ART NOUVEAU vs ART DECO

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Event Details

This new talk by Don Hall, retired director of the Strasenburgh Planetarium and an antiques devotee, was inspired by Jeopardy on TV where the contestants were shown a photo of an Art Nouveau Tiffany glass window filled with leaves and twisting vines, then were asked to identify the style of art. One contestant incorrectly said, “Art Deco” while the other didn’t have a clue. Art Nouveau was “hot,” mostly in Europe from 1895 to 1940. Don’s program has dozens of visuals of the two styles along with wonderful examples of Art deco architecture in Rochester. Too bad the Jeopardy contestants didn’t have this talk available to them.
