Art Nouveau Bing : Paris style 1900 by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Useful for art libraries." -- Metropolitan Museum Library staff

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a period of a little over fifteen years, beginning in the early 1960s, Paul Mellon (1907-1999) assembled one of the world's greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. As part of his extensive collecting of British art, he purchased several distinguished private collections of British watercolors, enriching and expanding them with purchases reflecting his own taste." "This catalogue of an exhibition celebrating the centenary of Paul Mellon's birth features eighty-eight outstanding watercolors from the fifty thousand works of art on paper with which he endowed the Yale Center for British Art. The selection spans roughly the hundred years from the emergence of watercolor painting in the mid-eighteenth century to its apogee in the mid-nineteenth. These works highlight the diversity of British watercolor painting, showcasing both landscape and figurative subjects by some of the principal artists working in the medium, including Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Rowlandson, William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable."--Jacket
