Art Nouveau is a style, taking its name from French which literally means “new art” and it encompasses many art forms such as glassware, painting, architecture and furniture etc. It has influenced art ever since it appeared in late 19th century. This style, which had the incarnations throughout the western world in the early part of 20th century, is characterised by its dramatic curving lines and its use of stylized organic shapes. Many of its themes are presented quite abstractly and have been taken from nature. This style has its inspiration in Japanese art, high Victorian style and Roccoco and has affinities with the contemporary symbolist, Pre-Raphaelite, arts and crafts styles.
