My review of the week. Art Nouveau - links.

A bit of pictures to draw your attention:)

 
Okay, as I started this talk about art nouveau, I'll post some links about this beautiful style.
Besides, Casey asked me to post some links too.:)

Some basic information - here in my favourite Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Nouveau

Architecture - first of all, Gaudi, check this great site, you can spend hours there http://www.gaudidesigner.com/
Then fantastic works of Hector Guimard  http://lartnouveau.com/artistes/guimard.htm.
Victor Horta (http://www.hortamuseum.be/, http://www.cupola.com/html/bldgstru/artnouv/artnouv1.htm)

Sculpture -
Camille Claudel (http://www.aworldtowin.net/reviews/CamilleClaudel.html)
Rodin, of course (http://www.rodin-web.org/works/default.htm)

Glass works (mind-blowing works)

Jewelry



Furniture
Some basic links - http://www.artnouveaufurniture.com/,
Perfect reference from Victoria&Albert Museum  - http://www.vam.ac.uk/vastatic/microsites/1157_art_deco/about/starobjects/
General reference - http://www.artdecocollection.com/stock.htm

As for the pictures I posted before - it's Russian movement , you can find some at russian site http://www.rusmodern.com/ (click on the left menu, there are lots of items.)

Russian modern was popular, it was trying to combine art nouveau with traditional Russian style. So you could see characters from Russian tales in woodcarving, paintings, etc. The artists of that time were creating amazing houses, furniture, interiors in this style. But I think I need some time to find best examples of Russian modern, I'll post it later on.

DO you like Gaudí? His work is stunning. I love it, not only because I have lived in barcelona more than 30 years, it is because is great.
Have a look also to this house: Palau de la Música, just wonderful

Eva, thank you so much for the link! It's absolutely fantastic! I love Gaudi's art, I have 2 or 2 albums with his works - I can watch them for hours! He was a genius.

You're always welcome, Casey! I'll post some Russian links about Russian modern later, maybe next week when I gather more good resources.

Sorry, I deleted the previous comment because of a typing error.
I just found your blog and thank you so much for the links! I
love art nouveau, and one of my favourites from the period is van de Velde and especially his silver candelabra. I'm originally from Trondheim, Norway, where they have some of his work here:

Earlier this autumn I was so fortunate to find a period art nouveau mirror in dolls' size, which I have posted here:

I just came across your blog.Thank you for posting those links. Art Nouveau in dollhouse is very rare, it's the first blog I see speeking about. You make a wonderfull work on furniture. I'm working on a Art Nouveau dollhouse for almost two years now, and it's far from finished.You can see some photos of the building on www.humptydumptyhouse.com, but it's in french!
