Art Nouveau

Sale price Price $30.00 Regular price

How was Art Nouveau nouveau? This richly illustrated overview explores the contexts and provocations of this vivid turn-of-the-century style, in which a symphony of flowing lines and organic forms advocated not only a new linear freedom and liberation from artistic tradition but also a return to handcraftsmanship and the synthesis of artistic media and practices into a Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art, and a recoil from industrialization.
