UNITED KINGDOM - NORWICH - THE ANDERSON COLLECTION OF ART NOUVEAU

The Collection, which was given to the University of East Anglia in 1978 by Sir Colin and Lady Anderson, is remarkably representative of the breadth of Art Nouveau design and is considered one of the most exquisite privately assembled collections in the country.
On display you will find jewellery, furniture, glasswork and metalwork featuring the fluid organic lines and whiplash curves that characterised European styles in the last years of the 19th and early years of the 20th century.
The exhibition includes pieces by the leading exponents of Art Nouveau. Amongst these are works by Emile Gallé, who developed innovative cameo glass techniques; Archibald Knox, who was a leading designer for Liberty & Co; and René Lalique, who initiated a revolution in French jewellery design.
The Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau is exhibited every 3 years at the Sainsbury Centre.
