An unrestrained, revolutionary style, Art Nouveau boldly disregarded many of the conventions of art and design upheld by the Victorian Age. With an imaginative approach to furniture, graphics, jewelry, architecture and essentialism, Art Nouveau incorporated new technologies and foreign design influences. Immortalizing the decadence and intimacy of its era, The Triumph of Nature: Art Nouveau from the Chrysler Museum of Art compiles around 120 of the finest Art Nouveau pieces from the Chrysler Museum of Art, largely bequeathed by Walter P. and Jean Chrysler.

Designers like de Feure, Majorelle, and Gallé customized their creations to encompass Art Nouveau, crafting elaborate visual constellations in different environments such as domestic spaces. This lavish publication features a plethora of Art Nouveau artifacts and mementos—furniture, paintings, sculptures, book covers, posters, prints, lamps, glass and more—all of them originally designed to complement each other in elaborate ensembles.
