NameEugene Grasset: A Passion for Design - ebook
DescriptionThis book is focused on Eugene Grasset who can be called The Father of Art Nouveau and who is also known to have had a great influence on Art Deco. Information about his work, life and and over 150 images are included in this book from http://www.ctgpublishing.com. Grasset was labeled by his contemporaries as a Universal Artist for several reasons. He understood a variety of materials, how each required a different approach and how each could be applied to the different branches of the decorative arts. Those who enjoy cubism may find themselves paying some tribute to Grasset’s geometric interpretations of nature. Grasset had many students including M.P. Verneuil, Mathurin Méheut, Augusto Giacometti, Paul Follot, and Paul Berthon. Louis Rhead has been quoted as owing his career to Grasset. Both Pierre Jeanneret and Le Corbusier were influenced by Grasset, the later being credited as a founder of modern architecture.
