Flowering Lines: Rare Art Nouveau Graphics 1883-1911 [Softcover]
Romantic Art Nouveau artworks from the Golden Age of Vintage Poster Art: Rare images from the Century Guild Museum of Art archives.
Fantastic fairies, mesmerizing mermaids, and endless bouquets of elegant linework: an intimate collection of Nature-themed graphics from famous artists like Alphonse Mucha to rarely-seen Masters of Design from Austria, Italy, Germany, and the United States, at the close of the 19th century. Many of these images are unseen anywhere on the internet- this is a must-have for fans of Art Nouveau artworks!
For nearly twenty years Century Guild has exhibited rare artworks in venues as varied as L.A. Art, The Merchandise Mart International Antiques Fair, and San Diego Comic Con. Works previously in the Century Guild collection have been displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Detroit Institute of Art, and LACMA.
While the internet is a magnificent repository of data, we still love the idea of curling up with books! And many–if not most–of these images are not available on the internet at all... see them here in a fantastic resolution that allows you to see the magnificent details of the artwork! These artworks were all in our possession, professionally photographed and color corrected, and now printed for you to enjoy at the highest resolution possible.
Over seventy extremely rare images from the Century Guild collection are now collected in a beautiful keepsake book featuring full-page, ALL FULL-COLOR images and historical commentary.
5.5" x 8.5" softcover, 88pp full color throughout
