If we linger over the Belgian artists, it is because of the important role they played in the renewal of the decorative arts, especially furniture.  In this, Belgium, for better or worse, deserves as much credit as England. From England and Belgium the movement then extended to the northern countries and to France, the United States and Germany.
It is true that Germany needed these decorations to help make its Art Nouveau pillars and its geometric furniture decorated with rigid mouldings borrowed from ancient Greek monuments more palpable. (Remember it was only fifty years ago that King Louis of Bavaria had made his capital Munich as Greek as possible).
Displaying the individual character that comes from local resources, customs, and taste, Art Nouveau then also appeared in Austria, Denmark and the Netherlands.
At no point did England, the Netherlands, or Germany excel in statuary, which almost completely disappeared from their versions of Art Nouveau. In order to entertain the eye their artists instead gave precedence to shiny brass decoration cut in the form of openwork arabesques and attached to woods that were either naturally rich in colour or artificially highlighted.See All

Nothing replaces text when it comes to providing information, but how dull our world would be without the imagery that has been a part of publications from the beginning. The very first book ever published, the Gutenberg Bible, contains exquisite illustrations, following a tradition of such ornamentation that extended to cultures all around the world and has lasted to today's new digital medium.
The graphics files we use on the Web have become so ubiquitous that it's difficult to imagine not having them. Computer graphics, though, are relatively new. They originated at MIT when a student named Ivan Sutherland used a light pen to draw objects to a computer in 1960. The type of image he created is known as a vector graphic. It's called this because the image is created through vectors or paths between mathematically derived computer points, and controlled by commands issued via an application of some form. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), featured in several chapters throughout this book, is an example of this type of graphic.See All
