Nostalgia for Nature
August 19, 2017 through June 2, 2018
By the late nineteenth century industrialization had transformed Western society. Artists and designers looking to resist the Machine Age created their own artistic movements, specifically the Arts and Crafts Movement and Art Nouveau. What these styles had in common was a revival of the applied decorative arts making them affordable to the general public. This exhibition will feature objects made by Emile Gallé, René Lalique, Tiffany Studios, Rookwood Pottery and others.
