Jugendstil

(style, 1880-1905)

The Art Nouveau began in London and is also known as Jugendstil in Austria and Germany, as Modernismo in Spain, and as Stile Liberty in Italy.

The term Art Nouveau refers to an avant-garde art movement, which began in Western Europe around 1880. With this style, artists rebelled against the way of classic art. It is a style in architecture, sculpture, paintings, and the applied and decorative arts. Artists and architects were proud to be craftsmen at the same time an Art Nouveau artist often mastered different artistic skills This is why this style can be found in a variety of forms especially in the decorative arts until today.

The style is ornamental and asymmetrical and artists used dreamlike and exotic forms with symbols of sexuality, death, and resurrection. It was influenced by the newly in fashion Japanese Art, by the English poet-painter William Blake and also by the Pre-Raphaelites.
