Museum of Art

From their inception in 1851, the fairs showcased the cutting edge of industry, production, new materials and methods for creating everything from tools to jewelry, furniture to textiles. In doing so, artists and manufacturers used breakthrough scientific innovations to create art objects that embodied the latest aesthetics and techniques.
Inventing the Modern World assembles more than 200 art objects from the world's fairs and showcases objects assembled from European and American collections.
The decorative arts made for the world's fairs often display the use of traditional styles while employing previously unknown materials and methods. Because early world's fairs were a gathering of nations in a less globalized time, works typically exhibited a nationalistic pride while showcasing the most cutting-edge craftsmanship of a given country.

Famous painting at Carnegie
Museum of Art
PITTSBURGH - Henri Matisse's "The Thousand and One Nights," is a large, multi-panel, painted paper cutout, but because of its fragile nature, it is only on view for a limited period of time - through July 15 at the Carnegie Museum of Art.
"One Thousand and One Nights" was created in 1950, when the artist was 81 and confined to his bed. Unable to sleep and kept alive by his drive to create, Matisse had much in common with Scheherazade, the legendary narrator of the Arabian Nights. Scheherazade saves her own life from a vengeful king by enthralling him with a story that she always interrupts at a moment of suspense just after dawn, ensuring her survival through 1,001 nights. Like her tales, "The Thousand and One Nights" is a work rich in fantastical imagery and symbolism created during many sleepless, difficult hours.
The composition - with its fanciful magic lamps, dancing plant forms, hearts and cut-out text - evokes the supernatural quality of the heroine's storytelling and also the passage of time through the night. The complex shapes are interwoven to create a spontaneous, musical rhythm that captures the fascinating rapture of the story that inspired it. The museum is at 4400 Forbes Ave. For information, go to www.cmoa.org or call (412) 622-3131.
