Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Art Nouveau movement covered it all—decorative arts, architecture, fashion, dance, advertising and more—and this book seeks to restore the movement's prominence in the discussion of modern art."

Los Angeles Times, 12/4/11

"The book explores the origins of art nouveau, possible theories as to its demise, and the all-important quandary that has plagued art historians for over a century: Is art nouveau a true artistic period?"

The Washington Post, 12/11/11

"Tall, narrow, with an elegant linear design like that of the aesthetic it celebrates, this book is a gorgeous object, with top-quality reproductions. Norbert Wolf's commentary is provocative, broad and deep, illuminating links between artists, architects and designers as diverse as Munch and Mondrian, Gaudí and Gallé."

Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times, 11/26/11
