Art History

Art Nouveau designs are characterized by organic whiplash curves, tentacle-like tendrils and flowers, and sinuous human and animal forms. In part a reaction to the mechanization of the Industrial Revolution, the New Art movement originated in France and Belgium in the 1880s and reached a high point at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
