Art Nouveau - Description
French for "The New Art." A style characterized by sensual linear designs based on plant and animal forms, strongly influenced by a craze for Japanese art. The style arose in Europe at the end of the 19th century, displacing borrowed historical styles that no longer seemed suitable for a rapidly evolving "modern" culture. Its curving lines and floral ornamentation soon spread to America as well, chiefly through ceramic and glass designs.
