L'art nouveau en Europe

Roger-Henri Guerrand, historien du quotidien et de la culture, a écrit le livre de référence sur l'art nouveau, réédité, complété et actualisé par Thierry Paquot. A elle seule, la préface de Louis Aragon justifie l'achat et la lecture de l'ouvrage.

Qu'on l'appelle Art Nouveau, Modern Style, Jugendstil, Joventut ou Style Sécession, une aventure artistique est née au tournant du XXe siècle. Elle utilise le verre, le fer, le ciment armé ; elle privilégie les formes linéaires, végétales dans un souci de styliser l'image. Mais l'Art Nouveau se veut aussi une machine de guerre contre la doctrine de l'art pour l'art, contre l'élitisme artistique ou l'art académique. Nouveau, absolument ; mais moderne tout autant, telle est sa ligne. Roger-Henri Guerrand livre ici la "géohistoire" de l'Art Nouveau, remontant à l'Exposition universelle de 1851, combinant études par pays et points de vue esthétiques pour aboutir à la seule synthèse historique disponible sur ce que Louis Aragon, dans sa somptueuse préface, qualifie de "décor de la vie où triomphaient la libellule, le marronnier, l'iris, les lys et l'orchidée".

Roger-Henri Guerrand était spécialiste de l'histoire de la vie quotidienne en milieu urbain. Il avait notamment publié : Les lieux : histoire des commodités et Le confident des dames : le bidet du XVIIIe au XXe siècle.

Making the Message: Printmaking from Toulouse-Lautrec to Today

Printmaking has changed the path of modern and contemporary art, carrying social and political messages around the globe. This studio class explores a range of techniques and styles that artists have employed to share ideas, images, and messages.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec 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 colours facilitating an intimate form of portraying human psychology, drawings with pen and pencil, ideal for a pithy characterisation 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.


Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) est aujourd’hui l’artiste japonais le plus célèbre à travers le monde. Son oeuvre peint, dessiné et gravé incarne la spiritualité et l’âme de son pays, particulièrement ses estampes de paysages, synthèse remarquable entre les principes traditionnels de l’art japonais et les influences occidentales.

Conçue en deux volets, l’exposition présente 500 oeuvres exceptionnelles, dont une grande partie ne quittera plus le Japon à compter de l’ouverture du musée Hokusai, à Tokyo en 2016. Exposition organisée par la Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais.

Relâche du 21 au 30 novembre 2014 


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.

The Divine Marchesa - Art and life of Luisa Casati from the Belle Époque to the roaring twenties

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.

Silver Age - Russian Art in Vienna around 1900

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

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

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.

Revival and Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment

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.
