Emile Gallé, Nature in Art

PrécédentSuivantIndex

a film by Damien Fritsch, 26' The work of Emile Gallé (1846-1904) is one of the essential references in Art Nouveau. The master of the "Ecole de Nancy" was a glassmaker, a furniture designer, a ceramist, but also a committed humanist and a well-known botanist who has left an important scientific work.

Gallé studied and sketched Lorraine's flora with meticulous care. He found inspiration in the shapes, curves and details of some flowers, but also some insects to create vases and furniture. His inspiration also came from Japanese painting and more particularly from Hokusaï, whom he considers to be a progressive painter of decorative art. Gallé thus leaves a sensitive and committed work that one hundred years after his death remains present and alive.
