Akseli Gallen-Kallela - European Master - at the Helsinki Art Museum - from 23 September 2011 to 15 January 2012


Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s (1865-1931) artistic work shows boundless sensitivity and yet also a passionate desire to express. It contains both small-scale works and monumental compositions. His character was a combination of sustained political conviction and mercurial impulsiveness. He was prone to both wanderlust and homesickness. It was this weaving together of opposites that formed the core of Gallen-Kallela’s art and which suggests links with Finnish history as much as with the broad directions of modern art.
The works in the exhibition are mainly from 1884-1910, a period easily described as the peak of Gallen-Kallela’s output. It is also a period in European art history that both preceded and anticipated the forward march of abstract art. During that time Gallen-Kallela was known as an artist whose distinctive Nordic style and idiom stood apart from that of most other artists. It was possible to become familiar with his work through many exhibitions around Europe. Important critics wrote about him, and he was well known in avant-garde circles. In Finland, he was known as a leading artist of the emerging nation and as a pioneer of the visual arts.
This exhibition presents the artist’s aesthetically most brilliant peak, a selection of masterworks. After Helsinki the exhibition will be presented in Paris and Düsseldorf. It is the broadest survey of Gallen-Kallela’s art ever organised in France or Germany.
This exhibition is organised by the Helsinki Art Museum, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf.

"Melancholy and Provocation. The Egon Schiele-Project" at the Leopold Museum in Vienna - 23 September 2011 to 16 April 2012


On the occasion of its tenth anniversary, the Leopold Museum will dedicate its 2011 autumn exhibition to the oeuvre of EgonSchiele. The exhibition’s title “Melancholy and Provocation” refers primarily to the early oeuvre of the artist who died in 1918 when only 28 years of age. For Schiele‘s early chief works, which he created from 1910 when he was only 20 years old, are characterized by a strong sense of melancholy and sadness, but also by his fascination with the unusual and the ecstatic. His first solo exhibition, held at the art salon Miethke in 1911, was dominated by elegiac works, revealing a dark and mystical coloring, a melancholy subject matter as well as the artist’s radically physical manner of self-portrayal.

Brussels Heritage Days -17 & 18 September 2011


While it is relatively simple to create optimal conditions for the protection of a work of art in a museum, it is infinitely more complexwhen it comes to monuments. Monuments are constantly exposed toenvironmental conditions and quite frequently adapted to meet new needs during their existence. Besides the assignment of a building canchange as well. In these circumstances, the question is not only how to maintain it, but also to define what to maintain. The restoration and conservation are tools that contribute to the preservation of amonument or a landscape for the future.

"The Brilliance of an Era - Art Nouveau jewelry from Europe", at the Mathildenhöhe  - 21 August to 11 December 2011


This exhibition, already shown at the Leopold Museum until 25 July 2011, is to present exquisite objects from the Hessian State Museum in Darmstadt as well as from private collections. The holdings of the Hessian State Museum are based on the Arts-and-Crafts collection of the Dutch court jeweller Karel A. Citroen (*1922). Citroen began collecting in 1952, at a point in time when it was not at all fashionable to collect artisan craftwork from the Art Nouveau. By 1959, the Amsterdam-based jeweller had succeeded in bringing together several hundred objects from all over Europe, with the main focus being on jewellery. Source:www.leopoldmuseum.org

New post-graduate on Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the University of Glasgow


The University of Glasgow is offering a new post-graduate taught-degree at MA level entitled "Mackintosh, Glasgow and International Art Nouveau". This degree explores how at the turn of the last century, Glasgow artists, architects and designers actively participated in the articulation of a modern style across Europe that has since become known as International Art Nouveau. It introduces Scotland's key players in these debates such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Four but frames their contributions within a distinctly cross-continental context that takes into account key Art Nouveau centres such as Brussels, Paris, Vienna, Barcelona, Budapest, Munich, Riga etc. As Britain's only Art Nouveau city, Glasgow offers unparalleled resources for work placement opportunities and collections-based research in areas that are both local and international in orientation. Enrolment for commencement in September 2011 is now open. For more information please consult the History of Art webpage at http://www.gla.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/mackintosh/
