Art Nouveau

Collection Description

Art Nouveau, which flourished in many countries around the turn of the twentieth century, was a decorative style emphasizing curvilinear forms inspired by nature, especially plant-life. The Wolfsonian’s collection is especially strong in the Dutch and Italian variants of this style, known respectively as Nieuwe Kunst and Stile Floreale. Among the highlights are entire period rooms designed by Theodoor Nieuwenhuis and Agostino Lauro, as well as a large collection of Dutch Nieuwe Kunst bookbindings.
