Art Nouveau Swirl Brooch
This design is from the 1890s, by Alphonse Mucha, an art nouveau artist from the Czech Republic.
It’s natural for lovers of Celtic Art to be drawn towards the artistic world of Mucha, who was immersed in the art movement for the revival of Celtic knotwork. He drew inspiration from history and the world of plants. The flow of his linework appeals to a lost romantic vision of the world of the past, hidden in the misty tangle of forgotten dreams.
