Antique Collector - Art Nouveau


New wonders for a new century - Art Nouveau.
Art Nouveau spaned the late and early years of the last two centuries (1890-1914) and sprang from the Arts and Craft Movement. The highly imaginative forms were extremely decorative, although an individual designers interpretation of Art Nouveau was often varied. Art Nouveau became officially recognized following the International Exhibition of Paris, 1900, and is epitomized by the glassworkers Galle and Tiffany, and the jewellery of Lalique.

Art Nouveau designers demonstrated an appreciation of the natural world and were inspired by the sinuous lines of flowers, animals, insects, birds and plants. They used the pliancy of wood, molten glass, clay and metal, and applied them to the flowing curves we see in buildings, furniture, jewellery, ceramics, glass and sculpture. Commercial poster printing offered a new medium for advertisers and artists alike who wasted no time experimenting with this new artform, and these remain popular with collectors.
