Art Deco & Art Nouveau. A Decorative Revolution. Review by the Spanish artist Maite Rodriguez. From Thursday, April 18 2013 to Sunday, September 8 2013.
The two exhibitions simultaneously presented at the two sites belonging to the Pinacothèque in Paris, invite visitors to discover the development of the French Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements through one of its icons, Tamara de Lempicka.
In response to Classicism, Art Nouveau imposes no obligation on the artist. Conceived as an art of freedom, Art Nouveau broke free from the constraints that had previously hindered creation. Codified forms which are characteristics of the academic approach are shattered, and Art Nouveau emerged as a transgressive art form, with eroticism as a key element.
Art Nouveau was at its peak from 1890 to 1905. It quickly became the language of expression for the explosion of creativity, especially at the Universal Exhibition of 1900, and soon began to be denounced by the “inventors” of the movement.
The exhibition at the Pinacothèque in Paris brings together over two hundred objects in all areas of life and the arts, which in their own way revolutionized aesthetic and cultural thought
As a lover of Art deco and art Nouveau I always have to suggest to all my readers to visit the museum La Casa Lis. A modern palace in Salamanca, where you will find one of the biggest exhibitions of European Art Nouveau and Deco by his owner and founder Ramos Andrade.
