You inspired this, Unknown!!!

I'd seen his work, but I didn't know his name until you suggested it.  The rest is history.....



Truly, truly a great artist......

Glad you liked it.

Hugs,

Hi Bianca

I have made some efforts in trying to do work in this style... I love the floral framing and I think it works great for book covers.

Hi Jennifer

His art is cool! isn't it.

I have been making bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings in copper just like the arm

Who knew I was doing it in the "Art Nouveau" style?

Brooch, ca. 1900



Manufacturer: Georges Fouquet (French, 1862–1957);

Designer: Alphonse Mucha (Czech, 1860–1939)


Gold, enamel, mother-of-pearl, opal, emerald,
colored stones, gold paint; Diam. 1/2 in. (1.3 cm)


Gift of Eva and Michael Chow, 2003 (2003.560)





This remarkable brooch is a highlight of the three-year partnership of Georges Fouquet, the French jeweler known for his inventiveness and high-quality execution, and Alphonse Mucha, the Czech graphic artist whose work perhaps best epitomizes the decorative luxuries of the Art Nouveau style. The two men collaborated from 1899 to 1901. At a time when the emphasis had been on precious stones in traditional settings usually derived from the Louis XVI period, Fouquet and Mucha together redefined fine jewelry design, espousing the belief that the beauty of a jewel depends on its artistic conception. Materials were chosen for their contribution to the overall design, not for their intrinsic value.

Mucha conceived a spectacular series of elaborate jewels to be executed by Fouquet in his Paris atelier. Those objects formed the centerpiece of Fouquet's display at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris. In 1901, he asked Mucha to carry out an idea that he had kept in mind for a number of years: Fouquet wanted new premises in which the interior decoration harmonized with the jewelry he was creating. By the end of the year, he had moved his business to the Rue Royale, where the interiors were of unparalleled Art Nouveau sumptuousness.

MUCHA IN HIS STUDIO







Czech artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) created lush, decorative and highly seductive images that

captured the philosophy of Art Nouveau as few others could. Mucha’s style appeals to the broadest of

audiences. His designs are icons of their time and continue to draw enthusiastic admirers.



Posters, note cards, tote bags, t-shirts and much more sport reproductions of his graceful

mademoiselles.

                                                             Well, the spiral is pretty well universal, Unk.

I honestly believe that it is because it's so easy and fun to work with, not for any 'esoteric'
or occult meaning.  But people really like to read a lot of 'stuff' in things....

Anyhoo, FLOWERS and JEWELLERY, my two favorite things.

Oh, yes, GEMSTONES too:  did you see that emerald brooch/pendant?

YUM....
