In the spirit of spontaneity (on which this blog has been based so far), I decided to visit a gorgeous Art Nouveau poster that a friend mentioned to me yesterday. Located just outside the beautiful Wisteria Library, Maude Adams as Joan of Arc, by Alphonse Mucha stands out stylistically in the 19th- and 20th-Century European Paintings gallery. The movement spanned the gamut of creative and decorative arts including architecture, furniture design, interior decoration, graphic design and fine arts. Coincidentally, the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany (from yesterday's post) is also considered to be of the Art Nouveau style.
