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network, in collaboration with the conservation team, and published by Snoeck editions, this book invites to better understand the abundant work and the complex personality of the Ecole de Nancy’s leader, and reveals numerous unknown works and documents. It also demonstrates the generosity of the artist’s descendents towards the collections of the museum since the 1950’s until today.
