La Revue Blanche Pierre Bonnard 1894  At the end of the nineteenth century, Bonnard and the members of the Nabis group became dissatisfied with the existing forms of Western expression. The Nabis group did not limit itself to painting, but displayed an interest in all the decorative arts including prints, posters and furniture design, and turned to Japanese woodblock prints or other non-Western forms of art for inspiration as they experimented in new forms of creativity.

Genii (Figures in a Ballet) Paul Klee 1922  Genius, the root of the word "Genii" as used by Paul Klee in the title of this work, refers to protecting spirits in ancient Roman religion. In every person – and only in people – there dwells a genius that dies with that person.  The genius represents the personality and the capacity for procreation. This also gives rise to the word "genius", which we use today to refer to creative force and the source of inspiration of a particularly gifted…

Isolde Aubrey Beardsley 1898  In the tales of King Arthur the Irish princess Isolde and the knight Tristan are bound together by a love potion with ultimately tragic results. (Yeah the two stories are all muddled together) Although Aubrey Beardsley illustrated Malorys Le Morte dArthur a version of the medieval legend published in the 15th century the Isolde depicted here probably refers to the libretto of Wagners opera Tristan und Isolde. Beardsley greatly admired Wagner and said that he…

Sunflowers Eugène Grasset 1896  Many graphic artists in the Art Nouveau era were inspired by botanical illustrations and they transposed organic forms into decorative designs often collected in design sourcebooks. Some of the finest of these books were produced by the Swiss-born artist Eugène Grasset (1845-1917) and his pupil Maurice Pillard Verneuil (1869-1942). Interestingly Grasset developed a strong interest in Japanese art.  Grassets 1896 book La Plante et ses applications ornementales…

Nativity in an initial P Don Silvestro dei Gherarducci c. 1392-99  The Roman numeral XXXVIII on the recto of the leaf indicates it was originally folio 38 in the Gradual.

Room Perspective with Inhabitants  Paul Klee  1921  Paul Klee only rarely took an interest in perspectival constructions of spaces architectures and places. Very early in his work rather than traditional central perspective he opted for free methods of construction that were inspired most by Cubist ideas of composition but which also took them further. Another source of inspiration lay in the metaphysical squares and architectures of the Italian painter Giorgio de Chirico. De Chiricos works…

Girl on a Bridge in the Wind Suzuki Harunobu 1769  Harunobus prints are very specific depictions of intimacy. He became famous as an innovator of colour woodblock prints but his compositions confirm that he possessed not only technical acumen but also a great artistic talent.  The series Fūryū rokkasen refers to the so-called six immortal poets which include Fun'ya no Yasuhide  a court official and poet in the early Heian period (7941185). Almost a thousand years later one of Yasuhide's most…
