SCVA: Sense and Sensuality: Art Nouveau 1890-1914

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, UK

14th Feb 2014 - 14th Dec 2014

In this major exploration of the Art Nouveau style, works from the collection of Gretha Arwas and Anderson Collections, among others, will explore the sensual and psychologically intense nature of the style and the period.

The exhibition marks the initiation of a collaboration between the Centre and Gretha Arwas, which will lead to the creation of a Foundation dedicated to the study and presentation of Art Nouveau.
