The Golden Age of Art Nouveau (Klimt, Mucha, Beardsley)

Yesterday, i watched “Something Nouveau” multimedia show in MODA gallery (2nd fl.), River City Bangkok. MODA is mean Museum of Digital Art.

Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, living in Paris during the Art Nouveau period, best known for his distinctly stylized and decorative theatrical posters.

“Something Nouveau” brings the Art Nouveau movement, represented by Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, and Aubrey Beardsley, to life. 

Aubrey Vincent Beardsley was an English illustrator and author. His drawings in black ink, influenced by the style of Japanese woodcuts, emphasized the grotesque, the decadent, and the erotic.

Art Nouveau, ornamental style of art that flourished between about 1890 and 1910 throughout Europe and the United States. Art Nouveau is characterized by its use of a long, sinuous, organic line and was employed most often in architecture, interior design, jewelry and glass design, posters, and illustration.

Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.
Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objets d’art. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.

“Death and life”

Over five hundred images of beautiful masterpieces are projected to large screens, placed at different angles in a huge multimedia room. The visitor gets the unique opportunity to have a close look to every tiny detail, which is known to be very important and emotionally charged in Art Nouveau works.
