In the 1880s, while America was beginning its love affair with the British Arts & Crafts style of handmade and manufactured goods, Europe was beginning to explore a new and different style of furniture, architecture, ceramics and jewelry. This new approach to craft was to become known as âArt Nouveau.”
Based on his visits to museums in London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Nancy, and Paris, Alex Botkin will discuss and present photos of the different styles of Art Nouveau that emerged in Europe.
