Art Nouveau - Women
On this board we highlight works with females as decorative elements, a common feature seen in the small-scale decorative arts and jewellery, furniture, paintings and printed material of the time. The erotic nature of women, half-nude with long, flowing hair complemented by floral ornamentation correspond to Art Nouveau’s aesthetics. In the poster art pioneered by Jules Cheret, they were carefree and fun-loving. More objects can be found on our portal www.europeana.eu.
