Art Nouveau is an international style of art, architecture, and applied art, especially the decorative arts. Art Nouveau is known in different languages by different names, such as, Jugendstil in German and Stile Liberty in Italian.
In English it is also known as the Modern Style (British Art Nouveau style). The style was most popular between 1890 and 1910 and was a reaction against the academic art, eclecticism and historicism of 19th century architecture and decoration. It was often inspired by natural forms such as the sinuous curves of plants and flowers.
