ByAbigail R. Esman May 10, 2018 Beautiful women with long, flowing tresses; thickets of thistle and winding wisteria; elegant birds poised to take wing — they all sound so poetic. But form them into brooches, pendants and rings, and you have the beginnings of an iconic style. Or so it was at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, when René Lalique displayed tiaras adorned with nudes and necklaces twined with serpents, all enhanced by colorful, iridescent enamels and small gems. “It didn’t look like anything that came before it, or for that matter anything that came after it,” Elyse Zorn Karlin, co-director of the … [Read more...] about Recalling Art Nouveau: ‘It’s About Design’
