Combinaisons Ornementales, published about 1901 by the Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, Paris, is considered the bible of decorative Art Nouveau elements. This exceptional collection of patterns and designs, a copy of which is in the Museums collection, was created by Georges Auriol (pseudonym for Jean-Georges Huyot, French, 1863 1938), Alphonse Maria Mucha (Czech, 18601939), and Maurice Pillard Verneuil (French, 18691942). Our exquisite cuff is adapted from a color pochoir (stencil) print in Combinaisons Ornementales.

Art History

Art Nouveau designs are characterized by organic whiplash curves, tentacle-like tendrils and flowers, and sinuous human and animal forms. In part a reaction to the mechanization of the Industrial Revolution, the New Art movement originated in France and Belgium in the 1880s and reached a high point at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
