    FASHION EYE SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Synonymous with the art of travel since 1854, Louis Vuitton is adding another five titles to its Fashion Eye series of photography books.

    This autumn, five photographers invite us to travel to new horizons: Cretto di Burri by Olivier Toscani, Iran by Harley Weir, Geneva by Paul Rousteau, Silk Road by Kishin Shinoyama and Bali by Quentin de Briey. Each book evokes a city, a region or a country, seen through the eyes of a fashion photographer. 

    As the most recent addition to the Éditions Louis Vuitton line-up, Fashion Eye brings a new dimension to the range of Travel Books conceived by the luxury house. With the City Guides offering a refreshing and offbeat perspective on familiar and less familiar metropolises, the Travel Books reviving the idea of the artist’s notebook, this third collection travel photography indirectly showcases fashion, thanks to the talents well recognised for their work in this field.

    • EGON SCHIELE & JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT AT FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    From opposite ends of the 20th century, from Vienna to New York, the lives and works of Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat are fascinating for their fleetingness and intensity.

    EGON SCHIELE
    Egon Schiele’s work is indissociable from the Viennese spirit of the early 20th century. In just a few years, his drawing emerged as one of the peaks of expressionism.
    The exhibition brings together some 100 works: drawings, gouaches, and paintings. Among them, « Self-Portrait with a Chinese Lantern Plant » (1912), on loan from the Leopold Museum (Vienna), “Pregnant Woman and Death” (1911), from the Národní gallery (Poland), “Portrait of the Artist’s Wife Seated, Holding Her Right Leg” (1917) from the Morgan Library & Museum (New York), “Standing Nude with Blue Sheet” (1914) from the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg, “Seated Male Nude” (1910) from the Neue Galerie New York, and “Self-Portrait” (1912) from the National Gallery of Art, Washington.

    BASQUIAT
    The work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most significant painters of the 20th century, is spread over four levels of Frank Gehry’s building.
    The exhibition covers the painter’s whole career, from 1980 to 1988, focusing on 120 defining works. With the Heads from 1981-1982, gathered for the first time here, and the presentation of several collaborations between Basquiat and Warhol, the exhibition includes works previously unseen in Europe, essential works such as "Obnoxious Liberals" (1982), "In Italian" (1983), and "Riding with Death" (1988), as well as paintings which have rarely been seen since their first presentations during the artist’s lifetime, such as "Offensive Orange" (1982), "Untitled (Boxer)" (1982), and "Untitled (Yellow Tar and Feathers)" (1982).

    From 3 October 2018 to 14 January 2019

  • FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON: EGON SCHIELE AND JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

    The Fondation Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce that its fall exhibits will be devoted to two exceptional 20th century artists : Egon Schiele and Jean Michel Basquiat.

    In Fall, the Fondation will host two major exhibitions: one is dedicated to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the other one to Egon Schiele.

    EGON SCHIELE
    Egon Schiele’s work is indissociable from the Viennese spirit of the early 20th century. In just a few years, his drawing emerged as one of the peaks of expressionism. At odds with the Academy, which he entered precociously, he founded the Neukunstgruppe in 1909 and, thanks to Gustav Klimt, discovered the work of Van Gogh, Munch and Toorop. The exhibition brings together around 100 works of drawings, gouaches, and paintings.

    JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT
    The work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most significant painters of the 20th century, is spread over four levels of Frank Gehry’s building.

    The exhibition covers the painter’s whole career, from 1980 to 1988, focusing on 120 defining works. With the Heads from 1981-1982, gathered for the first time here, and the presentation of several collaborations between Basquiat and Warhol, the exhibition includes works previously unseen in Europe.

    Opening October 3rd 2018.

    The first comprehensive overview of Louis Vuitton’s cutting-edge fashion collections, from their debut in 1998 to today, presented through original catwalk photography.

    Founded as a leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton launched its first fashion collection in 1998. Unprecedented global fame ensued, as did pioneering high-profile collaborations with artists such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse.

    Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the unveiling of the house’s first women’s collection, Louis Vuitton Catwalk records the hugely influential collections designed by creative director Marc Jacobs (1998–2014) and Nicolas Ghesquière, who helms the brand today.

    Every women's ready to wear collection is represented, as are Cruise collections since the arrival of Ghesquière onwards. Complete with an introduction by Jo Ellison and designer profiles and collection texts by Louise Rytter, this book offers a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the most iconic luxury brands in the world. With over 1,350 images, this treasure trove of inspiration will be the must-have reference for all fashion professionals and Louis Vuitton fans.
