Art Nouveau is an elegant decorative style that revolutionized visual art and architecture across Europe and the United States at the end of the 19th Century and into the 20th. Art Nouveau designers believed that all the arts should work in harmony to create a “total work of art” or Gesamtkunstwerk —paintings, graphic art, buildings, interior design, furniture, textiles, clothes, ceramics, glass art, metalwork and jewelry — all inspired by graceful, natural forms.
