Visiting Masterpiece Gustav Klimt’s "Adam and Eve"
Dates:17.1.2015-27.4.2015

For the first time in its history, the MFA will exhibit a painting by Gustav Klimt—among the most important artists of the early 20th century.

Adam and Eve (1917–18) will be on loan from the Belvedere Museum in Vienna as part of the MFA’s Visiting Masterpiece series, giving visitors a taste of the artist’s signature style, including his sensuous approach to the nude, his bold experiments with pattern, color, and finish, and his exploration of human consciousness and desire. The work will be juxtaposed with the MFA’s life-sized study of a nude couple, Two Nudes (Lovers) (1913), painted by Klimt’s Viennese friend and colleague, Oskar Kokoschka. No more than five years separate the two paintings, which share many features—ambitious scale, daring experiments with form and finish, and, above all, a fascination with sexuality. Each is, in its own way, a product of Freud’s Vienna, but also of a singular artist with a singular vision.

Budapest
Lechner, A Creative Genius
Dates:19.11.2014-31.5.2015

In 2014 the Museum commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. To mark this anniversary, the Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest are jointly organizing an international conference and an exhibition.

This exhibition presents the whole scope of the work of the architect Ödön Lechner. Special attention is paid to five major works, nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Site status: the Kecskemét City Hall, the parish church of Budapest-Kőbánya, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Institute of Geology, and the Postal Savings Bank. Visitors can familiarise themselves with these through the architect’s original plans and drawings, as well as period and modern photographs. Working drawings of the ornaments so crucial to Lechner’s work, the publications which inspired him, and examples of the Zsolnay ceramic in which they were realized are also presented. One of the rooms evokes the world of the Japan Coffee House, Lechner’s second home, another acommodates a panoramic movie of his major works.

Le vitrail: comment prendre soin d'un patrimoine fragile?
Dates:8.7.2015-10.7.2015

Les vitraux sont un patrimoine fragile, mince paroi de verre et de plomb qui clôt les baies des nombreux édifices civils et religieux depuis le Haut Moyen Âge. Leur fragilité, qui les soumet, sans grande défense, aux intempéries, à la pollution, parfois au vandalisme, a de tout temps nécessité des interventions régulières d’entretien, de réparation, de restauration, souvent de remplacement. Au-delà des opérations spectaculaires de restauration où l’on applique les techniques les plus avancées de nettoyage ou de protection, les interventions plus modestes de simple entretien, de soins de base, méritent attention, car elles ont un rôle fondamental dans la préservation à long terme des verrières anciennes et modernes. Au temps où la crise économique touche de nombreux pays, il est opportun de réfléchir à une approche de conservation qui s’adapte, dans les meilleures conditions pour les œuvres, à de nouvelles contraintes financières.

The Norwegian Japonism
Dates:26.9.2014-7.4.2015

“The movement that is now spreading from Japan across Europe”

This quote from the Norwegian artist Gerhard Munthe (1849–1929) refers to one of the main trends in European art from the mid-19th century through the early decades of the 20th century.

In 1853, Japan opened its borders to the outside world after 200 years of isolation. This lead to a cult of all things Japanese among European artists – a movement labelled as Japonism from the 1860s–70s onward. This Japanese-inspired art did not constitute a style as such, but greatly influenced a number of styles in European art. In the 1880s and 1890s, Japonism became a major ingredient of the Art Nouveau style. In Norway, Art Nouveau peaked in popularity in the years between 1890 and 1910.

This exhibition looks at the connections between the Art Nouveau style, the nation-building project in Norway, and the Japonism movement as expressed in Norwegian Art Nouveau. Starting with Gerhard Munthe, considered the leading proponent of Japonism in Norway, the exhibition highlights connections between Japonism and the distinct national character of Norwegian Art Nouveau in terms of technique, range of motifs, format, and choice of materials.

L'art nouveau en Europe
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999

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.

Berlin
Jugendstil
Dates:16.9.2014-16.9.2015

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.

Winter Park, Florida
Selections from the Harry C. Sigman Collection of European and American Decorative Art
Dates:10.2.2015-10.2.2016

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
Dates:10.2.2015-10.2.2016

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.

Winter Park, Florida
Revival and Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment
Dates:21.10.2014-21.10.2015

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.

 
II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25.6.2015-28.6.2015

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.

In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.

A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

Bruxelles
L'art nouveau en Europe
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999

L'Europe de l'Ouest entière a succombé à l'Art Nouveau, mode architecturale éphémère, entre 1890 et 1910. Mais ce ne sont que quelques centaines d'immeubles qui ont été conçus par les meilleurs architectes de l'époque qui subsistent encore aujourd'hui.
Cet ouvrage est une promenade plaisante qui va de Barcelone à Ljubljana, de Turin à Helsinki et qui montre les plus belles et les plus marquantes réalisations de l'Art Nouveau en Europe.
Textes de Françoise Aubry, traduction de Chris Bourne. Photographies de Christine Bastin, Jacques Evrard, Elvire Evrard, Mark Fiennes, Janis Krastins, et Breda Mihelic.
