DRAGON STYLE

The dragon style, which evolved out of the mid-19th-century national romantic movement, was a deliberate attempt to create a distinctive Norwegian style.

At the turn of the century, the dragon style could be found in architecture, furniture and silverware. Norwegian nationalist sentiment, culminating in the dissolution of the union with Sweden in 1905, was the driving force behind the style’s popularity. When the latest European trend, Art Nouveau, entered Norwegian architecture and art at the turn of the century, it fused with the dragon style to create a uniquely Norwegian version of Art Nouveau.
