The ‘new art’ first made itself felt around 1895, in architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics and the other applied arts, and fell into eclipse after World War I, until its rediscovery in the 1960s.

Alastair Duncan tells the story of the meteoric rise and fall of Art Nouveau, introducing the main personalities – Mucha, Gallé, Lalique, Tiffany and many others.
