'..a biographer of supreme intelligence and industry, since the bibliography is immense and he has delved into it with extraordinary taste and imagination.' - The Spectator 'An excellent book, detailed where detail was still needed, sensibly perfunctory where almost everything possible has already been told and said.' - The Observer 'M. Jullian's book succeeds in keeping the reader's interest unflaggingly alive.' - The Economist

In an earlier work I have traced the development of Art Nouveau from its inception, through the man who was its most active propagator in France - Robert de Montesheights and the depth of aestheticism.
