Art Nouveau style was a popular art and design movement that originated in the late 1800s and lasted till the early 1900s. The movement was characterized by an identifiable visual quality, which is a natural, plant-like line. This distinctive line was a signature characteristic of Art Nouveau style, which was prevalent in architecture, decorative arts, and graphic design. The natural line was often transformed by using vine tendrils, flowers like roses and lily, bird forms like peacocks, and female forms of the human body. Some of the key identifying visual characteristics of Art Nouveau style are:
Curvilinear lines that imitate the forms found in nature
Incorporation of natural motifs like floral and fauna in the design
Asymmetrical designs that emphasize the organic flow of the line
Usage of rich and vibrant colors such as gold, silver, and bronze
The use of new materials such as iron and glass
Art Nouveau style represented a significant shift from the traditional design and art forms of that time, and its influence can still be felt in various modern art and design movements today.
