Güell Year

In 2018 is Güell Year, the year of Eusebi Güell i Bacigalupi (Barcelona, December 15, 1846 - July 9, 1918). A unique occasion that the Palau Güell of the Diputació de Barcelona wants to take advantage of in order to pay homage and to claim the figure of its promoter, a leading figure in Barcelona and Catalonia in the last third of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Victor Horta and Brussels

This exhibition, organised by the Directorate of Monuments and Sites in the Brussels Capital Region, provides an overall introduction to the work of architect Victor Horta with a presentation of his major works built in Brussels. It invites visitors to discover the secrets behind the creative work of one of Art Nouveau's greatest artists, a movement which revolutionised European spatial and architectural concepts at the dawn of the 20th century. A series of photographs, documents and plans highlight the value of this extraordinary legacy.

Horta, Solvay et Les Autres : Quand La Belgique Imposait Ses Talents A Ixelles Et Saint-Gilles

Au 19ème siècle, la réputation de la Belgique faisait de Bruxelles un point de rencontre fastueux. À la pointe de l'industrie métallurgique, premier producteur de voitures, sollicité de partout pour la construction ferroviaire, le pays attirait les grands de ce monde. À l'invitation d’Ernest Solvay -l'un de nos brillants capitaines d'industrie-, les prix Nobel (dont Einstein) se réunissaient, par exemple, à l'hôtel Métropole. Le meilleur exemple de ce dynamisme est la naissance de l'Art Nouveau grâce au génial architecte Victor Horta. C’est à Ixelles et Saint-Gilles que l’on peut voir certains des plus belles de ses réalisations : Hôtel Tassel, Maison Sander Pierron, Maison Vinck , Hôtel Max Hallet, Hôtel Solvay, musée Horta... Un émerveillement architectural ! Pas d’entrée prévue. Les mercredis pairs : FR/ENG Les mercredis impairs : FR/NL Gratuit Avec le soutien de la Direction des Monuments et Sites de Bruxelles

VIENNA 1900 : Klimt – Moser – Gerstl – Kokoschka

The Leopold Museum is home to the largest and most eminent collection of works by Egon Schiele as well as to an equally unparalleled compilation of masterpieces from Viennese art around 1900. Celebrating the anniversary year on the theme of Viennese Modernism, the museum will present select works by the main exponents of Viennese Jugendstil Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) and Koloman Moser (1868–1918) as well as by the ground-breaking Expressionists Richard Gerstl (1883–1908) and Oskar Kokoschka (1868–1980) from 18th January in a completely new juxtaposition. The exhibition will feature chief works by Gustav Klimt, including Death and Life (1911/15) and the 1900 lakescape On Lake Attersee, as well as Kolo Moser’s paintings, such as Venus in the Grotto (1914). The presentation will also showcase outstanding examples of design around 1900, including furniture, artisan craftwork and posters, created by the “artist of a thousand talents” and co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte. Following successful exhibitions at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt and the Neue Galerie in New York, the radical works by the proto-Expressionist Richard Gerstl will be shown once again at the Leopold Museum, which is home to the most comprehensive Gerstl collection. Among the works presented by Gerstl will be two icons of Viennese Modernism, his two large-scale self-portraits. Oskar Kokoschka, the enfant terrible of the Viennese art scene of the early 20th century, will also be in the spotlight of this presentation with extraordinary paintings, first and foremost his pioneering work Self-Portrait, One Hand Touching the Face from 1918/19, which is both an expression of the artist’s self-questioning and doubts as well as a symbol for Austrian art embarking on a new era.

Stairway to Klimt - Eye to Eye with Klimt

To mark the centenary of the death of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) we invite museum visitors to take a closer look at his unique paintings displayed twelve metres above ground where they form an integral part of the sumptuous décor of the Main Staircase. As in 2012, we will again erect a huge bridge weighing four tons across the Main Staircase to allow visitors to access this magnificent pictorial cycle. The paintings, commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph and executed by Gustav Klimt, his brother Ernst and their friend, Franz Matsch, depict important periods of art history. Nuda Veritas on show in the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities Concurrently with the Klimt Bridge, the Kunsthistorisches Museum is showcasing one of Gustav Klimt’s masterpieces: his celebrated Nuda Veritas (1899). The painting comes from the estate of the critic Hermann Bahr, a dedicated friend and defender in print of the Vienna Secessionists. With its first-ever visit to the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities – where it is displayed in the gallery housing Polykleitos’ Doryphoros – the painting creates a novel and fascinating space of aesthetic experience.
