Gladstone’s Library Lectures
In the ‘Belle Epoque’, an elegant and sinuous period style flourished. Deriving from Pre-Raphaelitism and the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau soon became the dominant style of Europe and America, spreading like wildfire among new and radical designers and fine artists. It encompassed an array of talents including the Aestheticism of Beardsley and Whistler, the Symbolism of Moreau and Khnopff, the Modernism of Klimt, and the individual genius of such artists as Alfons Mucha, Rene Lalique and Antoni Gaudi. This course looks at the richness of Art Nouveau in painting, illustration, sculpture, architecture, textiles, metalwork, glass, furniture, ceramics and more.
