When industrialism flourished sometime during the turn of the 19th century a couple of artists decided it was time for a revolution. They wanted to prove what the hand could do and machine could not. Accordingly, they began painting patterns that went above and beyond every rule and tradition known to man during that era. And, despite the fact that their patterns were full of drawings of beautiful, winding plants revealing nothing but the telltale signs of true romantics, the artists were all depicted as vulgar rebels. Today, their work of art is called Jugend, or Art Nouveau in French. And, should you take a closer look you’ll find every characteristic of a true revolutionary romantic: sweeping unending lines, rhythmically repeated flowers and abstract background lines in total harmony with Jugendstyle painted stems. Quite simply, nature’s harp at play.
