Artist's Description

Ljubljana has many examples of Art Nouveau, this one is on an apartment building and features blooming roses, foliage and sunflowers.

The Art Nouveau style arose around the turn of the 20th Century.. In many areas, including the Slovene lands within Austria-Hungary, it became entwined with local nationalisms and was seen in many cases as a national style whose use carried a political subtext. In Ljubljana, nationally-conscious Slovenes used the style politically, using the Art Nouveau style to contrast the Historicist style preferred by the German community that controlled the city until the election of Hribar in 1896.
