From about 1890 through 1910, a new organic style of decorative art flourished across Europe, which we now know as Art Nouveau. Celebrating the Dutch contribution to Art Nouveau through a tour of more than 100 works on paper—posters, decorative calendars, and illustrated books, as well as prints and drawings—this catalog from Museum of Fine Arts, Boston includes early drawings by Vincent van Gogh and Bart van der Leck, as well as recent rediscoveries from Jan Toorop, Theo Nieuwenhuis, Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita, Theo Hoytema, and G.W. Dijsselhof.
