During the boom years in the second half of the nineteenth century, a multitude of mansions and splendid public buildings sprang up around Vienna´s magnificent boulevard, the Ringstrasse. In summer 2015, the Belvedere will be dedicating the exhibition Klimt and the Ringstrasse to those charismatic painters who adorned the Ring´s buildings and shaped the style of their era. Starting with the oeuvre of "painter prince" Hans Makart, it traces developments up to the triumph of the young Gustav Klimt and his painters´ collective, the Künstler-Compagnie. Reconstructions of entire decorative ensembles will present the dazzling lifestyle during the Ringstrasse era to visitors. The exhibition will not only feature sensuous, narrative artworks, but also examples of the young Klimt´s art, which have never been shown to the public before.

Exhibition: Edvard Munch. Archetypes
From 06.10.2015 to 17.01.2016
Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid
Organised by Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in collaboration with the Munch Museet of Oslo
The Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza, in collaboration with the Munch Museet of Oslo, will host the first major exhibition to be held on the Norwegian artist in Madrid since 1984. The presentation will examine Edvard Much´s long and prolific career through eighty works by the painter, half of them from the collection of the Munch Museet.
Structured by themes, it will explore the representation of the human figure in various settings: the coast, the patient´s room, the abyss, the green room, the forest, night, the artist´s studio. In order to show the radical nature of his artistic language, the exhibition will study the interplay between flat and sinuous forms, the ambiguity of opposites, symbolic colour, the expressive deformation of the body and the use of experimental textures and engraving techniques. Edvard Munch will ultimately analyse the artistic strategies used by the painter to orient space towards a psychic dimension and convert his compositions into a lasting truth that symbolises the human condition.
Art study days: Edvard Munch
On 22 and 23 October 2015, the Museum´s Department of Modern Painting is organising art study days in connection with the temporary exhibition on Edvard Munch. Aimed at students and teachers, as well as the general public, they will take a new look at Munch´s work as well as vindicating his status as one of the founders of modernity.

Exhibition: L'École de Nancy and the Political and Social Questions of its Period
From 09.10.2015 to 25.01.2016
Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nancy and Musée de l'École de Nancy
Organised by Museum des Beaux-Arts de Nancy and Museum de l'École de Nancy
The exhibition "Only Those Who Fight Survive: L´École de Nancy and the Political and Social Questions of its Period" presents l´École de Nancy through a heretofore unseen prism: that of the political commitment of Emile Galle, Victor Prouve and other members of the Art Nouveau movement in Nancy.
The relationship between art and politics is explained to a certain extent by the search for total and social art yet also by its historical context.
Firstly, visitors discover the particular dimension that Art Nouveau had in Nancy due to Lorraine´s convulsive history, the trauma that arose from losing territories annexed by Germany in 1871 and Nancy´s role as a border town and last bastion against the German threat. Then the show covers the decisive action of Émile Gallé, l´École de Nancy´s first president.
Several works illustrate his stance in favour of oppressed peoples such as the Armenians, Irish, or Romanian Jews. His commitment in the Dreyfus affair went beyond the arts. Here, we discover the intellectual Gallé and his public and political involvement. Victor Prouvé, who would succeed Gallé
as president of l´École de Nancy, had a diferent political sensibility, influenced by anarchism and his friend Charles Keller, an old communard. The exhibition reveals Victor Prouvé´s evolution and his ornamentation for buildings, in which his republican commitment is apparent. This led him to be elected municipal counsellor in 1912.
Finally, the last section covers the venture of the Nancy People´s University and People´s House. Members and sympathisers of l´École de Nancy joined his educational project and participated in several initiatives.
The show, which has received the certification of "Exhibition of National Interest"
from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, lets us discover the intellectual modernity of l´École de Nancy, which mobilised on issues that are still topical today.
