ART NOUVEAU AND MORE

Jason Jacques, at 29 East 73rd Street, after focusing on Art Nouveau ceramics for two decades, has filled half of his gallery with his own collection of contemporary abstract paintings and bronze sculptures and vessels by Martin Kline, an artist in Rhinebeck, N.Y. Mostly priced between $15,000 and $55,000, the Kline pieces (on view through early January) have paint drips and mossy textures that echo the glaze streaks and knobby forms on Mr. Jacques's century-old vases and hammered copper boxes (priced between a few thousand dollars and $90,000). Mr. Jacques said he set up the Kline show because so many Art Nouveau masterworks are now lodged in collections and not budging.
