Art Nouveau (also: Art Nouveau or Modern Style) refers to the style characterized by Neo-Impressionism, Japanese woodblock prints, and borrowings from nature and geometry, which began around 1890 and was replaced by the triumphal advance of Art Deco in the 20s of the previous century. At the same time, the Arts & Crafts movement developed in England, which was popular in the Anglo-American region, but received little attention on the continent. Today, both styles are sought after by collectors all over the world. The design focused on formal elements inspired by plant and figurative models. The dynamically curved, tendril-like line is therefore considered a fundamental element of Art Nouveau.
