Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Jane Avril, lithograph, 1895Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne:  Paris 1880-1910


"Toulouse-Lautre and La Vie Moderne, 1880-1910" celebrates the work of avant-garde artist living in Paris at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, when the city was the center of creative activity as well as a favorite subject for artists. The work of the Naturalists, the Symbolists, the Incohérents, and the Nabis presented fresh visions of life and society during this important 30-year period of "Modern" French art. This is the first exhibition to present a kaleidoscopic view of the work of a generation of artists who continued the battle for artistic liberation from Academic standards fought by the Impressionists and Post Impressionists.

DECO JAPAN: Shaping Art and Culture, 1920 - 1945Modan bushi (The Modern Song) by K. Katani, 1930, ink and pigment on paper;


The first exhibition held outside Tokyo dedicated to Japanese Art Deco, "DECO JAPAN" provides dramatic examples of the spectacular craftsmanship and sophisticated design long associated with Japan and conveys the complex social and cultural tensions during the Taishô and early Shôwa epochs (1912-1945).  In these pre-war and war eras, artists and patrons created a Japanese modernism that signaled simultaneously the nation's unique history and cosmopolitinism.  The vitality of the era is further expressed through the theme of the moga, or modern girl, the emblem of contemporary urban chic that flowered along with the Art Deco style in the 1920's and 1930's.

Panel of the Coronation of the Virgin. Early 15th Century, alabaster, Victoria and Albert Museum, London.Object of Devotion: Medieval English Alabaster Sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum


"OBJECT OF DEVOTION: Medieval English Alabaster Sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum" presents sixty beautifully-carved alabaster panels and free-standing figures that were displayed in the homes, chapels, and churches of both aristocratic and non-aristocratic Christians in the 15th and 16th centuries. Alabaster production during the Middle Ages centered on the making and selling of finely decorated, gilded and colored sculpture to churches, nobles, and owners of private chapels. More common examples, however, were intended to brighten the homes and spiritual lives of people of modest means and are now treasured as the folk art of the ordinary medieval English man and woman.  Due to this range in intended audience, this assemblage of English alabasters offers an unrivalled glimpse into the spiritual lives, hopes, fears and religious aspirations of both aristocratic and non-aristocratic society during the Middle Ages.  Since alabasters were sold across the Continent in large quantities, the exhibition sheds light on spirituality and culture beyond the English Channel, with English examples having been found in countries from Iceland to Italy, and Poland to Portugal.

RAVISHING BEAUTY: The Art of Tissot and Helleu

Jean-Jaques Tissot (1836-1902) and Paul César Helleu (1959-1927) devoted much of their lives to the pursuit of beauty, though each approached it with his own individual obsessions. Tissot was fascinated by clothing, the texture, shape and fall of fabrics and the details of settings.  Helleu employed the simplest of lines to capture human sentiments: fleeting expressions from playfulness to challenge, from concentration to sleep.  This exhibition explores the intimate preoccupations of these two artists through 100 superb drawings and prints selected from private collections in Europe.
