“Not when Im talking about the two of us. How egocentric of you.”
Sorry, but I really don’t think that makes any sense at all. Correct is correct, and incorrect is incorrect. It has nothing at all to do with my (considerably battered) ego.

Actually, the reason it didn’t make any sense was I thought I was responding to the other guy I had been engaged in conversation with, not a new person, namely you. It wasn’t your ego I thought I was referring to. Apologies.
As to Art Nouveau, if you saw Francis Ford Coppola’s movie of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, there are a couple of scenes of Lucy on her deathbed where Coppola uses a halo effect around Lucy’s neck that is a direct take from Alphonse Mucha’s style. To quote: “Mucha’s works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical-looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads.”
Also, Dracula himself (played by Gary Oldman) appears later in the film in a flowing robe which is pure Art Nouveau in design this time copped off from Gustav Klimt in pattern. I might add that Klimt’s lifelong companion, Emilie Floge, designed those kind of robes like Dracula wore, and Klimt would then provide the decorative design. Klimt also wore her smocks himself. I have a poster of him wearing one of her smocks while boating with her. One of the reasons I love that version of Dracula by Coppola, is it’s wonderful artistic Art Nouveau touches.
