The man who inspired the Art Nouveau movement is profiled in filmmaker Fran├žoise Levie's loving tribute to Siegfried Bing's endless contributions to the world of modern art. In addition to his tireless efforts in promoting such diverse artists as Toulouse-Lautrec and Munch, the owner of the Parisian Japanese import shop-turned-La Galeries d'Art Nouveau's rich artistic vision helped to inspire a whole new generation of artists to approach their work in a whole new light.
