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.
