Description

Favored for its shimmering exoticism by champions of the Aesthetic and Art Nouveau movements, the peacock feather enjoyed a lively vogue as a design motif in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A delicate en tremblant peacock feather brooch (French, 192535) in the Museums collection, exquisitely fashioned in gold inset with sapphires, emeralds, topaz, diamonds, and amethyst, is the source for our top.

Cotton/Spandex, with crystals. Classic fit. 3/4 sleeves. Imported. Machine washable.

Art History

In part a reaction to the mechanization of the Industrial Revolution, Art Nouveau (New Art), with its flowing lines, whiplash curves, and lavish botanical and animal patterns, originated in France and Belgium in the 1880s. Reaching its pinnacle at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, it spread throughout Western Europe and the United States, influencing everything from jewelry to furniture design. Lasting up until the First World War, Art Nouveaus fluid style can be seen as a metaphor for creative freedom and a release from the weight of artistic tradition.
