Una Stagione del Liberty a Riccione
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Since the late nineteenth century the villas vintage characterize the urban fabric of Riccione, tracing reflection of its history. The old fishing village, which has its hub in that stretch of the Via Flaminia Course renamed Fratelli Cervi, expands quickly up the dunes, lapped by the sea. So much so that in 1905 two hundred villas are surveyed. A heritage building that is the driving force in the wealthiest families in the Centre-North, attracted by the pleasantness of the pleasant seaside resort, its salubrious climate and the atmosphere lively, cheerful and hospitable. A process that, excluding the brackets of the sad events of the war continues for decades, recording a further development in the twenties and thirties. Period in which the Duce and his family spend their holidays in Riccione. "Ogni architettura è grande dopo il tramonto: forse l’architettura è veramente un’arte notturna, come quella dei fuochi artificiali." Gilbert Keith Chesterton Sin dalla fine dell’Ottocento i villini d’epoca caratterizzano il tessuto urbano di Riccione, tracciandone di riflesso la sua storia. Il vecchio borgo marinaro, che ha il suo fulcro in quel tratto della Flaminia rinominato Corso Fratelli Cervi, si espande in fretta sino alle dune, lambite dal mare. Tant’è che nel 1905 vengono censite duecento ville. Un patrimonio edilizio che trova la forza di propulsione nelle facoltose famiglie del Centro-Nord, attratte dalla gradevolezza della ridente località balneare, dal suo clima salubre e dalla sua atmosfera vivace, allegra e ospitale. Un processo che, escluse le parentesi dei tristi eventi bellici, prosegue nei decenni, registrando un ulteriore sviluppo negli anni Venti e Trenta. Periodo in cui il Duce con la sua famiglia trascorre le vacanze a Riccione. Avere una residenza estiva a pochi passi da quella di Donna Rachele Guidi e di Benito Mussolini, diventa appannaggio di gerarchi, imprenditori e professionisti. Riccione si arricchisce così di un considerevole patrimonio urbanistico, in buona parte cancellato nel tempo da quel processo d’innovazione che tuttora lo mette a repentaglio. Sono centinaia i villini demoliti nel dopoguerra per lasciare spazio a pensioni e alberghi che hanno segnato il boom del turismo popolare. In questo contesto s’inserisce la storia di Villa Antolini sulla quale il giovane autore Andrea Speziali ha svolto una certosina e meticolosa ricerca, che guida il lettore negli ambienti di quel "monumento" in stile Liberty, a Riccione davvero raro. Tra dettagli architettonici, interni ed esterni, attraverso una serie di rare immagini e una puntuale descrizione, turisti e residenti potranno così visitare idealmente le stanze di quel simbolo della Bella époque riccionese che resiste all’evoluzione urbanistica della città. Al nostro autore va dato merito di questo studio e soprattutto di aver scoperto che a firmare il progetto del fabbricato, autentico "gioiellino" incastonato tra il boulevard del Lungomare della Repubblica e Viale Milano, è stato Mario Mirko Vucetich, illustre architetto, nonché scrittore, scenografo e scultore di origine dalmata che operò soprattutto tra Friuli, Veneto, Emilia - Romagna e Lazio. Una scoperta di notevole rilevanza, destinata a traghettare il nome di Riccione oltre i confini nazionali. Questa pubblicazione, attraverso la parte monografica, dedicata al futurista che ebbe contatti con Carlo Emilio Gadda, diventa così occasione anche per conoscere e rivalutare il poliedrico artista, nel tempo abbandonato. (Tratto dalla Presentazione del libro di Nives Concolino) Andrea Speziali, nato il 28/09/1988 a Rimini e residente a Riccione, nella zona denominata Abissinia, a pochi passi da villa Antolini. Diplomato presso l’Istituto Statale d’Arte Federico Fellini, attualmente frequenta l’Accademia di Belle Arti a Rimini. Coltiva con passione l’interesse per l’arte e si dedica alla pittura, scultura e alla grafica, traendo spesso ispirazione dalla produzione di Mirko Vucetich, l’ecclettico architetto di Villa Antolini e dall’Art Nouveau, offrendone originali interpretazioni.

Budapest
The Bigot Pavilion – Art Nouveau Architectural Ceramics from Paris
Dates:26/05/2013-31/08/2014
This year, the Budapest the ensemble of Alexander Bigot’s monumental architectural ceramics can be seen for the first time since the Paris World's Fair of 1900. The ensemble was acquired with government funds by the director Jenő Radisics at the Paris Universal Exposition 1900 and has never been on display so far. Alexander Bigot’s pavilion constructed of Art Nouveau architectural sample pieces –wall revetments, fireplace frames, columns with plastic decorations, brackets, friezes- was bought entirely by the museum and was transported to Budapest after the exposition. The objects were deposited in the huge basement of the Museum of Applied Arts. The designers of the architectural ceramics were such outstanding French architects and sculptors of the period like Jules Lavirotte (1864-1924) or Paul Jouve (1878-1973). Similar pieces of architectural ceramics displayed at the exhibition can be found on facades of several Art Nouveau apartment buildings and palaces in Paris even today. The present exhibition hints at the future of the museum, expressing the desire that many hidden artworks in the collection, such as these, should be displayed – something which will only be possible after the reconstruction of the building designed by Ödön Lechner. The Ceramics Factory Alexandre Bigot (Mer, 1862 – Paris, 1927) established his ceramics manufactory at Mer in 1894, after his extensive studies of the natural sciences, chemistry and physics, and with enthusiasm for far-eastern as well as modern ceramic arts. His factory was producing stoneware fired at high temperatures and known as grès flammés. This material was most suitable for the decoration and panelling of the facades of modern ferro-concrete buildings, but the company also made various dishes and vases. The surface of the ceramics was usually covered with special glazes, including crystalline glazes, which often flowed down on the surface of the plastic forms. He also created special matte glazes, using acids to corrode the surface. At its heyday, the Bigot factory had about hundred and fifty workers. Products of Bigot The rich selection of products by the Bigot factory was listed in their catalogue, issued in second edition in 1902. They offered frost-resisting glazed and unglazed tiles for façade revetments, roof tiles, including ridge-tiles of various shapes, as well as large variety of architectural sculpture, such as columns, pillars, lunettes, lintels, banisters, arches, friezes and parapets. Ceramics for interior use were also quite varied. Flat tiles for floors and walls were often designed with multi-tile ornaments of various shapes. Their ceramics, which were suitable for decorating large surfaces, their fireplaces as well as ornamental vessels were made for the elegant urban interiors of the bourgeoisie. The Magic of Bigot The elegant and well-shaped objects by Bigot, decorated with varied figural and floral motifs and covered with colourful glazes of warm tone provide a unique aesthetic experience. Similar pieces to the ones shown in the present exhibition can be found on the facades of several Parisian apartment buildings and palaces. The architectural ceramics of Alexandre Bigot were made in various historical styles as well as in the style of Art Nouveau, but he never really constrained himself to one style. For him, the challenge was the material and the glazes. The magic of his ceramic objects lies in the glazes which cover his daring and exotic shapes, often flowing down or intentionally blotty, other times appearing in deep tones, or gleaming in thick layers. Most architectural elements used in the pavilion assembled for the Paris World’s Fair were designed for two buildings by Jules Aimé Lavirotte from Lyon (1864-1924), both still standing in the seventh district of Paris.
Budapest
Masters of Art Nouveau in the Collection of the Museum of Applied Arts
Dates:24/05/2013-31/08/2014
The exhibition of the Art Nouveau collection of the Museum of Applied Arts, which met with success in the Musei Capitolini in Rome this spring, is on display in Budapest from 24 May, 2013. The Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest, which came into being modelling the Victoria and Albert Museum, is one of the earliest and most significant institutions in Europe among such museums. Feeling enthusiastic about the success of the Paris Universal Exposition 1867 it was founded in 1872 as the second national museum of Hungary. Ödön Lechner’s architectural work the museum’s Art Nouveau palace, which dominates the townscape, was finished in 1896. The Museum’s Art Nouveau collection is of great importance. The planned acquisition already started on the occasion of the Paris Universal Exposition 1889 and reached its summit at the Paris Universal Exposition 1900. This work could be thanked to the director Jenő Radics who was even more provident than the model museum in London and recognised the aims of Secessionism. He primarily wanted to present the artistic results of England and France to the public, the countries seen as the cradle for modern art movements, as well as the modern artists of Germany and Scandinavia. Due to this effort, the museum obtained notable pieces, such as the glassware of the Tiffany company that is in a class of its own today, the most beautiful works of the German Jugendstil, the tapestries of the Scherrebek weaving school based on the designs of Otto Eckman as well as Danish and Swedish porcelains. The such acquired artefacts, which represented the contemporary tendencies, were presented to the Hungarian public through the museum’s own exhibitions inspiring the Hungarian designers and producers. This is how Louis Comfort Tiffany’s glassware made by lustre techniques, which were exhibited in Budapest, influenced the artistic work of the Hungarian Zsolnay ceramic-manufactory. Over and above universal masterpieces, the Museum of Applied Arts also purchased contemporary Hungarian artefacts year after year. The main emphasis of the programme 2013 of the Museum of Applied Arts is to display this internationally significant Art Nouveau collection both to the national and international public. Part of the Hungarian-Italian Cultural Year 2013 this spring the Museum of Applied Arts organised a large-scale exhibition displaying almost 100 objects in the Musei Capitolini in Rome, which exhibition can now be seen in the Üllői street building. It represents the technological and artistic innovations of the heyday of Secessionism with outstanding artefacts from the period between the Paris Universal Exposition 1889 and the Turin Universal Exposition of Decorative Art 1911 and shows the influences among the different artistic fields and among the artists from different nationalities. The glass and ceramic objects –masterworks of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Émile Gallé, the Daum brothers and the Zsolnay factory- which form the main part of the exhibition is enriched by jewels (René Lalique) and tapestries (József Rippl-Rónai, Otto Eckmann). Further relevance of the exhibition is given by the fact that Art Nouveau objects are continuously uploaded to the institution’s recently launched online collection database, in the course of the Partage Plus digitisation project which is sponsored by the European Union. The Museum of Applied Arts digitise more thousand pieces of its own European ranking Art Nouveau collection as well as outstanding Art Nouveau buildings of Hungary, which will be made available even through the Europeana cultural web database. Also in the framework of the Partage Plus project, a 360 degree virtual tour of the exhibition was also created, which can be accessed via this link.
 
Turner's Champion: Ruskin and his favourite Modern Painter

Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelites
Dates:30/07/2014-30/07/2014
Stephen Wildman, Director of the Ruskin Library at Lancaster University, has recently produced an edition of Ruskin’s writing about the Pre-Raphaelites. In this talk he will look at Ruskin’s close involvement with the Pre-Raphaelite movement, from his public support for the early paintings of Holman Hunt and Millais to his patronage of Rossetti and Elizabeth Siddal and in later years his lasting friendship with Edward Burne-Jones. Through his series of pamphlets entitled Academy Notes, Ruskin was instrumental in the huge success of Pre-Raphaelitism during the 1850s, always commending artists who based their work on a close observation of nature, but he also admired (and purchased) the imaginative Dantesque watercolours of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Hunt’s Light of the World he regarded as one of the greatest sacred paintings of all time, while it was in contrast with Burne-Jones’s exhibits at the Grosvenor Gallery in 1877 that he famously took issue with Whistler. No booking required: free, unticketed. Hawthornden Lecture Theatre - Gardens Entrance (Scottish National Gallery)
 
John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
Dates:04/07/2014-28/09/2014
John Ruskin (1819-1900) is renowned as the greatest British art critic of the nineteenth century and the champion of Turner, but his role as an artist remains relatively little known. He was however an outstanding draughtsman and watercolour painter, who especially took inspiration from the natural world and architectural subjects. This exhibition will illustrate, with the finest examples, the range and quality of his drawn and painted work. Gothic palaces in Venice, wild and spectacular Scottish and Alpine landscapes, and minutely defined and brilliantly coloured birds and plants will all be highlights of the show. The loans will chiefly come from the key UK and US collections (both public and private), and the exhibition is a prestigious collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. It is especially fitting that John Ruskin: Artist and Observer should be showcased in Edinburgh, as Ruskin came from a Scottish family, visited Scotland many times, and was a passionate advocate for the beauty of its landscapes and literary heritage. Key episodes in his public and private life were enacted here. A major, scholarly catalogue complementing the exhibition is to be published by the National Gallery of Canada.
