50 Works of Art You Should KnowBook - 2015
"A new edition to Prestel's popular "50s" series, this collection of the finest examples of art nouveau shows how the movement impacted every artistic discipline. The heyday of the art nouveau style was relatively short, spanning the decades immediately before and after 1900. However it was a tremendously important period, not only for its radical shift away from the academic and romantic movements of the late 19th century, but also for its embrace of nature and natural forms. This authoritative, accessible, and beautifully illustrated book explores fifty of the most important works of the Art Nouveau style." -- www.amazon.com.
