Macklowe Gallery Celebrates 40 Years with Art Nouveau Sculpture Exhibition

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Celebrate beauty and freedom at Macklowe Gallery’s 40th anniversary Art Nouveau sculpture exhibition. In honor of the famed gallery’s four decades on Madison Avenue, the collection embraces the Parisian movement of feminine liberation that transformed art at the turn of the 20th century.

Painstakingly vetted over the course of two years, the exhibit boasts close to 300 masterpieces in all forms of sculpture. Whether it’s carefully crafted pitchers, inkwells or candlesticks that catch your eye, you’ll be glimpsing into the gems of typically shuttered private collections.

In elevating the free woman, these exquisite handicrafts give the female form a new life as exuberant nudes, blithe water sprites and even butterflies or flowers. Particularly notable are the very likeness of Loie Fuller, performing her iconic “serpentine” dance, and Louis Chalon’s Femme au Pieuvre, whose bold eroticism stirred the crowds at the 1900 Paris World’s Fair.

Now on through December 31, 2011.
