Art Nouveau mural restoration and over-paint removal project rediscovers acres of original 1904 decorations and art! This amazing work is part of the complete restoration of this Grand Hotel in San Pellegrino (BG), Italy which has stood abandoned since the early 1970s. A behind the scenes look where tourists can not go – A 1904 Art Nouveau Jewel
Beginning in about 1890, Art Nouveau was an international style of art, architecture and especially the decorative arts, that was most popular at the time the Grand Hotel was built. It’s graphic designs of natural forms particularly the curved lines of plants and flowers were thoroughly embraced by the upper society of the Gilded Age. English uses the French name Art Nouveau (new art) but the Italians used the term Liberty Style.
Art Nouveau embraces the decorating of a wide range of fine and decorative arts, including architecture, painting, graphic art, interior design, jewelry, furniture, textiles, ceramics, glass art, and metal work.
By 1910, Art Nouveau morphed into the dominant international European architectural and decorative style, Art Deco… but in the town of San Pellegrino Italy, the entire town embraced this gorgeous Italian version of design they call “Liberty.”
