Drawing played a major role in his development as he explored on paper new subjects and techniques and experimented with non-traditional tools and modes of application. This exhibition is the first museum retrospective of Dubuffet&rsquo;s drawings. It includes about one hundred works from his most innovative years&mdash;between 1935 and 1962&mdash;borrowed from private and public collections in France and the United States. Dubuffet applied his radical approach to subjects ranging from views of Paris and its metro to nudes, portraits of writers, majestic beards, and scenes from the Sahara desert. His art has been influential on later generations of artists up to today.<br /><br />Picture: The Morgan Library. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2589-dubuffet_drawings.html 2016/09/30 Charlotte Brontë: An Independent Will <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2588/100/100/image.jpg" alt="Charlotte Brontë: An Independent Will" align="left" /> From the time Charlotte Bront&euml;&rsquo;s novel Jane Eyre was first published in 1847, readers have been drawn to the orphan protagonist who declared herself &ldquo;a free human being with an independent will.&rdquo; Like her most famous fictional creation, Bront&euml; herself took bold steps throughout her life in pursuit of personal and professional fulfillment. This exhibition, presented on the occasion of the two hundredth anniversary of Bront&euml;&rsquo;s birth, traces her creative path from reluctant governess to published poet to commanding novelist. From her earliest literary works&mdash;written with a quill pen in a minuscule hand designed to mimic the printed page&mdash;to the manuscript of her explosive novel Jane Eyre, the exhibition presents an intimate portrait of one of England&rsquo;s most compelling authors.<br /><br />The exhibition is a historic collaboration between two of the world&rsquo;s finest repositories of Bront&euml;ana. It brings together literary manuscripts, intimate letters, and rare printed books from the Morgan&rsquo;s rich collection with personal artifacts, drawings, and photographs from the Bront&euml; Parsonage Museum in Haworth, England. Highlights include Bront&euml;&rsquo;s earliest surviving miniature manuscript, her portable writing desk and paint box, one of her own dresses, and a pair of her ankle boots. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2588-charlotte_bronte_an_independent_will.html 2016/09/09 Hans Memling: Portraiture, Piety, and a Reunited Altarpiece <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2587/100/100/image.jpg" alt="Hans Memling: Portraiture, Piety, and a Reunited Altarpiece" align="left" /> Completed around 1470 in Bruges, Hans Memling's Triptych of Jan Crabbe was dismembered in the 18th century and has never before been reconstructed for an American audience. Two panels from the altarpiece are among the finest paintings owned by the Morgan Library &amp; Museum, where they have long been on permanent view in Pierpont Morgan&rsquo;s Study. This exhibition brings together the scattered elements of the famous triptych, reuniting the Morgan inner wings with the central panel now owned by the Musei Civici in Vicenza, Italy, and the outer wings from the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, Belgium.<br /><br />Hans Memling: Portraiture, Piety, and a Reunited Altarpiece is the first museum exhibition to explore the reconstructed masterpiece in context. It has long been observed that the donor portraits are the most outstanding aspect of the Crabbe Triptych, especially the portrait of Anna Willemzoon in the left wing, an extraordinary image of old age, and representative of the merging of the sacred and secular realms that is often present in the work of Memling and his contemporaries. Memling was notable as a painter of portraits, and his work in this field revolutionized portrait painting across Europe. To present the artist&rsquo;s extraordinary ability to capture a likeness, a number of his independent portraits will be shown, including the Morgan&rsquo;s Man with a Pink.<br /><br />Picture: Morgan Library and Museum </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2587-hans_memling_portraiture_piety_and_a_reunited_altarpiece.html 2016/09/02 Word and Image: Martin Luther's Reformation <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2590/100/100/image.jpg" alt="Word and Image: Martin Luther's Reformation" align="left" /> Five hundred years ago a monk in a backwater town at the edge of Germany took on the most powerful men in Europe: the Holy Roman Emperor and the Pope&hellip;and he won. Martin Luther&rsquo;s Reformation is one of the most successful media campaigns in history and an event that completely altered the course of western history. To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Luther posting the Ninety-Five Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, this exhibition explores how the Reformation was launched and propagated through Luther&rsquo;s strategic use of media: printed books, prints, paintings, and music.<br /><br />Luther&rsquo;s thoughts on Scripture and man&rsquo;s relationship to God were revolutionary, but the way that text and art were employed to disseminate his message was equally ground-breaking. The inception and development of the Reformation will be illustrated in Word and Image with ninety works of art and objects, the majority of which are from museums in Germany and which have never been seen before in North America. Exceptional highlights include one of the five existing printed copies of the Ninety-Five Theses, nearly forty paintings, prints, and drawings by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Luther&rsquo;s manuscript draft of his Old Testament translation, Conrad Meit's exquisite statues of Adam and Eve, and over thirty of Luther&rsquo;s most important publications and the ones that led the pope to excommunicate Luther and make him the most successful heretic in history.<br /><br />Picture: The Morgan Library. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2590-word_and_image_martin_luthers_reformation.html 2016/10/07 À la recherche du l’Utopia – In Search for Utopia <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2607/100/100/image.jpg" alt="À la recherche du l’Utopia – In Search for Utopia" align="left" /> <p>No fewer than eighty masterpieces are waiting for you at M - Museum Leuven&rsquo;s unique and extraordinary exhibition: In Search of Utopia.
