Spirit of the Belle EpoqueBook - 2006
Art Nouveau defines the elegant, decorative style that flourished from the early 1880s to the beginning of World War I. This international movement came at a symbolic moment in time--when the nineteenth century was giving birth to the modern world--and many of the artists whose work typified this sophisticated style became household names. Characterized by ornamental, sinuous lines, Art Nouveau was a highly original and graceful style based on the natural forms of flora and fauna as they encountered the elements. With 105 full-color illustrations, this book is a stunning visual celebration of the art and artists of Art Nouveau and is a must for all art lovers.
