Art Nouveau A&I
Author: Stephen Escritt
Art Nouveau conjures up images of nymph-like female figures and sinuous organic tendrils, as well as radical geometric simplicity. In its brief life span, which broached the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the style spread across the world in myriad incarnations. This comprehensive book places Art Nouveau in the context of its time and explores architecture, interior design, furniture, sculpture, painting, graphic arts and jewellery.
