Considered the bible of decorative Art Nouveau elements, this exceptional portfolio 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).

Art History

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. Its graceful silhouette and rich, iridescent hues were adapted to every manner of the decorative arts: textiles and graphic design; porcelain, glass and metalwork; even furniture and interior decoration.
