“Sex and Sensibility: The Allure of Art Nouveau,” a BBC Four documentary featuring the work of many of the fin-de-siecle artists, is available for free on FilmOn.
The documentary is hosted by BBC’s Stephen Smith as he takes viewers through the lives of several female Art Nouveau artists. Here’s more about the documentary.
“Britain’s art nouveau heritage is excavated as cultural correspondent Stephen Smith unearths the bright, controversial but brief career of Aubrey Beardsley. On a mission to uncover lesser known stars of Britain’s version of this continental fin-de-siecle-style, he explores the stunning work of Mary Watts and the massive influence of department store entrepreneur Arthur Liberty. In Scotland, he celebrates the innovative art nouveau of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, but looks harder at the extraordinary and influential work of Mackintosh’s wife, Margaret MacDonald.”
