Room with Art Nouveau art objects

The last room in the decorative art exhibition is dedicated to Art Nouveau, which replaced Historism in the 1890s and lasted until the World War I. This room mainly displays work by French artists – furniture by Louis Majorelle and Émile Gallé, as well as a collection of glass ware by the Daum brothers, Émile Gallé, André Delatte and other glass makers. The collection of Neoclassical furniture reflects the emerging trends of 1905 when a backlash against the decorative exaggeration of Art Nouveau first took place, marking the return to the examples of late 18th and early 19th century architecture and decorative art. Neoclassical style is widely represented in Latvian urban architecture and manor houses.
