Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Art Nouveau conquered design in the 1890s, reshaping the decorative arts with its sensuous interpretations of natural forms. French designer Maurice Pillard Verneuil (1869-1942), a student of the great artist Eugene Grasset and one of the style's greatest champions, was particularly fascinated by the decorative potential of flowers. This unique source book presents Verneuil's dazzling variations on bulbs, garden flowers, wildflowers, and aquatic plants for wallpapers, textiles, ceramics, stained glass, carved wood, and metalwork — all as fresh now as they were when Art Nouveau really was new.

Decorative Flowers reproduces Verneuil's careful botanical studies of individual irises, lilies, anemones, thistles, and other flowers, and the stylized motifs he created using their petals, stems, leaves, closed buds, and opened blossoms. Rendered in the delicate colors and distinctive rhythms of Art Nouveau, they demonstrate how plants can be transformed into sophisticated designs for nearly every medium of the applied arts.
