Art Nouveau (new art in English), (1894-1914), is the French/Belgian name of an art movement in reaction to the academical schools at the end of the XIXth century . This movement was represented in Europe and also in the United States. This decorative antique lighting style took its inspiration into nature and women.
Here is an example of an incredible Circa 1900, Art Nouveau Chandelier with Brilliant Pressed Glass Stalactite Shades. The Art Nouveau detailing in the center body column shape really is exciting as a great example of the Art Nouveau tradition in the U. S.. Repeated modified Wave patterns and stylized organic repeated foliate pods are really quite unique. A really great Stairwell fixture, fixture for a Vaulted Ceiling as well as other spaces in your home.
