Discover the Difference – Art Deco and Art Nouveau HD

An interactive visual learning window that will bring closure to the task of differentiating two close but very different periods of design. Whether you are an artist, photographer, designer, decorator, picture framer or graphic arts student, this video sets the record straight on understanding Period Design. – M. Pacitti

Art Nouveau was an ornamental style of art that flourished between the 1890’s and 1910 throughout Europe and eventually North America. It was characterized by its use of a long, sinuous flowing lines as it was a deliberate attempt to create a new style, free of the imitative historicism that dominated much of 19th-century art and design.

The Art Deco movement beginning in the 1920’s, emerged as artists and designers integrated motifs from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, Asia, Mesoamerica and Oceania with Machine Age elements. They created massive skyscrapers, huge ocean liners and some of the best-designed transportation vehicles. Art Deco was also influenced by Cubism, Constructivism, Functionalism, Modernism, and Futurism. Despite it’s shorter life span in France, Art Deco made its way to North America and flourished up until the 1940’s. Increase your knowledge through Visual Learning.

  1. I love the hemisphere comparison. As a person who had some brain damage in the left hemisphere,I completely relate. I was always a right-hemisphere intuitive improvising musician,'artist' and conversationalist. It explains why,even though I love both art movements,I identify with Art Nouveau more.

  2. One of the best videos I've ever seen on youtube! Danke, danke, danke!!
    I like both which probably means that both of my brain hemispheres are active^^

  3. Ein wunderbarer Lehrfilm, der jedermann verständlich sein dürfte. Würde gern ein paar Damen malen, hab aber leider keine Vorlagen. – DANKE!

  4. Sehr gut veranschaulicht!!! Ich glaube, den Unterschied schon recht gut zu kennen, da ich ausschließlich Art Deco sammle. Aber diese Gegenüberstellung beider Stile ist noch mal sehr interessant. Ich schaue mir auch immer wieder "Art Deco – Visual Learning" an und kann inzwischen alle Lieder der Andrew Sisters mitsingen.

  5. This is amazing. The way you taught it: I was never sure of the difference before, now I’ll always instantly get it! Thanks so much. This is just hidden gold.

  6. Art nouveau is for lazy people, trust me after illustrating in both styles i feel much more proud and accomplished of works done in art deco

  7. That was an awesome and amazing great video that was well produced and put together. The art deco period was awesome. This is one of the best videos I've seen yet.
