Women, Hand wowen Rugs, Home Industry

The exhibition in the Museum of Ethnography in Budapest presents hand-woven wool rugs made in 19th century peasant households together with applied art objects produced by the turn-of-the-century home industry workshops of the country. In some peasant communities woven wool rugs were major items in a woman’s trousseau, they played a part in the important occasions in human life. In the last decades of the 19th century, together with other creations of folk art, scholars and politicians became aware of woven rugs, discovering their aesthetic value and also seeing in them the possibility for integrating peasant work and women’s work, thus helping women to rise out of poverty. Amongst the newly created home-industry workshops, especially those in Torontál County (today part of Vojvodina, Serbia) played an important role the history of Hungarian applied arts, producing rugs and tapestries based on local “archaic” patterns, as well as on the designs of major art nouveau designers. (Pál Horti, János Vaszary).

Suur-Merijoki Manor was intended for the leisure use of a family with seven children. On display are beautiful original furniture and sculptures from Suur-Merijoki manor. Manor and its' planning is presented by colorful watercolor washes by Gesellius, Lindgren and Saarinen.

Emilio Ambrosini - architectural creations in Rijeka and Opatija 1884 - 1912

The exhibition and monograph will be presented to the entire creation of the famous Art Nouveau architect's most important in Rijeka in the period from his arrival in the city on Rječini in 1888 until his death in 1912. After his studies in Graz Ambrosini was created in the spirit of the Central High Historicism. Because of the politicized public criticism, client requests, and perhaps nostalgia for the style that marked his schooling until the end of his career kept historicist design of facades and articulation of the interior, while also monitoring and artistic events in Vienna. From there the beginning of the 20th century began arriving impulses of modern scientific urban planning which have led to the design of facilities encompassing Art Nouveau features (houses Schittar, Fabich etc.). Given that the secession of us realized mainly through the facades of plastic invaluable to us the importance of Ambrosini facade decorated with geometric and figurative decoration of classical refinement. Rampant market laws forced him to return to the past succession of styles, but even in these works shows his mature conception of architecture. The exhibition will be issued and monographs Emilio Ambrosini in Croatian and Italian.
