The Art Nouveau movement was a bridge between Neoclassicism and Modernism and reached its popularity from 1890 to 1905. Luminary artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec; glass designers Rene Lalique and Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi among others used long fluid lines inspired from florals and plants in their work.
The gray granite E. E. Walling mausoleum in the Laurel Hill Cemetery at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is an outstanding example of Art Nouveau design. The flowing design around the doors and the bronze doors themselves exhibit the characteristics of the movement that made it popular.
Beautiful! I have always liked the look of Art Nouveau — and this mausoleum is so pretty. And you’re right – a perfect example of this style.
