VIRTUAL Art Nouveau: Humanity in Harmony with the Natural World

VIRTUAL Art Nouveau: Humanity in Harmony with the Natural World

Join art instructor Janet Mandel as she gives an illustrated overview of Art Nouveau, an elegant decorative style that revolutionized visual art and architecture across Europe and the United States at the end of the 19th Century and into the 20th.

Art Nouveau designers believed that all the arts should work in harmony to create a “total work of art”—paintings, graphic art, buildings, interior design, furniture, textiles, clothing, ceramics, glass art,metal work, and jewelry— all inspired by graceful, natural forms.

Janet is now retired after teaching for 32 years in NJ’s public schools, the last eighteen of which were at Columbia High School in Maplewood, where she taught English, art history, and world languages and cultures.  She has been  presenting illustrated lectures on a variety of art history topics at museums, adult schools, libraries, senior centers, and similar venues.

Participants will be emailed the Zoom link a day before the program.

This event is made possible with the support of The Friends of the Livingston Public Library
