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.

Rossetti's Obsession Images of Jane Morris
Dates:04/10/2014-04/01/2015
Jane Morris (née Burden) was the wife of William Morris, and the favoured model of Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In his maturity Rossetti drew and painted Jane with an obsessional intensity and she was cast in many literary and mythological roles, including Dante's Beatrice, Pandora, Proserpine and Astarte. Whether in direct or symbolic guise, Jane's features are depicted with a sombre intensity that offer a glimpse into Rossetti's troubled soul. The exhibition, marking the centenary of Jane's death, brings together compelling and rarely seen drawings and pastel studies of Jane by Rossetti. The exhibition also features images of Jane as herself and explores her life and interests beyond modelling. Jane Morris (1839-1914) was a talented embroiderer, linguist and musician and played a role in the family business Morris & Co. The recent publication of her letters (The Collected Letters of Jane Morris, edited by Jan Marsh and Frank C. Sharp, 2012), gives an unparalleled insight into her interests and personality, balancing the sullen and silent impression that Rossetti's paintings have immortalised. Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) was the leading member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. His depictions of Jane ensured that her face became the iconic image of Pre-Raphaelite womanhood. A touring exhibition in partnership with Bradford Museums and Galleries. The exhibition is kindly supported by Farrow & Ball, Islington. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

Vienna
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec The Path to Modernism
Dates:16/10/2014-25/01/2015

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.

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.
