What is Art Nouveau?

It is a new style that rejected the imitation of the past. Art Nouveau embraced new materials and electrical lighting as well as modern industrialization. It was a blending of art which included art glass, painting and sculpture. A period of great exploration and the embrace of returning to nature. Art and the objects of art become a part of the interior. It was a style that was very ornamental, but it was not based on past historical design and it always referenced nature. Below are pictures that highlight "a new style for a new age".
