Isabella Stewart Gardner first welcomed visitors to her museum on New Year's Day, 1903. On that evening guests listened to the music of Bach, Mozart, and Schumann, gazed in wonder at the courtyard full of flowers, and viewed one of the nation's finest collections of art. Today, visitors experience much the same thing. The Gardner Museum has remained essentially unchanged since its founder's death in 1924. Unchanged but certainly not stagnant. Three floors of galleries surround a garden courtyard blooming with life in all seasons.

In March 1990, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, was robbed by two unknown men. The thieves removed works of art whose value has been estimated as high as $300 million. These include: Vermeer, The Concert; Rembrandt, A Lady and Gentleman in Black; Rembrandt, The Storm on the Sea of Galilee; Rembrandt, Self-Portrait; Govaert Flinck, Landscape with Obelisk; Manet, Chez Tortoni.

one of the all-time favorites :lol: :lol:


The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) is the world's only museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and in all its glory.

MOBA was founded in the fall of 1993 and presented its first show in March 1994. The response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA's collection and ambitions have grown exponentially.

Initially, MOBA was housed in the basement of a private home in Boston. This meager exhibition space limited the museum to being a regional cultural resource for the New England area.

Artists who make it into the MOBA portraiture collection are often visited by a unique, possibly extraterrestrial muse. For it is up to us, the Viewer, to solve the many mysteries framed within these paintings, mysteries such as "Are those ice creams or mountains?"

The Tate Modern in London is Britain's national museum of international modern art and is, with Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, and Tate Online[1], part of the group now known simply as Tate.

The galleries are housed in the former Bankside Power Station, which was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the architect of Battersea Power Station, and built in two stages between 1947 and 1963. The power station closed in 1981. The building was converted by architects Herzog & de Meuron, after which it stood at 99m tall. The southern third of the building was retained by the French power company EDF Energy as an electrical substation (in 2006, the company released half of this holding).[2] Since the museum's opening on 12 May 2000, it has become a very popular destination for Londoners and tourists. Entry to collection displays and some temporary exhibitions is free.

The J. Paul Getty Museum's goal is to make its collection meaningful and attractive to a broad audience by presenting and interpreting the collection through educational programs, special exhibitions, publications, conservation, and research.

The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center in Los Angeles houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, and European and American photographs.

This exhibition explores British photographer Peter Henry Emerson's decade-long work to document the people and landscape of the Norfolk Broads, a network of freshwater rivers, lakes, and marshes in East Anglia, on England's eastern shore. Drawn to rural subjects, Emerson was fascinated by the region's traditional ways of life and concerned that they were threatened by industrialization and tourism.

From 1885 to 1895 Emerson used the latest photographic processes to document the region's traditions and landscape, which he felt was in danger of disappearing. The new technology of photomechanical reproduction made it possible for Emerson to mass-produce his photographs and to create a prolific output of books, portfolios, and individual works on the subject.

The National Great Blacks In Wax Museum is among the nations most dynamic cultural and educational institutions. Because it is a wax museum committed solely to the study and preservation of African American history, it is also among the most unique. Primarily, the presentation of life-size, life-like wax figures highlighting historical and contemporary personalities of African ancestry defines its uniqueness.

A Smithsonian affiliate, The Women's Museum™: An Institute for the Future makes visible the unique, textured, and diverse stories of American women. Using the latest technology and interactive media, the Museum's exhibits and programs expand our understanding of women's participation in shaping our nation's history and create a lively environment for dialogue and discovery. Thousands of stories recount public and private triumphs and the struggles of those who would be denied their freedoms in all its forms: political, social, and spiritual.

The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


evo trenutna izlozba :)

In 1966, when the Berkeley Art Museum's first director, Peter Selz, was anticipating the opening of "a splendid new building" to house the University's art collection—which, at that time, was stored in the basement of Hearst Gymnasium beneath the swimming pool—he hoped that the collection would grow to encompass all areas of art, past and present. The stated aim of the new museum was to offer a broad range of objects "for study by the specialist, as well as allowing the undergraduate and the university community to experience works of art of outstanding quality and beauty."

The exhibition Kunstkammer,on view in the Theater Gallery, offers an opportunity to share a wide variety of works on paper collected by the Berkeley Art Museum since its inception, and by the University before that. Representing a span of four hundred years and multiple continents, an array of prints, drawings, and photographs are mixed throughout the gallery space, hung in a style reminiscent of a sixteenth-century Kunstkammer. Among the many pieces in the show are works by Albrecht Dürer, Paul Gauguin, Tom Marioni, Louise Bourgeois, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Rivane Neunschwander.

The word Kunstkammer, which translated literally means art chamber, can be traced to Central Europe in the mid-sixteenth century, when it was used to describe private collections of paintings and precious artifacts presented as objects of scholarship and wonder. The early Kunstkammer often combined works of art with scientific apparatus and products of nature.

Andy Warhol, Self Portrait, 1986
Collections

Over the course of his career, Andy Warhol transformed contemporary art. Employing mass-production techniques to create works, Warhol challenged preconceived notions about the nature of art and erased traditional distinctions between fine art and popular culture. The Andy Warhol Museum's permanent collection is comprised of more than 12,000 works of art by Warhol including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculpture, film, videotapes, and an extensive archives that consists of ephemera, records, source material for works of art, and other documents of the artist's life. Together, the art and archives make The Andy Warhol Museum the most comprehensive single-artist museum in the world.

The Museum preserves, exhibits, and interprets the collection, as well as providing the public with access to its unprecedented resources. The collection is not only a resource for research and study, but a basis for creative inspiration, representing a link between the past and the future, culture and the artistic process.


Film and Video Warhol Screen Text


The Andy Warhol Museum currently has a collection of 273 preserved Warhol films, including the newly restored Outer and Inner Space, Hedy, and 228 four-minute Screen Tests. The museum also holds the entire Andy Warhol Video Collection. Read More

Museum Collections

TWO-DIMENSIONAL PIECES

DECORATIVE ARTS

SCULPTURE

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT DESIGNED FURNITURE


The collections of the Fallingwater Museum are comprised of more than 950 works of art including prints, paintings, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, art glass, and miscellaneous household objects. Of particular significance in the collection are the 169 pieces of original walnut furniture, custom designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Fallingwater. These pieces represent one of the most complete ensembles of Wright designed, site-specific furniture.

Over the course of their tenure, the Kaufmann family furnished Fallingwater with an eclectic range of objects. These objects underlined the family’s belief in the power of good design to enrich the quality of modern life, a belief shared by Frank Lloyd Wright. Through the Kaufmann department store and Edgar Kaufmann, jr.’s association with the Museum of Modern Art in New York, they promoted the work of modern designers from all over the world. The family’s influence helped bridged the gap between the commercial market and the design world.

TWO-DIMENSIONAL PIECES:
Title: El Sueno; Executed: 1936
Artist: Diego Rivera (1886-1957); Nationality: Mexican
Medium: Gouache on Linen; Dimensions: 25 inches x 49 inches


Title: Profile of Man Wearing Hat, Executed: c. 1930-40
Artist: Diego Rivera (1886-1957); Nationality: Mexican
Medium: Conte Crayon on Rice Paper, Dimensions: 18 inches x 12.75 inches
This drawing previously hung in the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Kaufmann Office in Pittsburgh, PA.


Diego Rivera fused the innovations of European modernism with the indigenous traditions of Mexico’s pre-Columbian past and the art of its Native American peoples. Rivera is most noted for his monumental murals and his controversial political views. His work brought Mexican art to the forefront of 20th-century modernism.

Title: Excursion (Portrait of E. J. Kaufmann); Executed: 1929
Artist: Victor Hammer (1882-1967), Nationality: Austrian
Medium: Egg Tempera and Oil; Dimensions: 45.5 inches x 37.25 inches


Victor Hammer is most recognized for his portraits. He ascribes many of the characteristics of his work to his childhood impressions of Vienna, where he grew up. From 1922 until 1932, Hammer lived in Florence, where painted and hand-printed books. In 1930, Edgar Kaufmann, jr. moved to Florence to apprentice with Hammer. His mother, Liliane, met Hammer a year earlier in London and commissioned the portrait of her husband. Hammer eventually settled in New York where he was a professor at Wells College.

Title: Black Bellied Darter, Executed: 1836, Dimensions: 39.5 inches x 27 inches

Title: Fish Crows, Executed: 1832, Dimensions: 40 inches x 27.5 inches

Title: Raven, Executed: 1831, Dimensions: 39.5 inches x 26.65 inches

Title: Marsh Hawk, Executed: 1837, Dimensions: 39.5 inches x 27 inches

Artist: John J. Audubon (1785-1851), Nationality: American
Medium: Hand-Colored Etching, Engraving, and Aquatint

Audubon is arguably American’s most famous painter of wildlife. Lured by frontier life, Audubon explored the fields, woods and swamplands to record American wildlife. Using New Orleans as a base, he began to paint the birds of America in 1820 with the intention of printing them.

These engraving are plates from Audubon’s series of 435 hand-colored aquatints entitled Birds of America. The four-volume, double elephant folio was engraved on copper and hand colored in London by Robert Havell Jr. from Audubon’s original watercolors. These engravings were located in the Kaufmann’s first cottage at the Bear Run site, and then moved into Fallingwater once construction was completed.

These 6 Japanese woodblock prints were given to Kaufmann family personally by Frank Lloyd Wright .
Title: Night Snow, Kambara (Kambara yoro no yuki), Executed 1834

This print is from Hiroshige’s series, 53 Stations of the Tokaido (Tokaido Gojusam – sugi no uchi). This is station 16. Tokaido refers to the roadway, which follows the eastern coastal route from Edo (Tokyo), the capital of Japan since 1603, to Kyoto, the traditional capital. The print is marked by tembokashi printing, a technique by which the sky is dark above and becomes gradually light descending toward the horizon.


Title: Changing Porters and Horses at Fujieda (Fujieda jimba tsugitate), Executed 1834, Artist: Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858), Nationality: Japanese
Medium: Woodblock Print on Rice Paper, Dimensions: 21 inches x 25 inches,

This print is from his series, 53 Stations of the Tokaido (Tokaido Gojusam – sugi no uchi). This is station 23. Hiroshige depicts common activities of travelers and laborers at the station of Fujieda, which is 4 miles from Okabe.


Title: Street Scene on the Ginza-Yedo, Executed 1856-68,
Artist: Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858), Nationality: Japanese
Medium: Woodblock Print on Rice Paper, Dimensions: 25 inches x 20 inches

Title: Aoi Slope Lying Outside Toranomon Gate (Toranomon soto Aoizaka),
Executed 1857,
Artist: Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858), Nationality: Japanese
Medium: Woodblock Print on Rice Paper, Dimensions: 29 inches x 14.75 inches

Artist: Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858), Nationality: Japanese
Medium: Woodblock Print on Rice Paper, Dimensions: 26.5 inches x 16 inches
This print is from the series, One Hundred famous Views of Edo, View 64. This print illustrates the hanashobu iris cultivated in the village of Horikiri less than a mile from the mouth of the Ayase River.


Title: Pontoon Bridge at Sano (Kozuke Sano funabashi no kozu), Executed: c. 1820
Artist: Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), Nationality: Japanese
Medium: Woodblock Print on Rice Paper, Dimensions: 18.5 inches x 13.75 inches
This print is from a series of eleven titled Rare Views of Famous Bridges in All the Provences. The pontoon bridge at Sano (now the city of Takasaki) crosses the Tone, a major river in Japan. This bridge is well known in Japanese history, being mentioned in the Manyoshu, Anthology of Ten Thousand Leaves.


Title: The Artist and his Model (Le Peintre et son Modele), Executed: 1963
Artist: Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Nationality: Spanish
Medium: Aquatint, Drypoint, Etching, Dimensions: 25 inches x 23.5 inches


Title: The Smoker (Fumeur), Executed 1964
Artist: Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Nationality: Spanish
Medium: Aquatint, Dimensions: 22 inches x 16.25 inches
The Smoker is one is a series of 13 heads which Picasso executed in aquatint in 1964. Though this print in monochromatic, many in the series are quit colorful.


Working from his villa, Notre Dame de Vie, in the south of France, Picasso produced a huge body of work in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Picasso’s significance in the history of art is vast. His most monumental achievement was the founding of the cubist style, the aesthetic of which has in some measure had impact upon nearly every major artists and movement since 1907.

Title: Landscape: Jalapa, Mexico, Executed: 1877
Artist: Jose Maria Velasco (1840-1912), Nationality: Mexican
Medium: Oil on Canvas, Dimensions: 42.75 inches x 58.75 inches


Born in Tematzalcingo, Mexico to a family of weavers, Velasco rejected the family craft and took up painting. He entered the Academia de San Carlos in 1958 and studied landscape painting with the Italian, Eugenio Landesio. Ten years later he was named Professor of Perspective in the Academia. In 1874, he settled in Guadalupe.



DECORATIVE ARTS
Title: Washington Irving Chair, Executed: Mid Nineteenth Century
Artist: Attributed to William Morris (1834-1896), Nationality: English
Medium: Oak, foam and cloth, Dimensions: 29.5 inches x 26 inches x 42 inches


This chair came from the Washington Irving’s house, Sunnyside. Washington Irving was born in New York City on April 3, 1783. He studied law while traveling through Europe and was received into the bar in 1806, although he never attended college. Irving never became a lawyer, his interest was writing. Two of Irving’s most beloved stories were The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle.

The chair is attributed to William Morris, the nineteenth century artist, writer, and craftsman. In 1861, Morris, along with others, founded Morris, Marshall, and Faulkner, one of the world’s first design firms. Their belief that good design should be essentially simple and available to all, regardless of social standing, as well as their concern for high quality workmanship, became important modern principles.

Title: Slipper Chair, Executed: c. 1935-40
Artist: Laszlo Gabor (1895-1944), Nationality: Hungarian
Medium: Teak, foam, and cloth, Dimensions: 26 inches x 26 inches x 19.5 inches


The Kaufmann family assisted a number of artists and designers in immigrating to the United States during World War II. The first of these was Hungarian born artist Laszlo Gabor, whom Edgar Kaufmann, jr. had met in Vienna. The family brought him to Pittsburgh in 1935 as the store’s art director. His designs for show windows and in-store displays frequently challenged conventional practice and, occasionally, notions of propriety.

Title: Reclining Chair, Executed: c. 1936
Artist: Bruno Mathsson (1907-1988), Nationality: Swedish
Medium: Laminated maple and cloth, Dimensions: 31 inches x 20 inches x 38 inches


In his designs, Bruno Mathsson favored natural wood frames, which he bent into organically flowing lines, and upholstered them with tightly woven cloth or leather, which adhered to the shape of the frame. Mathsson’s chairs are earthy, yet elegant, and form fitting with the human anatomy. In 1939, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York, acquired 20 of Mathsson’s bentwood chairs. Subsequently, Edgar Kaufmann, jr. reproduced a Mathsson chair in a 1950 MOMA publication titled What is Modern Design?

Over a span of 32 years, Gertrud and Otto Natzler worked in their Los Angeles studio creating one-of-a-kind ceramic vessels. Gertrud was the master at the potter’s wheel.

Otto is credited with developing more than 2,000 glazes.

This candlestick was a gift from Yellin to Liliane Kaufmann.


Samuel Yellin, one of America’s foremost iron artists, was key in bringing wrought iron back into the genre of 20th century decorative arts. Yellin eschewed modern iron working methods, equating them with sham showiness, the by-product of industrialization. All of his pieces were assembled without the aid of arc or acetone welding. Yellin did almost all of the hardware for the Kaufmann’s house in Pittsburgh, La Tourelle.
Yellin’s forge in Philadelphia, still in operation, is run by his granddaughter, Clare Yellin.

Anotinio Bonet
Juan Kurchan

An example of this chair was in the Museum of Modern Art’s (MOMA), New York, seminal exhibit, The Modern Chair, curated by Edgar Kaufmann, jr. It was also included in Kaufmann’s 1950 MOMA publication What is Modern Design?

Title: Zuni Polychrome Jar, Executed: c. 1950
Artist/Nationality: Zuni Indians
Medium: Clay, Dimensions: 9.5 inches x 10 inches diameter


Zuni pots tend to be serviceable, but heavy with a coarse surface. Women, employing the coil technique, have always made Zuni pottery. The process of making traditional coiled pottery begins with gathering clay, plants, minerals and shards of broken pottery. The clay is the cleaned and soaked. The old pottery shards are ground down and mixed with the clay. The shards act as a temper to help prevent the pot from shrinking during the drying process. The clay is then rolled and coiled to form a new pot. Once the pot is formed a slip is applied. The pot is then painted and fired.

Barthe captivated the art world by producing sculptures and busts of African Americans as no one had ever done before. The Sculpture of Rose McClendon is one of many theatrical celebrity portraits that Barthe executed.

By 1976 his work had changed considerably.
