SPA--Art Nouveau


Here is my entry for Sunday Postcard Art's challenge--Art Nouveau, a period when art drew from natural forms in an incredibly stylized way. It is both sleek and opulent at the same time. There's never been anything else like it, and it affected not only "art", as painting and sculpture, but everything from furniture and home decor to architecture and advertising.
With thanks to Shadowhouse, Dover, the fabulous I. Forget for the postcard overlay and stamps, and to Alfonse Mucha, for the beauty.
