With this exhibition from its permanent collection, the Morse presents objects that represent the exciting range of the bold international decorative arts movement known as Art Nouveau at the turn of the last century.
The exhibition includes furniture, architectural ornament, windows, lamps, jewelry, ceramics, and art glass from more than 25 artists and designers working across nine countries as well as decorative objects introduced by Liberty and Co. in London, the famed gallery L’Art Nouveau in Paris and Tiffany & Co. in New York. Among those artists represented are such noted figures of the movement as Hector Guimard, Emile Gallé and René Lalique of France, and Louis Comfort Tiffany and Louis Sullivan of the United States.
