About this Item

295, [1] pages. Illustrations (some in color). Notes. Bibliography. Index. Cover has slight wear. This is a complementary copy "With appreciation for our support as a Contributing Member of the Smithsonian National Associate Program." Published by Abrams in association with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Gabriel P. Weisberg is an American art historian. He is a professor of Nineteenth-Century Art and Decorative and Graphic Arts at the University of Minnesota. Professor Weisberg graduated from New York University in 1963 with a BA and continued his art history education at the Johns Hopkins University. Weisberg's doctoral dissertation was on the 19th century art critic Philippe Burty (1830-1890). In 1978 Editions Geoffroy-Dechaume published Weisberg's critical analysis on the life and work of the 19th century French Realist master Francois Bonvin. Professor Weisberg was a past president of the Association of Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art. In 2004 Professor Weisberg, along with Edwin Becker of the Van Gogh Museum and Evelyne Possémé of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, compiled the exhibition "L'Art Nouveau: The Bing Empire" which was at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The literature on Art Nouveau is extensive but little mention has been made of the man who created the name, Siegfried Bing, a leading figure in fin de siecle decorative arts and a moving force in the style that swept through Western Europe and the United States. Weisberg, along with SITES, has produced a visually delightful, detailed tribute to this elusive but effective artist-entrepreneur. The catalog traces Bing's life, involvement in Japanese arts, the creation of the gallery "L'Art Nouveau" and the atelier that flourished under his supervision. It was a union of art and industry aimed at design reform with an international style and no distinction between major or minor, fine or applied arts. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus.

From Library Journal:
