Art-nouveau Prague

Since the collapse of the iron curtain, Prague has become one of Europe's – and the world's – most popular tourist destinations. As in London, Paris, and Rome, visitors flock to the gorgeous buildings and monuments that grace the streets of Prague, entranced by structures ranging from Gothic and baroque to neoclassical and cubist. And while hundreds of thousands stroll over the Charles Bridge and gaze up at the St. Vitus Cathedral each year, far fewer venture away from the crowds to seek out the countless gems of art nouveau peppered throughout Prague. With "Art-Nouveau Prague", Petr Wittlich – one of Europe's leading experts on nineteenth- and twentieth-century architecture – tours those monuments and buildings of Prague representative of the art nouveau movement and offers insightful commentary on each. Along the way, Wittlich visits such sites as the Municipal House, the Wilson Railway Station, the Grand Hotel Europa, and works by sculptors Frantisek Bilek, Ladislav Saloun, and Stanislav Sucharda.
An introductory essay by Wittlich emphasizing the role of art nouveau within contemporary currents of modern European art accompanies one hundred color illustrations of some of the most stunning examples of art nouveau architecture and decoration, while a detailed bibliography provides additional reading for each of the sites displayed in the book. "Art-Nouveau Prague" is a must-have for those traveling to Prague for the first time or for anyone who appreciates or wants to learn more about art nouveau style.
