Art Nouveau. The triumph of Beauty.
17/04/2019 > 26/01/2020
By showcasing posters and paintings, sculptures, furniture and ceramics, the exhibition underscores the extraordinary artistic and artisanal blossoming that swept over and ultimately overhauled decorative taste at the beginning of the twentieth century.
Art Nouveau was an artistic movement that, rejecting realism and scientific thought, pursued dreamlike and visionary worlds, relying on soft and sinuous line to accentuate elegant decorations.
Through creating replicas of Parisian living spaces, the exhibition also narrates art and everyday life with an innovative display that recreates atmosphere and furnishings of the time.
