Art Nouveau Motifs and Vignettes
Carol Belanger Grafton
Dover Publications, 1989 - Design - 46 pages
Here is a dazzling collection of over 300 permission-free images representing the finest achievement in Art Nouveau design. Selected from archives of rare materials long out of print, these engaging designs range from a simple medallion, a small frame, and a tiny flourish to large and imposing panels, vignettes, and borders. The panels and vignettes depict such subjects as a goddess of the harvest, a praying knight, a preening peacock, and a lavish floral display. The borders and frames interweave a host of decorative elements, among them flowers, plants, birds, and animals.
This rich treasury of Art Nouveau design offers commercial artists, graphics and textile designers, and craftspeople authentic turn-of-the-century ambiance that will give special flair to advertisements, fabric designs, decorations, craft projects, and more.
