The Lure of the Peacock: Iridescence and Immortality


Objects have many stories but this vase connects different cultures and different periods in more ways than most.  When it appeared in Rococo: The Continuing Curve 1730-2008 at CHNDM, the Peacock Vase represented with its organic, sinuous forms the re-emergence of a curvilinear aesthetic in the Art Nouveau era of the Rococo style created in the 18th century.

Tiffany and Carnegie


I love the fact that this Tiffany lamp was purchased by the Carnegies, and that Cooper-Hewitt is located in their former house—a Fifth Avenue mansion completed in 1902.

Art Nouveau Bing: The Paris Style 1900


An exhibition of 200 art nouveau works in tribute to Siegfried Bing, an entrepreneur and art connoisseur whose Paris gallery, "L'Art Nouveau," became synonymous with the new aesthetic vision he passionately promoted. On display are many of the pieces Bing sold or showed, including prints by Edvard Munch, furniture by Eugène Gaillard, textiles by Liberty of London, glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany, woodcuts by Félix Vallotton. L’Art Nouveau was only open from 1895 to 1904, but left an indelible mark on the art world.
