Anton Seder

Art, as far as it is able, follows nature, as a pupil imitates his master; thus your art must be, as it were, God's grandchild.
~Dante Alighieri

Seder definitely is a child of the art nouveau period...and his work is beautiful.

I like his "hook" (dividing the page into blocks)...these prints would make wonderful wall-hangings.

I especially liked his Root Vegetables print (maybe because I'm thinking about our garden at the moment. :-)

I adore art nouveau, but had never heard of Anton Seder before. My fav here is Sea Life. And I, too, really like the "compartments" in his design work. Thanks for sharing this, it was fascinating!
