This astounding Art Nouveau room screen is a masterpiece of sinuous aesthetics. Comprising two large panels, the screen is covered in majestic marquetry depicting aquatic flora crafted woods of varying shades framed by applied foliage to tremendous effect. Art Nouveau furnishings are among the most fascinating furniture on the market today. Though smaller pieces have been found, large items such as this screen are highly desirable and exceptionally rare.

Art Nouveau is instantly recognizable for its fluid and organic motifs, with curvilinear lines reflecting the asymmetrical patterns and objects found in nature. An avant-garde style that emerged in the early 1880s, it received widespread popularity almost simultaneously in Britain, France, Germany, Austria, Denmark, and America. The movement grew from a love of natural forms and Eastern art, as well as a rejection of the increasing use of machinery in furniture-building. Though most are familiar with the movement because of the exceptional jewelry & glass designed by makers such as Louis Comfort Tiffany and in the advertising posters created by artists like Alphonse Mucha, Art Nouveau influenced every kind of domestic art, including furnishings, decorative art and architecture. This complex style also embraced elements of the exotic and the fantastical in new and elegant ways. Beautifully exhibited by this important room screen, these elements combine to form a work that is at once vibrant and elegant.
