Oscar Wilde's Salomé: Illustrating death and desire
Dates:7.2.2015-10.5.2015

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish writer and poet who became one of London’s most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Wilde’s retelling of the beheading of John the Baptist became the controversial play, Salomé, and was banned on the London stage in 1893. Illustrators have been attracted to its rhythmic prose and subject matter ever since. Oscar Wilde’s Salomé: Illustrating Death and Desire presents the complete sets of the first and the most recent illustrations inspired by tragedy, including lithographs by symbolist artis Aubrey Vincent Beardsley (1872–1898) and engravings by Barry Moser (b. 1940). Books and periodicals featuring illustrations by Louis Jou, André Derain, and Valenti Angelo, among others, will also be on view.

Nancy, capitale française de l’Art Nouveau

Autour de 1900, Nancy acquiert une notoriété mondiale grâce au mouvement Art Nouveau. Les artistes de l’Ecole de Nancy ont puisé leur inspiration dans l’univers végétal et le monde des sciences pour réinventer le décor de la ville et de la vie quotidienne. Architecture, mobilier, verrerie… ils ont laissé de nombreux témoignages de leur talent dans la ville. Hôtels particuliers, brasserie, banques, quartiers… l’Art Nouveau est partout !

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.

Secrets of Tiffany Glassmaking
Dates:4.9.2012-4.9.2020

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) began his work in glass with the same tools and ingredients that had been used by artisans for thousands of years before him. Tiffany took the science of glassmaking, however, and elevated it to an art form of new brilliance and beauty. Under his watch, teams of talented designers and craftspeople translated Tiffany’s all-encompassing vision into some of the most memorable glass creations of our time. Tiffany’s studio system was not a simple enterprise; he needed specialized employees—a hierarchy of artists and artisans—to accomplish his goals. This exhibition, updated and reinstalled on September 4, 2012, addresses the processes that Tiffany’s many companies used to produce everything from glass mosaics and molded buttons to leaded-glass lamps and windows.

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.

Winter Park, Florida
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.

Glasgow
The work of Philip Webb
Dates:7.5.2015-7.5.2015

This lecture is being offered as a contribution to the centenary of the death of Philip Webb (1831-1915), architect of William Morris’s Red House, the National Trust’s Standen, and a whole group of quietly influential houses. He had one important Scottish client, the owners of the Arisaig Estate, and in the North of England he was responsible for major works for the family of the industrialist, Sir Isaac Lowthian Bell, around Northallerton, and for George Howard, 9th Earl of Carlisle, painter and collector as well as landowner, for whom he did work on the Naworth Castle and Castle Howard estates. Above all, however, he partnered William Morris in the founding of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and, while Morris acted as the spokesman, Webb worked out how to repair old buildings reliably and with as little damage to their authenticity as possible.

Dr. Peter Burman is an architectural historian who has been studying Webb for many years, organised the only conference ever held on Webb and his work, and has produced two major articles on him with more in preparation. He sees Webb as a understated but nevertheless major figure both in the early development of the British Arts & Crafts Movement and in the early history of a responsible British ‘heritage movement’. He is a Guardian of the SPAB and in Scotland he is currently chairman of the Falkland Stewardship Trust, whose responsibilities include a major 19th century country house, and a trustee and Archivist of Hopetoun House. He acts as an arts and heritage consultant across a spectrum of special places.
