What is art nouveau!

 

 Whoa, art nouveau?        

Whoa, art nouveau? Really what is art noveau? Art Nouveau was a decorative art style that flourished from the 1890's until about 1910. The art nouveau movement originated in France, but spread through the rest of Europe, the United States, and Australia. Art nouveau means new art in French. The term came from the name of the Parisian art gallery, Maison de l'art Nouveau, which exhibited works created in the art nouveau style. The art nouveau movement has roots in Romanticism, Symbolism, and the British Arts and Crafts movement. Art nouveau was an ornate, elaborate style of art, characterized by long, flowing lines that twisted in a snakelike fashion. Art made in this style often depicted flowers, leaves and tendrils, and the hair and curvaceous bodies of beautiful women. The art nouveau style was seen mainly in glassware, jewellery, and other ornamental objects. The style was also seen in drawings, paintings, book illustrations, and posters. Art nouveau even influenced architecture ( http://www.artedcuatino.com}.
