Art Nouveau

The Art Nouveau period occurred primarily in Western Europe and the Americas between the 1880’s and 1910. Gaining popularity in Brussel’s Hôtel Tassel, the space demonstrated the period's personification of organic and figurative lines referencing themes in nature and biology. The asymmetrical whiplash curves found in many Art Nouveau works created a sense of movement that mimicked contemporary dance styles by dancers like Loïe Fuller. Considered the new art, Art Nouveau radically challenged academic art by referencing themes of Japonisme, Post-Impressionism, and craft.
