The 19th century definitely is the century of decorative arts. A profusion of styles develops. The advent of bourgeoisie leads to the creation of numerous pieces of art and furniture. The art of interior decoration and design is at the same time intimate and luxuriant. Eclecticism is the prominent sign of the spirit of the time, combining mediaeval, Renaissance, Baroque, and neoclassical elements.
This volume on 19th Century Ornament And Design includes: domestic objects; furniture; architecture; typography; textiles; jewelry; fashion and horseriding.
A great source of design examples for use as inspiration, reference or clip-art.
