Late 19th Century to Early 20th Century
Art Nouveau is an elegant decorative art style characterized
by flowing lines and natural organic forms, often intricately detailed.
Somewhat rooted in the British
Arts and Crafts Movement
of William Morris, Art Nouveau became popular across Europe and in the
United States. Leading practitioners included
and the American glassmaker Louis Comfort Tiffany. Art Nouveau remained
popular until about the time of World War I, and was ultimately replaced
by the Art Deco style.
