description

Summary

This cabinet is thought to have been designed by Louis Majorelle, who, along with Emile Gallé, was a leading exponent of the Art Nouveau movement in the town of Nancy in northeastern France. Art Nouveau varied from country to country and city to city. As practiced in Nancy, it was a sinuous, linear style with rich vegetal decorative details, frequently inspired by Japanese design.
