Transcript of Art Nouveau

Art Nouveau Art Nouveau is a style of art and an international philosophy, applied art and architecture, that was most popular during 1890-1910 Time Period 1890-1910 Art Nouveau, translated from it's French origin means "New Art". What is Art Nouveau? Although it was called new art is was a movement refined of older art movements such as Romanticism, symbolism, ect.. this movement was a joint effort of highly- energized and brightly motivated artist these artist felt strongly about severing ties with the Classic art movements and equally strong in banishing thewall which had separated the fine arts from the applied arts. The Nouveau Artists Felt that it was their responsibility to show art in a traditional subject masses way and also equally in objects used in everyday living, regardless of how particular they may be. it is a fair statement to suggest that all artists hold true the belief that people's lives are enriched, enhanced and to some degree made better through art. The Style What did the common person wear? flourished in both The United States and in Europe. Art Nouveau was a movement with it's own idea. Art Nouveau is an elegant decorative art style characterized by intricate patterns of curving lines. Felix Bracquemond Eugene Grasset Emile Galle Louise Comfort Tiffany Antoni Gaudi Ferdinand Hodler Adolphe-Leon Willette Theophile Alexandre Steinien Edmond-Francois Aman-Jean Alphonse Mucha Victor Horta Aristide Maillol Gusyav klimt Henry Van De Velde Lucien Levy-Dhurmer Georges Lemmen Hector Guimard Georges De Feure Charles Rennie Mackintosh Johan Thorn Prikker Aubrey Beardsley Artists from the Art Nouveau Time Period Full "leg-o-Mutton" sleeves and flared, moderately full skirts, However, the hour-glass figure with its erect posture, stiffly bonded collar ban, and high shoulders suggested a more formidable image than slope-shouldered "decorative butterfly" of the 1820s and 1830s. After 1900, the silhouette shifted to the "s" curve of the new corset style, recommended by reformers as a healthier alternative to the hour-glass silhouette. Art Nouveau had its roots in the Arts and crafts movement in England, which revived handicrafts and rejected mass production techniques. The style of Art Nouveau was decorative style that was developed in France. Although the style was not as popular in America as it was in Europe, Tiffany Lamps are great examples of it's ornate, flowing lines. men wore frock up until 1890 when it was replaced with the morning coat. the morning coat curved at the waste thus displaying the lower portion of the waist coat sack coats also remained popular for the next two decades. these coats were either worn double or single-breasted. Another style that was popular for men was a daytime coat that was similar to the sack coat. it was the reefer coat which was square and had the front double breasted with large lapels. Art Nouveau borrowed motifs from sources as varied as Japanese prints, Gothic architecture,and the symbolic paintings of the English poet and artist William Blake to create a highly decorative style with strong elements of fantasy. Art Nouveau was in decline in 1910 and was succeeded by the sleekly Art Deco.
