Museums related to Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, Arts & Crafts, Modernism and Stile Liberty

You are invited to contribute to this list to help to maintain it as accurate and comprehensive as possible. Send your contribution to Frank Derville.

The museums are followed by a list of stars that range from 0 up to 3. The more stars there are, the better the museum is (only regarding the Art Nouveau topic of course). Different qualities are evaluated : quantity of Art Nouveau pieces, quality of Art Nouveau pieces and finally quality of the exhibition. Concerning the last item, museums that restore original and complete AN rooms are granted 3 stars, those showing only one object separated from the others are not granted at all as it is meaningless in an Art that aims to be total.)

So far, I have identified 202 museums displaying AN objects. Please be patient during loading

The museums are sorted by countries and then by towns

                Musée de l'Ecole de Nancy*********

                A must. The house is not Art Nouveau in itself. Outside, there is a garden where you can find plants that influenced the Nancy Art Nouveau design. Inside, each room has been reconstructed with original furniture by the most wellknown artists of Nancy. Every room is a marvel in itself and the whole let you have a good feeling of that time.
                No photography allowed even with tripod.

                • Museum web site

                Pierre Cardin's 1900 collection. Visible under guided tour or diner. The web site is not frequently updated. In 2011, the last time I went there, there were 3 guided tours a day from Wednesday to Sunday and also the possibility to have a joint guided tour + diner but only under reservation. I would suggest to book by phone as the web site is not always up to date. And there should be someone to answer the phone either a few minutes before the start of the guided tours or in the evening when the restaurant is open. More than 550 Art Nouveau objects mainly French Art Nouveau (furniture by Majorelle, Vallin, Gaillard, Bénouville, drawings by Toulouse Lautrec) but also many lamps by Tiffany. There a few outstanding pieces but compared with the Musée d'Orsay the museum do not reach the same quality. In my opinion, the most interesting piece is the restaurant and the attached bars with a wonderful and complete original design by Marnez inspired by horse chestnut tree leaves that has been conserved over the years.

                Musée Carnavalet*******

                Two AN rooms are reconstructed as they were, for our great pleasure. The first one is the cafe de Paris by Sauvage and Majorelle and the second is he jewellery "Fouquet" by Alfons Mucha.

                Warning : I recently heard that these two rooms were closed on afternoons. You'd better call the museum before you come.

                                Nationaal Museum van Speelklok tot Pierement : This collection includes fairground and party organs that were in use around 1900. Of course they are decorated with Art Nouveau style flowers and curves. It is the only place, I have seen such Art Nouveau objects. I do like the museography work, including making visitors dancing on the mechanical "Art Nouveau" music.

                                            Gaudi lived there between 1906 and 1925. Located in the magnificent park Guell, the most interesting things are outside and free. Unfortunately the furniture on display in the museum was not designed for this building. Knowing how Gaudi designs everything to the very detail it leaves us on our hunger. If you don't have time, you may be wise to visit the other buildings by Gaudi instead.

                                            The museum collection comes from an antic dealer Manuel Ramos Andrade. It includes more than 1500 items ranging from scuptures (bronzes) to dolls and Art Nouveau glass work including Lalique, Gallé, Daum,...). The building, the "casa Lis" was built in 1905 in Art Nouveau style and has wonderful stained glass. Credit goes to Allan B. Schober who first mailed to me this tip.

                                              Two parts: the museum in itself is very messy concerning the Art Nouveau topic: all the objects are mixed together. The Art&Crafts; period is well represented. The Henry Cole wing with works of Frank Lloyd Wright and a recontruction of one room. As for me, the FLW wing is the best part of this Museum, as far as Art Nouveau is concerned.

                                                The CMA has a few objects which reflect L'Art Nouveau. Perhaps the most important is an armoire designed by Louis Majorelle which is depicts a woodland scene with marquetry trees, flowers, and birds, surmounted by a life-sized carved cat finial. Other works in the CMA collection include a clematis flower armchair by Majorelle, and an American Arts and Crafts/Art Nouveau-influenced jardinere by Grueby Pottery of Boston.

                                                The Art Nouveau collection at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is the largest in scope and the highest in quality of any art institution in the United States. New creations of style, technique and attitude can be seen in the brilliant flowers of a Tiffany Wisteria lamp, the elegance of a Ruhlmann desk or a window created by Frank Lloyd Wright. Two connoisseurs, Sydney and Frances Lewis of Richmond, assembled the collection and gave it to the musuem. The objects functioned as part of their household décor and they made it their passion to obtain excellent works. (Contributed by Don Dale - Virginia Museum of Fine Arts)
