Emile Gallé and the Origins of Art Nouveau


The Bowes Museum's coleections include an early commission from Gallé, a glass caberet set made to order in 1872 for Joséphine Bowes. It forms the starting point for this exploration of Art Nouveau, which defined a broad movement of style and ideas. The exhibition will explore its main themes and inspirations: the natural world, women, and Japanese art and design. In addition to Gallé, works by Lalique, Minton, Whistler, Sevres, Tiffany and Rozenburg will be on display.
