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

Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910-1932
Dates:01.01.2050-01.01.2999
For designers, decorators or anyone simply in search of visual inspiration, this book is a goldmine and a fitting tribute to a period of astonishing creativity. A wealth of reproductions, many in colour, are supplemented by an exhaustive catalogue and artist biographies, as well as contemporary photographs of the textiles’ uses in fashion and interior decoration. The textile patterns and prints of the Wiener Werkstätte were among the most popular and successful designs of the early twentieth century, reflecting both the tastes of Viennese high society and the general trend towards artistic abstraction. Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910–32 presents selections from the original gouache drawings, pattern books and about 20,000 samples now in the collection of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna – a truly remarkable archive of most of the over 1,800 recorded fabric designs. These range from the early naturalistic motifs of Art Nouveau to the later geometric designs associated with Art Deco. Angela Völker’s text gives accounts of a range of topics, including the designs by Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffmann for Backhausen and Söhne before the foundation of the textile department in about 1910, methods of production, sales policy, customers and end use. 28.00 x 20.70 cm Paperback with flaps 256pp 417 Illustrations, 306 in colour First published 2004

Taxile Doat – Maître des Grand Feu
Dates:27.02.2014-29.09.2014
Ce céramiste, surnommé "le maître du grand feu", a travaillé de 1877 à 1905 à la Manufacture nationale de Sèvres, avant d'ouvrir son propre atelier. Ses recherches sur la porcelaine, le grès et la glaçure, ainsi que son désir de renouveler les décors et les formes des vases sous l'influence naturaliste et japonaise font de lui l'un des acteurs majeurs du renouveau de la céramique en France au début du 20ème siècle. Il reçoit la médaille d'or à l'Exposition universelle de 1889. En 1909, il part enseigner la céramique aux Etats Unis, à l'académie des arts de St Louis, à la demande d'Edouard Gardner Lewis. Il revient définitivement en France en 1915. Doat publia en 1905 un livre, "Les céramiques de grand feu", dans lequel il explique ses recherches, notamment sur un type de décor dit de "pâte sur pâte", ainsi que de nouveaux types de glaçure. L'exposition du studio du musée Hetjens propose un ensemble de pièces de ce type, conservées dans une collection privée. ON peut admirer quelques exemples de son travail au musée d'Orsay, comme par exemple cette courge, qui n'est pas sans évoquer des verreries d'Emile Gallé sur ce thème, ou au musée des arts décoratifs. Taxile Doat est également présent dans les collections du V&A de Londres et dans des musées américains. Source: Véronique Baudouin, dans OFF, le blog du Musée de l'Ecole de Nancy.

Strasbourg 1900 - Carrefour des arts nouveaux
Dates:01.01.2050-01.01.2999
A la suite de l'annexion, l'Alsace et la Moselle, devenues terres d'Empire, vont connaître un essor remarquable, dont Strasbourg, ville forteresse, fut la principale bénéficiaire grâce à la construction d'édifices aux structures et lignes nouvelles, aux ornements de façades, aux décorations intérieures innovantes, aux projets d'hygiène et de cités-jardins... Les architectes optent alors pour des formes et des matériaux nouveaux et contribuent à faire de l'Alsace et de sa capitale Strasbourg un carrefour des Arts nouveaux, aux côtés de Nancy, la ville des artistes de l'école de Nancy et du plus connu d'entre eux, Emile Gallé, et de Munich ou Darmstadt. Ce mouvement mondial appelé également Modern Style ou Jugendstil va s'incarner essentiellement dans l'architecture et les arts décoratifs. Il est porté par une éthique où le beau, dans un environnement d'art global, veut marquer de son empreinte le monde de l'utile. On s'inquiète de la production en série qui déshumanise l'objet et l'on prône un retour à l'artisanat et aux arts appliqués.
