16 October 2018 – 27 September 2020, Exhibition Earth into Art—The Flowering of American Art Pottery, Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida, USA.

American Art Pottery was in peak demand from roughly 1876 to 1915. Sharing many of the values of the international Arts and Crafts movement—which was a response to industrialization and mass production—these ceramic artists sought a return to work by hand, dignity of labor, and unity of design. Their work, merging the fine and decorative arts, incorporated the avant-garde brushstrokes of French Impressionists, the exoticism of Asian motifs like bamboo, realistic representations of plants and flowers, and, paying homage to a proud heritage, portraits of Native American leaders.

László Gyugyi Collection


Maison CauchieThe Cauchie House, Brussels, Belgium.

The restoration work carried out over nearly fifteen years breathed new life into the building. The first week-end of every month it is open to visitors who appreciate its message of beauty.

The successive ground floor rooms each have their own particularities and their content of symbolism. Decorative designs and furniture of the time demonstrate the manifest influence of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Glasgow School of Art). The upper storeys of the house, where there is no evidence of Paul or Lina’s talents, have been used as apartments and renovated to suit modern contemporary use. The basement, cellar, and artist workshop have been redesigned into a vast gallery to exhibit Paul and Lina Cauchie’s paintings collected by the current owners over time.
