Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts | The First Moderns: Art Nouveau, from Nature to Abstraction

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts | The First Moderns: Art Nouveau, from Nature to Abstraction | 20th century antiques and collectables | Scoop.it

Norwich | 04.02.12 - 02.12.12

"The First Moderns is the first in a series of spectacular displays dedicated to the history of Modernism.

Treating Art Nouveau as the first modern design movement, the exhibition explores the progression of the style from natural to more abstract, geometric forms.

Drawing on the Sainsbury Centre’s permanent collections, The First Moderns highlights the role of artists and designers of the Art Nouveau style in the rise of Modernism. The display offers an opportunity to see the Centre’s Anderson Collection in a new way, comparing the naturalistic vitality of René Lalique’s jewellery and glass by Emile Gallé with the controlled style of Louis Majorelle and the geometric forms of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Josef Hoffmann."

Vintage Playboy eyewear

Vintage Playboy eyewear | 20th century antiques and collectables | Scoop.it

These very original Playboy sunglasses, called model 4675, were made in Germany. They are an adaptation of the aviator style sunglasses, but with some great, funky details. For example, the original Playboy logo is engraved on a small metal pad on the arms. There are also 4 metal studs along the front, which give a more aggressive look to the model.
