Val St. Lambert Art Nouveau Vase — Circa 1900, Val St. Lambert, Belgium. This delightful turn-of-the-century vase is masterfully cut in an exquisite Art Nouveau motif. Foliate tulips interspersed with butterflies around the collar surmount a bold fluted base, giving it visual balance. The delicate purple color is rare and the combination of clear, frosted, and half-tone lavenders complement it perfectly.

K is for Archibald Knox (Art Nouveau – #AtoZChallenge)

From Wikipedia:

Knox’s hundreds of designs for Liberty‘s made his style widely known,[8] (though not his name, as Liberty’s kept their designers anonymous) as did his watercolours, graphic designs and fonts. His design talent covered a wide range of objects, ornamental and utilitarian, and included silver and pewter tea sets, jewellery, inkwells, boxes, gravestones and even bank cheques,[9] much for Liberty’s Tudric (pewter) and Cymric (precious metals) ranges. The gravestone of Liberty’s founder, Arthur Lasenby Liberty, was designed by Knox.

Composed of platinum, gold, diamond, enamel, and opal. In this pendant for Liberty & Co., Knox used opal mosaic to depict a painterly scene of a boat outlined by a fiery sunset on London’s River Thames.

J is for Jugendstil (Art Nouveau – #AtoZChallenge)


by Lillian Csernica on April 12, 2017

From Macklowe Gallery:

Sometime synonymous with the term Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, meaning “Youth Style” in German, got its name from the magazine Jugend that first promoted the style. In the early 20th century the term only applied to two-dimensional examples in the graphic arts, later expanding to incorporate a broader range of the arts from architecture to decorative arts. Drawing from traditional German printmaking, the style uses precise and hard edges, an element that was rather different from the naturalistic style of the time.
