Art and Design in the Modern Age: selections from the Wolfsonian Collection

Art and Design in the Modern Age provides an intriguing overview of The Wolfsonian's exceptional holdings and showcases the museum's collection, which spans the period 1885 to 1945. The nearly 300 works on display provide insight into the ways design has influenced and adapted to the modern world. The installation explores the many focal points of The Wolfsonian's collection, including design-reform movements, architecture, urbanism, industrial design, transportation, world's fairs, advertising, political propaganda, and labor iconography.
Inaugurated in November 1996, this ongoing exhibition is periodically updated.

New York
New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture, including the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries

The New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture are reopening with renovated rooms and 8,000 square feet of additional gallery space—the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries—to showcase works from 1800 through the early twentieth century. The renovated galleries feature all of the Museum's most loved nineteenth-century paintings, which have been on permanent display in the past, as well as works by Bonnard, Vuillard, Soutine, Matisse, Picasso, and other early modern artists. Among the many additions are a full-room assembly of "The Wisteria Dining Room," a French art nouveau interior designed by Lucien Levy Dhurmer shortly before World War I that is the only complete example of its kind in the United States; Henry Lerolle's enormous The Organ Rehearsal (a church interior of 1885); a group of newly accessioned nineteenth-century landscape oil sketches; and a selection of rarely exhibited paintings by an international group of artists.

Museum of Catalan Modernista Art
Barcelona's first museum devoted exclusively to Modernisme opened on 19 March 2010. Containing works by leading Catalan artists, it is housed in a Modernista building at Carrer Balmes 48, designed by architect Enric Sagnier. The museum is the result of a private initiative by art collectors and gallery owners Fernando Pinós and Maria Guirao, who have assembled in an area of 1,000 square metres a total of 350 works in the fields of painting, sculpture and the decorative arts. The 42 artists represented include Gaudí, Busquets, Llimona, Arnau, Casas, Renart, Rusiñol, Gargallo and Anglada Camarassa.
The exhibition explores the history of building in the 20th century against a background of Finnish society, taking into account economic, political and technological developments. These factors have always influenced not only the volume of building but also the architectural shapes. Phenomena connected with construction are viewed from a broad perspective, and from larger to smaller; from urban planning to façade materials and interior decoration.

Prague 7-Holešovice
"L’Epopée des Slaves" d’Alfons Mucha exposée à Prague après 84 ans d’absence
« L’Epopée des Slaves », l’œuvre magistrale du maître de l’Art Nouveau, est de nouveau exposée à Prague. Mucha avait réalisé ce cycle de 20 toiles pour la capitale tchèque mais il n’y fut exposé qu’une seule fois, en 1928. C’est un événement pour Prague. Mucha avait réalisé cette œuvre comme un testament pour la ville et pour le peuple tchécoslovaque. Les 20 toiles présentent l’histoire des slaves depuis leurs origines (Les Slaves dans leur site préhistorique) jusqu’au XXe siècle (L’Apothéose des Slaves). Dans un contrat passé en 1913 avec l’américain slavophile et mécène Charles Crane, l’artiste avait promis d’offrir son Epopée à Prague à condition que cette dernière construise un bâtiment spécialement pour accueillir le cycle de 20 œuvres. Mais l’édifice ne vit jamais le jour. Depuis le 10 mai 2012, 84 ans plus tard, L’Epopée des Slaves est donc de nouveau dans la capitale tchèque. Le cycle est exposé au même endroit, dans le hall de l’ancien Palais des foires (Veletrzni Palac). Le directeur de la Galerie municipale de Prague a annoncé à l’AFP que l’exposition durerait 5 ans. « De nouveaux systèmes de chauffage, d’air conditionné et d’éclairage ont été installés afin d’assurer des conditions stables pour ces tableaux précieux ».

La Cité des enfants
Cette exposition, destinée aux enfants et à leurs familles, a pour but de sensibiliser un large public à l’architecture et à l’urbanisme bruxellois. Au programme : une découverte interactive et pédagogique de la ville et de ses composantes : les commerces, les logements, les lieux de loisirs, les bureaux, les parcs… réunis autour de quatre sections : « se loger », « apprendre », « s'amuser » et « travailler ». Une double lecture, avec plans, dessins, maquettes et photographies provenant des Archives d’Architecture Moderne, permettra d'exposer la ville aux enfants et aux adultes. A travers plusieurs jeux, les petits visiteurs pourront pleinement prendre part à l'exposition. Au centre de cette cité reconstituée, le « mini-museum » présente un focus sur une thématique ou une composante de la ville et de son patrimoine : l'urbanisme, le sgraffite, l'utopie de la ville, etc. autant de thèmes variés qui changeront périodiquement, comme dans un vrai musée. La pièce centrale de l'exposition - un espace consacré à la maison avec une maquette géante - permettra à petits et grands d’apprendre et de découvrir les éléments extérieurs et intérieurs de nos habitations : lucarne, balustre, œil de bœuf, etc. pour s'initier au vocabulaire de l'architecture. S'ils les retrouvent, la maison s'illumine ! Exposition réalisée par la Fondation pour l’Architecture avec le soutien du Ministre-Président en charge des Monuments et des Sites et du Secrétaire d’État en charge de l’Urbanisme à la Région de Bruxelles-Capitale.

Masters of Art Nouveau in the Collection of the Museum of Applied Arts
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.
The Bigot Pavilion – Art Nouveau Architectural Ceramics from Paris
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.

La mostra Paolo Antonio Paschetto. Artista, grafico e decoratore fra liberty e déco al Casino dei Principi, la prima monografica tenutasi a Roma dal 1938, basandosi sul ricchissimo materiale inedito conservato presso gli eredi dell’artista a Torre Pellice, intende proporre al pubblico la figura poco nota di un importante artista formatosi nell’ambiente romano del primo ‘900 che nella Città svolse una intensa carriera di artista decoratore fino agli anni successivi alla proclamazione della Repubblica Italiana, della quale disegnò l’Emblema identificativo ufficiale adottato il 5 maggio del 1948. Attraverso le sue diverse sezioni dedicate ai grandi cicli pittorici laici e religiosi, ai modelli decorativi per gli interni, di squisito gusto art nouveau, all’attività di progettazione di oggetti d’arredo e d’uso, alle vetrate, fino alla produzione grafica nell’ambito della pubblicità e della filatelia, la mostra intende riproporre la versatile attività dell’artista, chiarendone gli ambiti operativi e ritrovando in ogni aspetto l’intenzionalità estetica e il rigore progettuale che lo rendono a pieno titolo un protagonista della cultura artistica italiana del primo Novecento.
Taxile Doat – Maître des Grand Feu
Ce céramiste, surnommé "le maître du grand feu", a travaillé de 1877 à 1905 à la Manufacture nationale de Sèvres, avant d'ouvrir son propre atelier. Ses recherches sur la porcelaine, le grès et la glaçure, ainsi que son désir de renouveler les décors et les formes des vases sous l'influence naturaliste et japonaise font de lui l'un des acteurs majeurs du renouveau de la céramique en France au début du 20ème siècle. Il reçoit la médaille d'or à l'Exposition universelle de 1889. En 1909, il part enseigner la céramique aux Etats Unis, à l'académie des arts de St Louis, à la demande d'Edouard Gardner Lewis. Il revient définitivement en France en 1915. Doat publia en 1905 un livre, "Les céramiques de grand feu", dans lequel il explique ses recherches, notamment sur un type de décor dit de "pâte sur pâte", ainsi que de nouveaux types de glaçure. L'exposition du studio du musée Hetjens propose un ensemble de pièces de ce type, conservées dans une collection privée. ON peut admirer quelques exemples de son travail au musée d'Orsay, comme par exemple cette courge, qui n'est pas sans évoquer des verreries d'Emile Gallé sur ce thème, ou au musée des arts décoratifs. Taxile Doat est également présent dans les collections du V&A de Londres et dans des musées américains. Source: Véronique Baudouin, dans OFF, le blog du Musée de l'Ecole de Nancy.
