What? When? Where?

Art Nouveau (New Art) was an international style of decoration and architecture which developed in the 1880’s and 1890’sand was popular until the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Why?

A new group of artists wanted to invent a style of art which would make use of new materials. Architects wanted to experiment with glass and iron which allowed them to make use of curved lines, rather than the straight, solid forms that had been used in the past.

Artists were influenced by Eastern Art (from China and Japan) which made use of swerving lines and bold simplification.

Style

Although the style of Art Nouveau varied slightly from country to country, in general it can be recognised by the use of flowing lines based on natural forms. Plants, flowers , shells and animals were all sources of inspiration for designers

slide7
The style influenced all kinds of design from illustration, to architecture, interior design, furniture, graphic design and jewellery.
