Description: Artist: HENRI I. BIAIS Size: 30 1/4 x 44 5/8 in./77 x 113.3 cm Opening its doors in 1899, Julius Meier-Graefe's La Maison Moderne was a competitor of Bing's Maison de l'Art Nouveau, both high-end art dealers focusing on the latest in new, modern art -- which, at the time, included the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Felix Aubert, and Pierre Selmersheim. The Maison, however, had a younger clientele and was more at the forefront of the movement than Bing's. Here, an elegantly-dressed woman peruses a variety of decorative vases in an Art Nouveau cabinet. Further on, we see a chain of rooms, all incredibly detailed and filled with artistic wonders. (great art nouveau)

Dimensions: 30 1/4 x 44 5/8 in./77 x 113.3 cm
