Exhibition “Tulips from Baroque to Art Nouveau”
Exhibition “Tulips from Baroque to Art Nouveau” is in full blossom in the “Riga Art Nouveau Centre” museum! The exhibition open from 27.04.2016. till 12.06.2016.
The tulip motif was widely used in the Art Nouveau period because its slender stem, pointed leaves and graceful flower reflected the essence of the style. In this period tulips were not put in bouquets any longer, emphasising instead grace and elegance of the blossom.
