Welcome to the Art Nouveau Group.
Art Nouveau is an international style of art, architecture and design that is characterised by it’s highly-stylised, flowing, curvilinear designs often incorporating floral and other plant-inspired motifs as an homage to the beauty of the natural world.
Some of the artists, architects, designers and artisans who worked in the Art Nouveau style include Aubrey Beardsley, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Renee Lalique, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Antoni Gaudi, Samuel Yellin and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Art Nouveau as a period spanned the 1880s to 1914 and is closely aligned with the Arts & Crafts Movement, with many artists working across the two styles. The term Art Nouveau (New Art) was first used when describing the work of a group of Belgian artists (Les Art Nouveau).
If you enjoy Art Nouveau and the Arts & Crafts Movement, or work in these styles, you’re very welcome to join this group.
This group exists to showcase your works in the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts styles and to increase our understanding and knowledge of Art Nouveau and the associated Arts & Crafts Movement. By limiting uploads to a maximum of 2 works per day your work will be much more evenly distributed throughout the gallery and more likely to be appreciated by your viewers.
