Prominent dealer in Japanese art in 1985, Siegfried Bing renovated his gallery in Paris and named it Art Nouveau,  christening an international decorative arts style. Leading authority on 19th century European art, Art historian Gabriel P. Weisberg's extensive study of Bing's life and influence inspired him to being together the objects shown in this exhibition.  From the dust jacket: “For the first time, this book shows this seminal figure in the decorative arts field to admirers and collectors everywhere.”
