Exhibition Victor Prouvé - The Ecole de Nancy years, May 16th - September 20th, 2008 in Nancy

 (2008)


As a versatile artist, Victor Prouvé probably was the most complete Nancean originator of arts renovation around 1900. Painter, sculptor, and drawer all at a time, he was also a precious co-worker for Gallé, Majorelle and Vallin ; he took an interest in photography, poster, jewelry, textile and leather, and took over from Emile Gallé as President of the Ecole de Nancy. From now, only few aspects of his numerous talents had been touched on in exhibitions or publications. The 150th anniversary of his birth gives the opportunity to extol the artist's multiple talents, one of which being a fertile creator believing in l'Art dans Tout (Art in Everything). Three exhibitions, conceived as one event, wil be presented from Mai to September 2008 in the museums of Nancy and will bring a rich and renewed view of Prouvé's work, with previously unexhibited pieces:


The exhibition catalogue will gather contributions of specialists of each discipline (art historians, museum curators) and will deal with the whole career of Victor Prouvé. It will be the first content book published about the artist in the last fifty years.

See exhibition leaflet

A study day will be dedicated to Victor Prouvé's work and personality on 6th May, 2008.
