Description

The unity of art and life was the expressed goal of the Art Nouveau movement, the prelude to modernity. On the basis of shared ideas its adherents strove for a homogenous style, which nonetheless took on manifold variations in its expression. Dr. Gabriele Fahr-Becker pursues this yearning for an all-pervasive style in its impact on architecture, interior design, furniture, silver and gold-smithery, ceramics and glasswork, graphic arts and painting.
