Synopsis:
The Art Nouveau movement was dominated by the Parisian art gallery of the same name, managed by the key figure of Siegfried Bing (1838-1905). An indefatigable industrialist, art dealer, collector and sponsor, Bing shaped the arts scene of the late nineteenth century through the tireless dissemination and promotion of works by artists as diverse and talented as Munch, Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul-Albert Besnard, Georges de Feure, Eugene Gaillard, Edward Colonna or Henry van de Velde. He received the support of Vincent van Gogh, who became his client.
With a base in the Japanese port of Yokohama, Bing played was instrumental in importing Asian arts, while bridging the old world and the new by opening up Europe to the prestigious glass or pottery works of Tiffany's, Rookwood's or Grueby's. From his beginnings in a French ceramics factory until the culmination of his career at the 1900 Paris World Exhibition, this is his story.
