Summary
Uncovering how the extraordinary style first erupted into the cityscape, this program explores Paris's bohemian past and the controversial figures who inspired the Art Nouveau movement there. Cultural correspondent Stephen Smith builds a picture of fin de siècle Paris through a look at Alphonse Mucha's sensual posters of Sarah Bernhardt and the exquisite jewelry of René Lalique, and by visiting iconic locations such as Maxim's. Through the work of glassmaker Emile Gallé and architect Hector Guimard, Smith also explains how artists risked their reputations to create works they thought could effect social change.
