JOHNSON, Diane Chalmers. (Dubuque, IA- ). As an art history professor at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, Johnson in September 1979 wrote American Art Nouveau, a three hundred page beautifully illustrated book resulting from five years of research. Tracing the Art Nouveau (New Art) movement, which began in Europe over one hundred years ago, the book was an extension of Johnson's doctoral dissertation written on Will Bradley, a pioneer in the American phase of the Art Nouveau movement.
