From Mucha to Grasset, an exhibition on Art Nouveau with 200 works at Venaria Reale

From April 17, 2019 to January 26, 2020, the Reggia di Venaria Reale is hosting the exhibition 'Art nouveau. The Triumph of Beauty'.

At the Royal Palace of Venaria Reale, the exhibition Art nouveau opens from April 17, 2019 to January 26, 2020. The Triumph of Beauty. With posters, paintings, sculptures, furniture and ceramics, the exhibition (with a body of 200 works) recounts the extraordinary artistic flowering that overwhelmed and changed taste in the late19th and early 20th centuries. Architecture, painting, furniture, sculpture and music are invaded by references to nature, the plant world and a new image of the female figure: in Turin it is the time ofArt Nouveau that drives academic rules and tradition out of everywhere. On display are works by artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Eugène Grasset, Georges de Feure, Théophile Steinlen, Alfredo Muller and many others.

Regarded as an international current, it is based on a break with nineteenth-century eclecticism and historicism and represents a modern response to an increasingly industrialized society. Conceived of as total art, Modern Style became Tiffany in the United States, Jugendstil in Germany, Sezession in Austria, Nieuwe Kunst in the Netherlands, Art Nouveau in Italy, Modernism in Spain, and quickly imposed itself in England, the home of the movement’s leading theorists, and came under the name Art Nouveau in France.

It was precisely in Turin that it was presented in 1902 with theInternational Exhibition of Modern Decorative Art and kicked off Art Nouveau in Italy starting with the city, which was expanding at the time.

Under the patronage of the City of Turin, produced and organized by the Consorzio delle Residenze Reali Sabaude with Arthemisia, it is curated by Katy Sp urrell with catalog texts by Victor Arwas (1937 - 2010), Katy Spurrell and Valerio Terraroli.
