Collections

The term art nouveau is used to describe a group of national styles that flourished in Europe and America between 1890 and 1905.

Sir Colin and Lady Anderson were among the first British collectors of art nouveau . The first pieces were bought in 1960, the last in 1971. During this decade the Andersons acquired according to style rather than value, forming a collection that includes not only pieces by leading exponents of art nouveau such as the American Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Frenchmen Emile Gallé and René Lalique, but also inexpensive commercially produced items by unknown designers.

The Anderson Collection most fully represents the French exponents of art nouveau associated with the Ecole de Nancy and makers who, both in France and Britain, worked across a range of disciplines such as glassware and furniture, metalware and jewellery.
