Exhibition Klimt, Kupka, Picasso and others at the Belvedere in Vienna – from 10 March to 19 June 2016

Form Art

In the late nineteenth century, art based on form took on specific significance in the Danube Monarchy. Subsuming almost an entire cultural region, “form art” was the expression of a special insight and of a collective consciousness. Around 1900, form became the basis from which a wide spectrum of non-representational art developed. In the exhibition Klimt, Kupka, Picasso and Others – Form Art, Hungarian Constructivism, Czech and Slovakian Cubism, and the art of the Vienna Secession join forces for the sake of an enjoyable show.

Call for papers The Jewel in Art and Art in Jewel  at the MNAC in Barcelona – 15 July 2016

Third European Congress on Jewellery

The aim is that this Congress should promote the study of jewellery as an academic discipline. This edition will analyse it not so much as an independent topic, but in a dialogue with the different arts and with the artists, in an international geographical context and in the same timeframe as the collections of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, from the medieval period to the individualised jewels of contemporary artists.

The congress is addressed to museum professionals, researchers, university professors and teachers, collectors, professional jewellers, artists, designers, gemologists and young researchers.

A short abstract (200-300 words) together with a brief CV should be sent to by July 15, 2016. We look forward to 20-minutes papers in Catalan, Spanish and English.

Exhibition Tulips from Baroque to Art Nouveau at the Riga Art Nouveau Center in Riga – from 27 April to 12 June 2016

The tulip motif was widely used in the Art Nouveau period because its slender stem, pointed leaves and graceful flower reflected the essence of the style. In this period tulips were not put in bouquets any longer, emphasising instead grace and elegance of the blossom.

In the collection of the museum “Riga Art Nouveau Centre” there are several outstanding examples of the style – a milk pitcher with a tulip bouquet, a delicate mocha cup and saucer with an elegant painting of a tulip as well as embroidery adorning tablecloths and pillow cases.

In the exhibition, they are very well supplemented with 18th and 19th century items from the collection of the Latvian National Museum of Art and a private collection.

The exhibition was prepared in cooperation with the Embassy of Kingdom of the Netherlands.

(Museum is open from 10:00 to 18:00 every day, closed on Mondays).
