Victor Horta, 1861-1947 : l’homme, l’architecte, l’Art nouveau
Dates:01-01-2050-01-01-2999
Victor Horta est un nom qui résonne à nos oreilles. Il est connu non seulement des historiens de l'art et des architectes mais également du grand public, ne fut-ce que parce qu'un billet de banque lui fut consacré. L'architecture du XXe siècle fut marquée par l'empreinte du célèbre architecte belge. La maison qu'il a construite pour Emile Tassel à Bruxelles est souvent considérée comme la première habitation art nouveau. Il ouvrit ainsi la voie à une nouvelle architecture définie, entre autres, par une rénovation irrépressible. A travers cet ouvrage, richement illustré, Michèle Goslar nous livre une image unique de Victor Horta perçu à travers ses constructions et sa vie privée et met ainsi en lumière le caractère peu connu de l'architecte. La publication présentera de façon chronologique la vie et l'oeuvre de ce génie de larchitecture que fut Victor Horta. Six cent illustrations viendront enrichir le texte et offriront au lecteur une découverte exceptionnelle de son art et de son existence. Bien qu'il sagisse dune biographie, cet ouvrage traitera aussi de nouvelles données en histoire de l'art et en architecture. Cette biographie ne donne pas seulement, pour la première fois, un aperçu très complet des réalisations d'Horta. Elle offre au lecteur attentif un regard sur sa vie dont seuls des fragments étaient connus jusqu'à présent. Il sagit dune plus-value bien réelle car elle conduit à une lecture correcte de son oeuvre. Mon étoile était pâlie, mais pas mon architecture, je pense, ainsi que Horta, de retour à la rédaction de ses Mémoires, en 1939, le constatait avec des sentiments mêlés. Et, dans les faits, son architecture n'est pas du tout réduite à une note en bas de page dans l'histoire, tout au contraire. Depuis l'an 2000, quatre de ses hôtels particuliers  Tassel, Solvay, Van Eetvelde et sa propre maison - ont été inscrits au patrimoine de l'humanité dans la liste de l'Unesco. Cet hommage implique déjà en soi le rallumage de l'étoile Horta au firmament. Cette biographie lui restitue toute sa lumière. Pages: 560 Format: 32.5 x 24.5 cm 600 images Couverture reliée
 
II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25-06-2015-28-06-2015

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.

In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.

A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

 
La soprano française Nathalie Dessay revisite le style 1900 à travers la pochette de son disque
Dates:01-01-2050-01-01-2999
De toute évidence, et malgré le mélange de lettrages qui fait se côtoyer Art Nouveau et Art Déco, la pochette de ce disque revisite le style 1900. Le portrait, dessiné d’après une photo de l’artiste, imite explicitement le trait de l’affichiste Mucha, et la chanteuse devient ainsi la petite sœur de Sarah Bernhardt dans Théodora ou La Dame aux Camélias. En même temps, la posture dans laquelle elle est immortalisée a quelque chose de typiquement « dessayen » : ce poing sur le front appartient au répertoire gestuel de la Dessay. Au traitement infligé au graphisme Art Nouveau répond le sort fait à la musique de Debussy. source: Laurent Bury, http://www.forumopera.com Plus d'informations: http://www.natalie-dessay.com

Rene Binet Art Nouveau Industrial and Architectural Designs - ebook
Dates:01-01-2050-01-01-2999
his first volume is dedicated to the 60 sketches of his industrial and architectural designs as found in the Esquisses décoratives. The sketches include a shelter, clips, rings, wardrobe, balcony, bench, jewelry, frame trim, electric buttons, decorative bricks, tiling, ceramic, capitals, keys, gates (wood and grilled), nails, corbels, towers, country decorations, industrial signs, finials, stairway, printed fabrics, ridgepole decorations, wrought iron, ironworks, fountain, frieze, weather vanes, door-knockers, lead inlay, gardens, lanters, chandeliers, showcases, stores, marquetry, embossed metal, mosaic, wallpaper, mast bases, hinges, ceilings, door plates, stencil, porch, door, rinceau, rosettes, sgraffito, seats, pedestals, carpet, needlepoint tapestry, trellis, tympanum, stained glass and arches and arcs. René Binet was born in Chaumont, Yonne [Burgundy region] on the 14th of October, 1866 to Savinien Joseph Binet, a railway tracklayer and Marie Grosset, a housekeeper. He attended the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA), from 1886 until about 1892, and was a student of Victor Laloux. Binet was an architect, decorator, and painter. Perhaps his most culturally significant contribution was his design of the main entry for the Paris Exhibition of 1900, a commission that he won. He is considered an artist of La Belle Epoque, executing his designs in the style of Art Nouveau. Two Paris addresses are associated with the artist: 6 rue de l’Abbaye and 33 rue Bonaparte. According to the Musée d’Orsay, René Binet “discovered Italy after winning, in 1893, the Chaudesaigues prize, which enabled young architects to spend two years there”. Along with Italy, Binet also traveled to Sicily, Algeria and Spain. The museum also attributes these trips to his interest in watercolor painting. According to the museum, he traveled frequently which provided him some relief from his rheumatism. In 1903, an exhibition, at the Galerie Paul Durand-Ruel in Paris, featured his watercolor paintings. His work was also greatly influenced by the research and illustrations of Ernst Haeckel. Gustave Geffroy, in his forward to Esquisses décoratives, notes that Binet viewed the Clathrocanium reginae as the most beautiful and a perfect representation of the richness and logic of the Radiolaria family. Geffroy also points out that it is the Clathrocanium reginae that inspired the design of the Porte Monumentale [main entrance] of the Exposition Universelle of 1900. You can see illustrations of these geometric and microscopic sea creature skeletons in the next volume of Binet’s works or in the separate edition of Haeckel’s works from delsc. Binet died in 1911 in Ouchy, Switzerland. A second volume includes some of architectural projects such as the Porte Monumentale for the Exposition Universelle of 1900, the Printemps department store and his many watercolor paintings from Versailles and the Trianons.
 
Eugene Grasset: A Passion for Design - ebook
Dates:01-01-2050-01-01-2999
This book is focused on Eugene Grasset who can be called The Father of Art Nouveau and who is also known to have had a great influence on Art Deco. Information about his work, life and and over 150 images are included in this book from http://www.ctgpublishing.com. Grasset was labeled by his contemporaries as a Universal Artist for several reasons. He understood a variety of materials, how each required a different approach and how each could be applied to the different branches of the decorative arts. Those who enjoy cubism may find themselves paying some tribute to Grasset’s geometric interpretations of nature. Grasset had many students including M.P. Verneuil, Mathurin Méheut, Augusto Giacometti, Paul Follot, and Paul Berthon. Louis Rhead has been quoted as owing his career to Grasset. Both Pierre Jeanneret and Le Corbusier were influenced by Grasset, the later being credited as a founder of modern architecture.
 
Ernst Haeckel Inspired by Nature - ebook
Dates:01-01-2050-01-01-2999
Ernst Haeckel was a doctor, marine zoologist, botanist, photographer, and an artist. He was well respected but controversial because of his beliefs in evolution. According to Edward Thomas Browne of the Linnean Society, Haeckel is responsible for many common zoology terms such as: Ontogeny, Phylum, Protozoa, Protista, Metazoa, Plankton, Coelom, and Gastrula. [...]he was a prodigious and vigorous worker. Students flocked to his classrooms at Jena, and his courses of semi-popular lectures on Evolution were fully attended by all sorts and conditions of people, from far and near. In the prime of life he was a fine, handsome man, with a strong but charming personality, fearless in expressing his Evolutionary views, which were by no means favourably received by the multitude, and attempts were even made to eject him from his Chair of Zoology. This publication includes biographical information from many sources along with 35 Plates that illustrate Radiolaria from his 1862 publication, Die Radiolarien (Rhizopoda radiaria) eine Monographie, a few from Report on the Radiolaria collected by H.M.S. Challenger during the years 1873-76 and ten plates from from Kunstformen der Natur. Creating Something Grand from Something Microscopic In addition to his works, you will also find highlighted a work by Rene Binet, the entrance of the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900. Binet modeled the entrance after the Clathrocanium reginae. When you consider that microscopic sea fauna inspired a structure that used about 192 tonnes of metal and cost about 676,000 French fr., it certainly is worth viewing these illustration to see how they might be of inspiration to you. Radiolaria are silica secreting zooplankton. Their size can range from about 100 micrometers to what is considered a very large size of 1-2 mm. The weight gained during maturation of a single Radiolarian is 0.1 micrograms. The dimensions of the Clathrocanium reginae are, in millimeters: cephalis 0.03 long and 0.04 wide with a thorax that measures 0.08 long and 0.12 wide. An image is included in the upcoming pages.
