0861245180 192 pages including index, bibliography and chronology. Wonderfully illustrated in colour and black and white. Traces the roots of Art Nouveau in the English Arts and Crafts Movement and in Symbolist poetry and Expressionist painting - themselves reactions to rapid industrial change. Profiles the remarkable figures - such as Rene Lalique, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Antonia Gaudf and Charles Rennie Mackintosh - who gave shape and style to the movement. A fascinating visual record of the sheer exuberence and variety of the objets d'art produced in this vibrant and energetic era. Above-average wear. Usual library markings. Contents in nice shape.
