Midnight in Paris and New York: Scenes from the Fin-De-Siècle-1940s
William J. Glackens and other Artists
William J. Glackens (1870 – 1938) and his American and French colleagues captured the rapidly changing society of the fin-de-siècle in Paris and New York with drawings, paintings, photographs and posters. This exhibition, drawn from the museum’s collection, private collections, and the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum, and other sources, explores this period through a variety of depictions of cafés, entertainment, and various sites in New York and Paris. Artists include Glackens, Alphonso Mucha, Everett Shin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and others, and examples of French and American decorative arts of the period, known as art nouveau (1890s – 1910) such as the distinctive architectural designs, furniture, glass, metalwork and silver of Jean Daum, Emile Gallé, Hector, Guimard, René Lalique, and Louis Comfort Tiffany, among others.
This exhibition is curated by Barbara Buhler Lynes, Ph.D., Senior Curator.
