ART NOUVEAU

Highly Recommended. By Uta Hasekamp. Art Nouveau was a phenomenon with many faces. Between 1890 and 1910, artists developed a variety of styles from the plant-like forms of the Belgian-French Art Nouveau to the ornamentation of the Viennese Secession. They were all striving to create a new, modern style and pursued a comprehensive renewal of art and, in some countries, also a renewed national identity. This shows the gorgeous buildings, interior design, objects, sculptures, posters, and graphic design that beautifully embraced this movement.

Art Nouveau was a phenomenon with many faces. Between 1890 and 1910, artists developed a variety of styles from the plant-like forms of the Belgian-French Art Nouveau to the ornamentation of the Viennese Secession. They were all striving to create a new, modern style and pursued a comprehensive renewal of art and, in some countries, also a renewed national identity. This shows the gorgeous buildings, interior design, objects, sculptures, posters, and graphic design that beautifully embraced this movement.

Reproduction is outstanding. There is less graphics here than I might like, but so many of those you have seen before. Mucha of course is here, and Lefler/Urban, and the Jugenstil movement. But what's fresh and different is so many buildings and architectural designs, from Gaudi's work in Barcelona, to stunning structures in Paris, Prague, London, Belguim... all over.

This is a nice fresh offering of unusual work, some of it stunning to say the least, and at the price it would be a nice edition even if you have other books on the subject.
