Period Paper is pleased to offer a gorgeous collection of prints in the Art Nouveau /Jugendstil art style from Modelli dÕarte decorativa. Modelli dÕarte decorativa was a periodical published in eight volumes from 1907-1917 in Milan, Italy by Bestetti & Tumminelli. Original items in this style continue to be some of the most highly sought after art and images from the early 20th century on eBay. Individual items from this particular collection are virtually never available online. The items in this rare collection include color lithographs and color photolithographs. The date provided is the last known date (1917). However, since this group is from volume three, it more likely dates from 1909. Perfect for framing, this collection will be of great interest to interior designers, decorators, and students and collectors of the Art Nouveau design style. Please note that we are providing two images of each item-- a closeup of the print and a second image which includes the caption and other information in the border area. Please see both images.

This piece was illustrated by Fiorini, Guido. Artist signature in print - embedded in image.
