The intricate and seducing motifs in the patterns are taken from windows, ceramics, tiles, and gates and are dedicated to excellent artistic centers: Vienna, Nancy, Valencia, Colonia, Vichy, and Taormina.
VIENNA: Vienna is the city where Art Nouveau found its most significant expression and realization, due to the Secessionist movement. The inscription on the Secession building embodies the spirit of the movement: “To every age its art, to every art its freedom.”
NANCY: The seat of ‘Ecole de Nancy,’ a gathering of artists using plants as their main inspiration, was the witness of a new dynamism in the field of decorative arts and became together with Paris, one of the most important places of Art Nouveau in France.
VALENCIA: At the beginning of the 20th century, Valencia went through an evolution that is known as the art movement Modernism; where a variety of buildings and constructions went from the architectural style Rationalism to a more romantic style. In this time, Valencia took over some characteristics of this movement, such as the use of iron, the ceramics and the glass as decorative materials with extraordinary patterns.
COLOGNE: German Art Nouveau is commonly known by its German name, Jugendstil. In German representation, we can find a variety of different methods, applied by the various individual artists and features the use of hard lines as well as sinuous curves. In Cologne, the graphic arts flourished in this period, thanks to new technologies of printing, particularly lithography which allowed the mass production of colored posters.
