I gravitate towards Art Nouveau and Jugendstil, particularly the jewelry. Mucha's graphic work is stunning, but his silver designs are just as fascinating. I also recommend doing an image search for the jewelry of Rene Lalique (the dragonfly brooch!), the ceramics of Paul Daschel and Amphora Bohemia and the Reformkleid gown designs of Anna Muthesius and Emile Floge.
Beautiful ceramics. Their use of glaze and form is wonderful.

Antipodean revival looks interesting ( a new one for this 'Pom'), I must do more research on it !
(hope it doesn't drive up the prices of items up before you buy them), once you've got them you won't mind the price hitting the roof.



 Yes it has  a certain flavour  to it.  All the influences of  intrepid exploration  and empire building  evolving  into a style all its own  in the Antipodes.

I've just checked and there's and exhibition of Art Nouveau near me until December, I've seen it 3 or 4 times but it has some great pieces, including a dragonfly brooch by Lalique with 'pique a jour' wings which is just stunning. (and I can combine that with gathering mushrooms and chestnuts so won't complain about the entrance fee).

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
Thanks so much for the leads to learning more about these aesthetic movements, mr Shale and all the others who've contributed to this fascinating thread.

I can  mention the Casa Lis (Museum of Art Nouveau and Art Deco) in Salamance, housed in a magnificent residence constructed in the period with the original Art Nouveau stained glass in place.

There is this very interesting manga and anime series called XXX-Holic, which features ink/print (?) artwork which is very much between Art Nouveau and Art Deco. It incorporates the organic elements from Art Nouveau, and Japanese print styles (for obvious reasons), but also has a good deal of Art Deco elements in it.

I wonder if somesuch style could be developed exclusively for Steampunk.  Nouveaupunk if you will...  Grin
