He is remembered as one of the greatest decorative painters of the twentieth century, and he also produced one of the century's most significant bodies of erotic art.

An asymmetrical use of fanciful curves, forms from nature and colors characterize art nouveau motifs. These motifs are used not only in artwork, but also to decorate functional objects and architecture.


It was based on the premise that nature was the best source of inspiration and aesthetic principals, or ideas about beauty. The major characteristics of Art Nouveau architecture and art were curved forms and ornate embellishments with shapes from nature.


Art nouveau furniture is generally characterized by delicately curving lines and floral motifs. This kind of furniture often has no straight lines at all.


Art Nouveau focuses heavily on warm colors, with cool tones only used to highlight or accent. Particularly, Art Nouveau artists loved yellow. Loved it in every shade. When you add warm colors + lack of saturation, you get this very romantic, nostalgic, dreamy sort of feel to your piece.
