"Grand Tour: Testimonies of the Travel in the Barons von der Ropps Art Collection"

"Grand Tour: Testimonies of the Travel in the Barons von der Ropps Art Collection"

15. May 2020 - 30. June 2020

Regarding the fact that the Ropp collection in the 19th century was well-known in the Baltic German provinces and had been thoroughly documented it was possible to highlight in the exhibition the survived treasures of Theodor von der Ropp's original collection, accumulated in various European, in the main, Italian centres. The newly discovered biographical material in the Latvian archives and the family chronicles enabled to bring to light the personality of the initiator of the collection, to provide a more extensive picture of a well-educated representative of the Age of Enlightenment and his consistent activity. Perhaps the most engaging fact is that Theodor von der Ropp was known as a patron of the famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770–1844). Straight from the sculptor's workshop, the baron acquired a marble bas-relief "Achilles and Briseis" and a sculpture "Venus with an Apple" (Venus victrix) (both had survived), as well as nine copies of antique marble busts. Recently, researchers acknowledge that the young baronet's commission was a key turningpoint in the career of a Danish sculptor, all the more so, it was made at the time when he had to decide whether to return home after the scholarship of the Royal Danish Academy was over or to stay in Rome and work self-dependently.
 The exhibition presents in a wider context the artistic values of Pakruojis Manor – exhibits of sculpture, painting and the applied arts (porcelain and glass) – collected by the representatives of several generations. Moreover, they had survived and had been preserved at the M. K. ?iurlionis National Museum of Art and Šiauliai "Aušra" Museum.
The collection of artworks accumulated by Barons von der Ropp was transferred to the State Culture Museum in the autumn of 1940. Artist Vladas Sipaitis and a representative of Šiauliai Public Library writer Borisas Melngailis, authorized by the Ministry of Education, in the presence of the family members, made a list of all art treasures accumulated in Pakruojis Manor and handed them over to the Agency for Cultural Heritage Protection. As the registrants were from Šiauliai, the works of art were transported both to Kaunas and to Šiauliai "Aušra" Museum. Most of the treasures can be identified according to the register lists, although both museums, over the course of time, had accumulated exhibits related to Pakruojis Manor, as well. The objects of art from Pakruojis encompass various artistic periods, and they have been collected by the representatives of different generations up to the fateful 1940.

Partner: Šiauliai "Aušra" Museum

Antanas Sutkus photography exhibition “Greetings from the 20th century“

Antanas Sutkus photography exhibition “Greetings from the 20th century“

20. March 2020 - 30. June 2020

“Greetings from the 20th century“ – such is a favourite phrase of one of the most prominent and conspicuous Lithuanian photography artist’s Antanas Sutkus (b.1939).

The extensive exhibition in Kaunas is distinguished for the abundance of new photographs. A. Sutkus has worked with his photography archive for more than twenty years and still discovers forgotten moments and many affecting images from the past. These works feature a whole photographic epoch that introduces Lithuania and its people of the 20th century.

 A famous photographer says that the viewer of Kaunas is important and noteworthy to him: “This city has a lot of influential personalities – writers, artists. It seems to me that the creative community in Kaunas is tightly interrelated. For a number of years the magazine “Nemunas”, which is famous not only for its textual content but also for photographs, has been the most famous publication. My last major solo exhibition in Kaunas was held as far back as the years of deep Soviet era“.

 A. Sutkus invited young colleagues Berta Tilmantait? and Art?ras Morozovas to be curators of this exhibition. “These photographers are close to me for their sensitivity to humans and I am especially curious about the interpretation of my works from a younger generation’s point of view,” says the photographer.

 While selecting the works the curators aimed to show already seen and well known works as well as the new ones including the photographs taken during the last few years.

 “We have been communicating with Antanas for several years – we accompanied him to receive the prestigious Salomon Prize in Berlin, and presented his works in Poland and Belarus. During this time, we have seen Antanas from different points of view – not only as a legend of photography, a strong, creative personality, but also as a true and openhearted man with all the qualities he has – hesitation, joy, nostalgia and curiosity. We are eager to introduce A. Sutkus to visitors“, – the curators of the exhibition say.

Alighted by the Fire of Monmartre: Rokiškis Manor Art Collection

Alighted by the Fire of Monmartre: Rokiškis Manor Art Collection

27. February 2020 - 30. June 2020

M. K. ?iurlionis National Museum of Art, in cooperation with Rokiškis Regional Museum, is presenting an exhibition Alighted by the Fire of Monmartre: Rokiškis Manor Art Collection, where for the very first time the manor valuables stored in Rokiškis and Kaunas are exhibited.

The foundation of the collection was formed by Count Konstanty Tyzenhauz (1786 – 1853), who established a picture gallery and an ornithology cabinet in Pastovys (now Belarusian territory). K. Tyzenhauz accumulated his art collection over a period of time while traveling abroad. Constantine’s son-in-law, historian Alexander Przezdziecki (1814–1871), wrote that K. Tyzenhauz had collected his works “even when Montmartre was ablaze in gunfire”. It is safe to say that this phrase, which became the leitmotif of the exhibition, was prophetic, as Montmartre quickly became famous and much loved by the artistic intelligentsia. K. Tyzenhauz had a close connection to France, because of his involvement in the war of 1812 as he chose to live in France for a while after the war was over.

The large part of the exhibit consists of a collection of paintings by foreign artists (Italian, Flemish, French, German). The mentioned artists are Francesco Fontebasso, Marcello Bacciarelli, Salvator Rosa, Guido Cagnacci, Andrea del Sarto, Antoine Mirou, Abraham van Diepenbeeck, Leonaert Bramer, Louis de Caullery and others. In the context of Lithuania related authors, the most exceptional are the drawings and watercolours of Count K. Tyzenhauz himself and the drawings and lithographs of his teacher Aleksander Or?owski.  A valuable collection of religious drawings by Szymon Czechowicz. The counts also had extensive collections of Vilnius Album lithographs and tombstones images of Polish-Lithuanian rulers.

 The exhibition highlights two prominent Countess women – Sophie Tysenhauz de Choiseul-Gouffier and Maria Tyzenhauz-Przezdziecka, whose talents and good deeds have been revealed in various fields. The exhibition is also complemented by birds from K. Tyzenhauz ornithology office and various fragments from the manor’s everyday life – books, paintings and watercolours by the countesses, accessories. A plentiful collection of amateur photos on display taken by Przezdziecki family members, the last ruling counts of Rokiškis, reveal their interest in photography while a collection of clothing preserved by the manor servants will be seen on show by footage.

300 Pictures to the Ancient Novel “Satyricon”

300 Pictures to the Ancient Novel “Satyricon”

31. January 2020 - 15. March 2020

History has not been nice to “Satyricon” which is one of only two novels that we have from Roman times (the other being Apuleius’ “The Golden Ass”). Today it is largely agreed that “Satyricon” was written by Petronius – with the title “Arbitae”, a connoisseur of taste, in the years of 63-65 AD. The work, as we have it, consists of fragments from “books” no 14, 15 and 16 – and not always in the correct order. This indicates that the work was probably ten times longer.
 The exhibition pictures follows largely the text, which is included, but not as illustrations in the traditional way which is more or less copying the existing text. Here most of the collage-elements dates from pre-WW II when human transactions were un-computerised, physical hand-overs. The collages takes the story out of Roman times and indicates not only the existing story but what could have happened between the fragments.
 So, what is the text all about? We could say that it seems surprisingly modern, with a sexual freedom and thoughts that would not have been out of place among the hippies of 1970. It has also discussions on art, food and philosophy. The former slave, the nouveau riche Trimalcio is a fantastically written character said to be an ironic portrait of the emperor Nero.
 The story’s antihero Encolpius is drawn between his lover Giton – a 16 year old boy who often seems to be the most practical person in the story, and his mistress Circe. In either case Encolpius is troubled with his erection-problems – of which he is cured towards the end of the story by a treatment no doctor would prescribe. With Circe the story becomes a parody on the Greek tragedies (which were well known in the Naples-Herculanum-Pompeii territory were the book was written. This part of Italy had for a long time been a Greek colony). The long poems – including the one on the Troyan war, is a parody on the Odyssey.
 In the pictures this is shown by taking the elements out of their context or giving them another and unintended meaning. The exhibition can be viewed as unrelated, colourful fairytale pictures or as visual comments and symbols to Petronius’ text.
