written by Małgorzata Szynkielewska on February 25, 2017 in Content and Europeana Art with 2 comments

You can easily get lost among over 53 million cultural heritage objects we display in Europeana. That is why, in this series we hand-pick some of the additions to our Collections that should not be missed. Check what we have prepared for you this month!

As you probably know, for the next 3 months Art Nouveau took over Europeana Art and we will be featuring lots of interesting pieces in the upcoming weeks. In today’s post we would like to highlight High School of Visual Arts in Budapest with over 400 Art Nouveau prints. You will find among them a variety of content, like:

Continuing with the content from La Belle Époque, let’s listen to some music!  Biblioteca de Catalunya displays 60 cylinder recordings of  songs and arias from the beginning of XX century. We picked 4 tracks that you can listen also on our Soundcloud:

Last but not least, we take a look at Hungarian art. The Rippl-Rónai Town Museum with County Rights in Kaposvár brough to Europeana over 1000 open pieces. Take a look and browse through! You can find there paintings and drawings from Hungarian artists like József Rippl-Rónai, Lajos Kunffy, Aurél Bernáth, Lajos Gulácsy, Mária Goszthony, János Vaszary or Ferenc Martyn.

[Update: this post was titled previously “Maggy’s picks: Art Nouveau prints and Catalan melodies”. As Biblioteca de Catalunya’s collection includes music of different origin, “melodies” were dropped in favour of “early recordings”, which makes new title more accurate.]
