Art Nouveau: The Nature of Dreams is a new exhibition to examine the first European style to self-consciously proclaim itself Modern Ð Art Nouveau was profoundly a product of its age.

A dazzling selection of ceramic, furniture, glass, jewellery, paintings, posters and prints, sculpture, and textiles will be on display, featuring interpretations of nature and the creation of a modern style.

Artists and designers will include RenŽ Lalique, Edgar Degas, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, William Morris; Alphonse Mucha and Gabriel Dante Rossetti.
