sq4to, VII, 127pp. Hardcover with laminated boards and matching non-price-clipped d/w in as-new condition with no shelf wear, text on glossy paper also in pristine condition The Art Nouveau movement reached its height of popularity from 1890 to 1910 and took advantage of new production methods of the time enabling it to proliferate and fully establish itself. Though actually not one unified movement, the powerful artworks share certain themes in all their forms, such as the influence of Japonism, taking inspiration from nature, and using Symbolism to capture the mythical and spiritual. Beautifully illustrated and photographed with full page art reproductions occupying most pages, the book is separated into chapters for each relevant georaphical locality in the world with an extensive index of artworks at the rear. An essential asset for the art-lover.
