The Skin of a Line: Surface Conditions in the Ceramic Skin of Art Nouveau

The Skin of a Line: Surface Conditions in the Ceramic Skin of Art Nouveau Abstract This paper develops a material history of Art Nouveau with reference to the ceram ic façade of André Arfvidson’s block of artists’ studios at 31 rue Campagne-Première, Paris (1911). Tracking the constituent element of this façade (glazed tile), this paper narrativizes the exchanges between four contexts – industry, craft, architecture and art – that underscored the rise and fall of Art Nouveau in fin-de-siècle France. References are drawn widely from art and archaeology; treating materials as sources of knowledge, complicit in the processes of architectural history. Exploring the idea of Art Nouveau as a transitory movement, this paper fosters a novel reading of the ceramic skin of 31 rue Campagne-Première in material terms. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
