Item description for Art Nouveau: Utopia: Reconciling the Irreconcilable (Taschen's 25th Anniversary Special Editions Series) by Klaus-Jurgen Sembach...

TASCHEN's 25th anniversary - Special edition! Big-sized, new designed edition at special bestseller price! Art Nouveau, whose emergence at the same time as cinema was no mere coincidence, represents the most remarkable attempt to reconcile the demands of the technical age with the undying wish for beauty and glorification?or to pit them against the other. Here the reform movement of the turn of the century is not only dealt with as an artistic event, but those economic and political interests which inspired, supported, and handicapped it are also taken into account. In the chapters "Movement," "Unrest," and "Equilibrium," the historical phenomenon as a whole is characterised and is also presented with its own distinct local features. The centres of Brussels, Nancy, Barcelona, Glasgow, Helsinki and Chicago are dealt with in subchapters as are Munich, Darmstadt and Weimar. Finally, Vienna, that city in which the synthesis achieved its culmination, is described separately. The outstanding artists are examined in detail in connection with the respective cities of their greatest activity. The result is a complex picture of the symbiosis of architecture, furniture design, and craftsmanship with their corresponding approaches to artistic revitalization.

Reviews - What do customers think about Art Nouveau: Utopia: Reconciling the Irreconcilable (Taschen's 25th Anniversary Special Editions Series)?

Another great book for my Collection!!  Oct 28, 2007
I'm a design student- and this is great book of various Nouveau elements!!-Also a great read-besides reference
TASCHEN has become the name of excellence when one has to choose among collection of books about art.Curiously,i have found out that TASCHEN books of this sort ,the so called semi hard cover ones ,always have a tendacy to be over intellectual,while the less expensive ones are a lot more fun for the profanes in all of us.You get the story of ART NOUVEAU all right here,but beware of falling asleep over this book....There are many wonderfull art books edited by TASCHEN at a low price,choose those,you'll love them.Most great painters from the past two centuries are represented.
