Summary

Published in Paris before World War I, these decorative Art Nouveau graphics originally appeared in a now-rare periodical, La Decoration Artistique. This compilation presents 100 full-color plates in a beautiful assortment of naturalistic motifs and period designs that will prove essential to collectors of the era's best and hardest-to-find illustrations.
A splendid variety of images includes headpieces, typographical banners, and other designs rendered in the distinctive Art Nouveau style, all embellished with natural motifs, from parrots and peacocks to sinuous vines and flowers in full bloom. Other illustrations feature storefront signage for bakeries and cafes; decorative friezes of theatrical masks and grapevines; borders of blossoms, books, and birds; stenciled decorations for fire screens, and corner and ceiling ornaments. Art aficionados, designers, artists, art students, and anyone with a taste for Art Nouveau will delight in this extraordinary collection, which offers a lasting source of inspiration and pleasure.
