"Art Nouveau 1890-1914"
2000-04-06 until 2000-07-30
Victoria & Albert Museum
London, , UK United Kingdom

Art Nouveau 1890-1914 is a timely reappraisal of an extraordinary style that flourished in a world grappling with new ideas and rapid social change. One hundred years on, the much-anticipated V&A exhibition will re-examine the many cultural and artistic influences on Art Nouveau and the diverse range of artforms in which it was embodied.

Decadent yet popular, loved and hated, Art Nouveau was a complicated style for a complicated time. In an age defined by mass consumption, urbanisation and modernity, exponents of the new art sought to modernise culture itself, bringing about an extraordinary fusion of function and decoration. From biscuit tins to pornography, shop fronts to furniture, Art Nouveau gave rise to the concept of an all-encompassing lifestyle environment - a total work of art designed to appeal to the broadest possible audience.
