La Femme dans l’Art Nouveau
Dates:01/02/2017-30/12/2017

Ce courant artistique né à la fin du 19e siècle, s'exprime dans tous les domaines des arts décoratifs. La "petite estampe", qu'est la carte postale, devient un lieu d'expression incontournable pour les grands illustrateurs tels Alfons Mucha ou Raphaël Kirchner. Thème centrale, "la Femme" s'y décline à l'infini sensuelle et mystérieuse mais aussi moderne et moqueuse sous les traits de la parisienne dont la figure se construit à cette époque

Chicago
L’affichomania : the passion for french posters
Dates:11/02/2017-07/01/2018

L’Affichomania: The Passion for French Posters features approximately 50 posters by the five grand masters of the medium: Jules Chéret, Eugène Grasset, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Alphonse Mucha. The posters date from 1875 to 1910, the exuberant era in France known as the Belle Époque. These pioneering artists reigned in Paris during this period of artistic proliferation, defining a never-before-seen, and never forgotten, art form. Bright and bold and found everywhere along the boulevards of fin-de-siècle Paris, the color poster was a brilliant fusion of art and commerce. It advertised cigarette papers and milk, immortalized stage stars and bohemian cabarets, and won the adoration of passersby and art collectors. Subject as it was to wind, rain, and being covered up by posters from rival firms, the ephemeral poster nonetheless became the subject of passionate collecting in its own time. The poster craze, known as affichomanie, revolved around the acquisition of these posters, from buying and selling special editions to stealthy removals from walls and kiosks. Drawn from the Driehaus Collection of Fine and Decorative Arts, the posters on view feature such iconic images as Steinlen’s Le Chat Noir and Lautrec’s Moulin Rouge: La Goulue. Each of the five artists will be featured in one of the period galleries in the Museum, allowing guests to explore the artists’ individual style and compare them with their contemporaries.

Japonisme in Emile Gallé’s Work
Dates:03/04/2017-31/03/2018

With the opening of Japan near the end of the Edo period, ukiyo-e, ceramics, and other Japanese art objects crossed the seas. They had a powerful impact on Europe, where a fashion for things Japanese sprang up in many countries. The elegant use of color and the bold compositions found in those works had a profound influence on the birth of Impressionism and Art Nouveau, a fin de siècle movement to reform the decorative arts. The phenomenon we now refer to as Japonisme is strongly evident in the work of Emile Gallé, a standard bearer for Art Nouveau and a glass artist born in the city of Nancy, in eastern France. The distinctive world of his works, with a profusion of many-colored flowers in bloom and grasshoppers and dragonflies soaring about, is modeled on the natural world and admiration for the beauty of the changing seasons. In the background to the birth of that highly original Gallé style we can see his passionate regard for Japanese art. In this exhibition, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the opening of the Kitazawa Museum of Art, we present his works related to Japonisme and other masterpieces from our Gallé collection, one of the finest in the world.

Polished to Perfection: Japanese Cloisonné from the Collection of Donald K. Gerber and Sueann E. Sherry
Dates:28/05/2017-04/02/2018

The 1830s marked the beginning of a renaissance in Japanese cloisonné production. Though small objects incorporating enamels were produced in Japan prior to the 19th century, a new generation of artisans developed techniques that enabled the creation of three-dimensional vessels, greater flexibility in surface design, and a number of different enameling styles. During the “golden age” of Japanese cloisonné production (approximately 1880–1910), intricate decorations, sophisticated use of color, expanding varieties of form, and flawless surface finishes became the hallmarks of Japanese cloisonné wares. Polished to Perfection presents approximately 150 works from the collection of Donald K. Gerber and Sueann E. Sherry. Built over the course of more than four decades, the collection contains works crafted by the most accomplished Japanese cloisonné masters of the time including Namikawa Yasuyuki (1845–1927), Namikawa Sōsuke (1847–1919), Hayashi Kodenji (1831–1915), and Kawade Shibatarō (1856–1921). The artists represented in this exhibition raised the art of cloisonné enamel to a level of unparalleled technical and artistic perfection.

Vichy
L’Opéra de Vichy, 1898-1903, le souffle d’un art nouveau
Dates:21/06/2017-17/12/2017

L’Opéra de Vichy, ancien Théâtre du casino, mis en service en 1901 et classé monument historique moins d’un siècle plus tard, fut longtemps l’une des plus vastes salles de spectacle de province. C’est aujourd’hui encore l’une des plus belles, sinon la mieux connue. La qualité et la variété de ses ornements en font un véritable théâtre de décors. Dans les galeries du pourtour ou sous sa monumentale coupole lumineuse, ferronneries, mosaïques, stucs et pochoirs déclinent à profusion un répertoire de fleurs, de masques et d’instruments de musique, qui tient de l’Art nouveau, autant que du japonisme et du symbolisme. Pour éclairer cet ensemble exceptionnel, l’exposition réunit environ trois cents pièces, pour la plupart inédites et provenant de diverses collections publiques et particulières : dessins, plans, photographies anciennes, livres d’art, éléments de mobilier, objets divers, etc.
