Members’ Social Evening – Beauty and the Beasts
Wed 6th Nov 2019
In this talk by Will Gilding of Gildings Auctioneers he will elucidate the influence that the late 19th and early 20th century movements of Art Nouveau and Art Deco design have imprinted these images on the Western mind. Will will show us the weird and wonderful objects and artifacts all influenced by this movement, from the Victorian Art Pottery by the likes of the Martin Brothers and William Moorcroft to the female form celebrated in striking metal ware and the graphics by Alphonse Mucha: finishing with the flamboyant sculpture and glass ware of Art Deco.
