Organised by the Réseau Art Nouveau Network in the framework of the European project "Art Nouveau & Ecology" (2010-2015) supported by the Culture 2007-2013 programme of the European Commission, the exhibition comprises two identical concurrent exhibitions and has begun its journey to all partner cities in October 2013.
After Brussels, the exhibition "The Nature of Art Nouveau" is presented in Nancy at the Palais du Gouvernement, second step of its European journey, from 20 December 2013 until 13 April 2014 and is accompanied with the exhibition "Florilège" (Anthology) from Nancy.
Nature was the major inspiration source of Art Nouveau at the end of the 19th century. Through all over Europe blows a new creative wind. In Nancy, the naturalistic inspiration peaks in the poetic creations of Gallé, Daum, Prouvé, Majorelle… "The Nature of Art Nouveau" evokes the sources and the development of this inspiration trough European examples, and "Florilège" (Anthology) illustrates by new pieces the vision of Nancy…
These two exhibitions will be both free and bilingual French-English.
