Spotlight on Art Nouveau Posters

17th May 2019

[via our Instagram stories and WordPress blog:

PT1040_1_m  Art Nouveau was an art movement developed from the 1890s to the 1910s, inspired by natural flowing curved lines, female forms and stylised botanical shapes.

This “New Art” movement influenced all aspects of applied art and design, including architecture, painting, graphic design, jewellery and metal work. The French name for this movement was also known as Secessionism and Jugendstil (among others).

A highly decorative style, Art Nouveau drew on nature and fantasy, as well as other developing movements of the time including the floral work of William Morris, the Arts and Crafts movement, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, French Rococo and Japanese art.

Their vibrant designs often incorporated free-spirited females of the optimistic Belle Epoque period; the ‘Golden Age’ before the outbreak of World War One. Art Nouveau paved the way for Art Deco and the later Modernism art movement.
