Art Nouveau

Sunday, July 22, 2012

ART NOUVEAU is my favorite style ever...

Did you know?

Art Nouveau is an international philosophy and style of art, architecture andapplied art—especially the decorative arts—that were most popular during 1890–1910.

The name "Art Nouveau" is French for "new art".

It is known also as Jugendstil, pronounced [ˈjuːɡn̩tʃtiːl ], German for "youth style", named after the magazine Jugend, which promoted it, asModern (Модерн) in Russia, perhaps named after Parisian gallery "La Maison Moderne", as Secession in Austria-Hungary and its successor states after the Viennese group of artists, and, in Italy, as Stile Liberty from the department store in London, Liberty & Co., which popularised the style. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment. It is also considered a philosophy of design of furniture, which was designed according to the whole building and made part of ordinary life.

Victor Horta, staircase

The style was influenced strongly by Czech artist Alphonse Mucha, when Mucha produced a lithographed poster, which appeared on 1 January 1895 in the streets of Paris as an advertisement for the play Gismonda by Victorien Sardou, featuring Sarah Bernhardt.[4] It popularised the new artistic style and its creator to the citizens of Paris. Initially named Style Mucha, (Mucha Style), his style soon became known as Art Nouveau.

"Seasons" by Alphonse Mucha

Art Nouveau was most popular in Europe, but its influence was global. Hence, it is known in various guises with frequent localised tendencies.
In France, Hector Guimard's Paris metro entrances were of art nouveau style and Emile Gallé practised the style in Nancy.Victor Horta had a decisive effect on architecture in Belgium. Magazines like Jugend helped publicise the style in Germany, especially as a graphic artform, while the Vienna Secessionists influenced art and architecture throughout Austria-Hungary. Art Nouveau was also a style of distinct individuals such as Gustav Klimt, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Alphonse Mucha, René Lalique, Antoni Gaudí and Louis Comfort Tiffany, each of whom interpreted it in their own manner.

Metro entrance - Paris, France

Although Art Nouveau was replaced by 20th-century modernist styles, it is considered now as an important transition between the historicism of Neoclassicism and modernism. Furthermore, Art Nouveau monuments are now recognised by UNESCO with their World Heritage List as significant contributions to cultural heritage. The historic center of Riga, Latvia, with "the finest collection of art nouveau buildings in Europe", was included on the list during 1997 in part because of the "quality and the quantity of its Art Nouveau/Jugendstil architecture", and four Brussels town houses by Victor Horta were included during 2000 as "works of human creative genius" that are "outstanding examples of Art Nouveau architecture brilliantly illustrating the transition from the 19th to the 20th century in art, thought, and society".

Did you know about Pearl?

Pearls are categorized as organic gem material and are amongst the oldest of precious gems. In history pearls have been very valuable, second only to the diamond. The first record of the use of pearls in history is the fishing of the famous orient Basra pearl around the year 300 B.C.

Pearl is used to remove the evil effects of moon and it strengthens the mind and increases good sleep and cures insomnia. It is said to bestow the wearer with a good memory, cure uterine disorders, heart trouble, eye diseases, hysteria and pleurisy. It is also believed to increases sexual strength and makes conjugal life happy, removes melancholy and increases fortune. The gem must me mainly made in silver jewelry.

White or Cream is the color that comes to the mind when the word pearl is uttered. There are the rosée pearls that come in tints of pink, silver and white. Some of these may even have a yellowish tinge. The other fancy colors available in the market are yellow, bronze (champagne color pearl), gunmetal black, rose- pink, brown (chocolate color pearl), green and blue. 

p.s.: I'm planing to have a giveaway in July. I think it would be nice if the award would be a pearly jewelry. What do you think?

You can write some comments if you'd have something on your mind... <3

Enjoy your day!
