Art Nouveau: The Nature of Dreams (7 July – 3 January 2021)

Art Nouveau: The Nature of Dreams will examine the spectacular, and controversial vision of art practice that raged across the Western world from the end of the 19th century: Art Nouveau.
The role of nature will be another key focus of the exhibition. The common theme of translating plants into patterns will be explored as a defining feature of the modern style. Art and objects will represent Art Nouveau from different countries, where it appeared characterised as flowing, tensile line, and dramatic movement, or by organic imagery combined with an informal geometry.
Artists and designers will include René Lalique, Edgar Degas, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, William Morris; Alphonse Mucha and Gabriel Dante Rossetti.
The exhibition will be curated by Professor Paul Greenhalgh. It will contain over 150 works of varying sizes, and will be accompanied by a substantial catalogue.
Open 7 July 2020 – 3 January 2021
Closed Mondays including bank holidays
