Art Nouveau: From Mackintosh to Liberty : the Birth of a Style
Admired abroad, their designs disseminated by The Studio magazine and others, the Glasgow line entered and influenced Continental sensibility." "In London the Arts and Crafts movement permeated much of the creativity in the crafts, and affected both teaching and practice in the provinces, leading to a major renaissance in Birmingham. A London department store, Liberty Et Co, in the forefront of the Aesthetic Movement and the dissemination of Japanese and other Oriental artifacts, launched itself into the avant garde with the production of silver, pewter and jewellery whose style was inspired by a Manxman steeped in Celtic lore and design, Archibald Knox. The combination of commercial astuteness and creative originality was the source of the development of Art Nouveau in Britain, to which many of the Glasgow artists contributed.".
