Art Nouveau conjures up images of nymph-like female figures and sinuous organic tendrils, as well as radical geometric simplicity. In its brief life span, which broached the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the style spread across the world in myriad incarnations. this comprehensive book places Art Nouveau in the context of its time and explores architecture, interior design, furniture, sculpture, painting, graphic arts and jewellery. It was used as the principal text on a course I have completed – Art Nouveau in Europe run online by Oxford University Continuing Education.

These plates are exquisite examples of Art Nouveau style. These are not from books; these are from a portfolio of loose. From the rare, ornamental design book Dekorative Vorbilder by Verlag Julius Hoffman, produced in the first part of the 20th century. This is from an ex-library collection that was to be discarded by a college library over 50 years ago, rescued by my father and only recently unpacked. Each page is embossed with a library stamp (see photos). Date: Volume XVIII (18), printed in 1907. Plate 53: Moderne Ornamentik (modern ornament); von G. Fucikova.

The Art Nouveau movement also took a lot of inspiration from Pre-Raphaelite painters like Edward Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The Pre-Raphaelite ideology was concerned with reforming the art world by rejecting the so-called mechanistic style adopted by Mannerism. Mannerism espoused asymmetrical and sometimes inelegant compositions by embellishing design qualities like balance, ideal beauty, and proportion. In particular, it was architectural historian and theorist Eugene Viollet-le-Duc and his seminal book Entretiens sur l'architecture that shaped a new generation of prominent designers and architects like Victor Horta and Louis Sullivan.

A study of Europe and America's boldest and most fashionable style.

The contents are excellent, but the edition I received was printed on demand, with very poor quality. Colour images are blurred and poorly reproduced.

This excellent book is part of the outstanding Phaidon Series Art and Ideas. It was used as the principal text on a course I have completed – Art Nouveau in Europe run online by Oxford University Continuing Education.

Art Nouveau dominated a variety of art forms at the turn of the last century. It was expressed differently in different European countries and had influence even further afield. Its sudden disappearance is something of a mystery – one discussed on the course. Escritt, who has his own answer to that conundrum, manages to explain its complex and even contradictory themes in a simple and direct manner.

Many of its designs - individual, elaborate and incredibly expensive - aimed to flatter the egos of the super-rich in Vienna and Brussels, without asking too much about where their money came from. This elitism still surrounds it today and, unfortunately, colours many histories of the style.
Escritt avoids that pompous artiness. He locates the movement in the social and economic circumstances of the times – instability, imperialism, class politics. Every object thus located is closely analysed – so one can appreciate the artistic merit and beauty while acknowledging the snobbery, even corruption, of its ownership. For me as a student it asked and answered the most important questions.

It is beautifully illustrated as are all the books in this series.

Not to be read at one sitting but to accompany you wherever you might travel – Art Nouveau pops up everywhere, but obviously on the Metro in Paris. As well as a great text for study programmes.

I loved the photos put in this book. The text was good too, if a little dry for my taste...
