The luminous beauty of stained glass art found a perfect partner at the turn of the century in the swirling, organic forms of Art Nouveau. Characterized by flowing, brilliantly colored designs depicting flora, fauna, and female figures, the motifs continue to be popular choices for a variety of stained glass projects.
This collection of more than 100 authentic Art Nouveau stained glass patterns, beautifully adapted by Carolyn Relei, includes boldly outlined figures of a lovely winged damsel surrounded by flowers and vines, a vase of lush blossoms, a butterfly whose wing patterns are repeated in the design's floral theme, and scores of other exotic, stylized images.
Handsomely displayed in rectangular, oval, circular, and semicircular frames, these royalty-free patterns — accessible to stained glass workers at all levels of expertise — will also find a wide range of use among graphic artists, designers, and needlecrafters. Some patterns, such as a single blossom in an oval frame, are simple enough for beginners; more challenging motifs, such as a rectangular presentation of full-blown blossoms on willowy stems, will appeal to intermediate and advanced craftworkers. All are sure to attract workers in stained glass who admire Art Nouveau style.
