Highly Recommended. By Thomas Hauffe. Between 1890 and the beginning of the First World War, a new international style developed in architecture and design. Following the example of the English Arts and Crafts movement, the representatives of Art Nouveau turned against the eclectic excesses of the Victorian era, embracing organic forms, plant ornamentation and functional free-flowing architecture. This volume shows the highlights of European Art Nouveau as it was interpreted, everywhere a bit differently, in Germany, Austria, Bohemia, Hungary, Italy and Switzerland. Konemann, 2020.

Between 1890 and the beginning of the First World War, a new international style developed in architecture and design. Following the example of the English Arts and Crafts movement, the representatives of Art Nouveau turned against the eclectic excesses of the Victorian era, embracing organic forms, plant ornamentation and functional free-flowing architecture. This volume shows the highlights of European Art Nouveau as it was interpreted, everywhere a bit differently, in Germany, Austria, Bohemia, Hungary, Italy and Switzerland.

This is beautifully illustrated, with large, full page plates of the finest in period architecture, building facades, statues, graphics from book illustration to posters, furniture, jewelry and every possible object that was stylized into the unique Art Nouveau look.

Dr. Thomas Hauffe is an art historian. He wrote his doctorate on the “New German Design” of the 1980s and has published numerous articles on the history of design and art.
