S.T. Dupont Art Nouveau Green Limited Edition Fountain Pen #31/4000Art nouveau or "turn-of-the-century style", is a romantic baroque style whose influence was essentially on architecture and the decorative arts. It brought out the ornamental quality of the curved line, whether floral (France, Spain) or geometrical (Germany, the United Kingdom). The name comes from the gallery that was opened in 1896 in Paris by Siefried Bing, and designates, in France and Britain, the movement known in Germany as "Jugndstil". By seeking a flexible, sinuous line, by playing with noble and traditional materials to reconstruct volumes, by reliving Chinese lacquer's first steps in Europe, S.T. Dupont wanted to recreate:
"the fusion of structure and decor" - P. Thiebaut
