Art Nouveau Floral Designs

Front Cover
Eugene Grasset (1845-1917), the Swiss painter, sculptor, and illustrator, was a pioneer in Art Nouveau design, and the original book from which these color plates are taken is still acknowledged as a major source of Art Nouveau patterns and motifs. Grasset illustrated each plant in the manner of a botanical watercolor and then developed the natural structure and tones in different pattern and color combinations. All the plates included here give a true flavor of Grasset's original volume, and form an invaluable compendium of decorative motifs and color schemes that will inspire illustrators, designers, and everyone who appreciates Art Nouveau.
