Art Nouveau an Architectural Indulgence: In Collaboration with The Victoria & Albert Museum

Author: Andreas Papadakis

The series of movements that formed Art Nouveau are here introduced by Victor Arwas, a leading international expert on the period, and described in a series of essays by specialists from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London: Paul Greenhalgh, Head of Research at the V&A and curator of the recent exhibition Art Nouveau 1890-1914, writes on The Tensile Line; Ghislaine Wood, assistant curator of the exhibition, on Art Nouveau at the V&A; and Alan Graves on Art Nouveau tilework. Anna Jackson discusses Japan and the creation of Art Nouveau in an essay entitled Tradition and Modernity. Jane Pavitt describes the architecture of Prague under the title New Bohemians. Jennifer Opie writes about Art Nouveau in Helsinki. Siegfried Bing's facades as a marketing tool for the new art are discussed by Gabriel Weisberg; Ian Millman writes on Georges de Feure and L'Art Nouveau Bing; and Gillian Naylor on Hector Guimard. Finally, Victor Arwas introduces an extensive appendix of contemporary plates on Art Nouveau architecture in France. Art Nouveau flourished for only an instant; the Western world hurried to explore new ideas driven by the machine age, which had little respect for sinuous lines. Despite repeated rejections by professional architects, designers and academics, Art Nouveau architecture has retained its mass appeal throughout the 20th century.
