A novel style for a new time – Excursions in Art Nouveau
Art Nouveau embraces a variety of design forms, from the more well-known stylised wavy lines and female figures to the creeping fauna of the forest and marshes. The style influenced our entire environment and the objects around us, everything from architecture to fashion, our views on nature and our living environment.
Well-known works on display
Among others, works by the well-known French artist in glass Emile Gallé, who was one of the foremost creative figures in Art Nouveau, are on display here. He is known above all as an artist in glass. He exhibited at the art and industry exhibition in Stockholm in 1897, where his glass attracted great interest. Gallé and other international craftsmen influenced Swedish design.
Nature as a source of inspiration
The exhibition is dedicated to the expression of Art Nouveau in Sweden. The new winds from the continent bringing art with nature as a source of inspiration were merged in Sweden with the national romantic movement, which emphasised local history, Nordic nature and folk culture.
