Art lovers and history students alike will welcome this new edition of a highly regarded work previously issued for the academic market.

The cultural and aesthetic movement known as New Art, and also termed "floral" for its penchant for biological forms, both natural and phytomorphous, started off in England through the celebrated shop "Liberty and Co", and subsequently spread from France too, through another commercial venture called precisely "Art Nouveau".
They sprouted up in painting, in sculpture, in the applied arts and in every object of everyday life: floral motifs, delicate wooded ribbings, vegetable environments, tendrils, mouldings.
At the same time, in a climate of spring blossoming, art was populated by the smallest and most vulnerable of animal creatures, by insects and small water molluscs, unusual and shy.
