Art Nouveau: 50 Works of Art You Should Know

The heyday of the Art Nouveau style was relatively short, spanning the decades immediately before and after 1900. However it was a tremendously important period, not only for its radical shift away from the academic and romantic movements of the late 19th century, but also for its embrace of nature and natural forms.

Art Nouveau: 50 Works of Art You Should Know is an authoritative, accessible, and beautifully illustrated book that explores 50 of the most important works of the Art Nouveau movement, and shows how it impacted every artistic discipline, from architecture to graphic arts to painting to home décor.

Included are Charles Robinson Sykes's Spirit of Ecstasy sculpture, Antonio Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's Divan Japonais, Edvard Munch's Madonna, and Walter Crane's Neptune's Horses, among many other influential works.

Brief biographies of the artists are also included, making this a comprehensive yet compact reference for every art lover's library.
