About Catawiki's art nouveau & art deco auction

Art Nouveau is a decorative style of art, made popular between 1890 and the outbreak of the First World War. The style is known for detailed linear designs and naturally-inspired flowing shapes. Art Nouveau had a significant influence on architectural design, with perhaps the most iconic examples being the florally influenced and distinctive Paris metro station arches, designed by Hector Guimard. Art Deco emerged in France just before the start of the First World War and grew in popularity around the world in the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. Eclectic in style, Art Deco combines traditional craft imagery with industrially inspired geometric shapes and patterns.

Catawiki’s Art Nouveau and Art Deco auctions have featured distinctive lots from around the world, including a bronze statue, Papillon by Francis Renaud, which sold for £2,084 and a large vase with grape vines by Emile Galle, which sold for £963.
