Description: Art Nouveau Artist Signed Bronze Sculpture Of A Maiden Frolicking In The Garden. Unreadable Signature. Art Nouveau (French For 'New Art') Is An International Style Of Art, Architecture, And Design That Peaked In Popularity At The Beginning Of The Twentieth Century And Is Characterized By Highly Stylized, Flowing, Curvilinear Designs Often Incorporating Floral And Other Plant-Inspired Motifs. Estimated more than 100 yrs old. Art Nouveau is a style of decorative art, architecture, and design prominent in western Europe and the US from about 1890 to 1910 and characterized by intricate linear designs and flowing curves based on natural forms. Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewelry, furniture, textiles, glass, household silver and other utensils, and lighting, as well as the fine arts. According to the philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. For many well-off Europeans, it was possible to live in an art nouveau-inspired house with art nouveau furniture, silverware, fabrics, ceramics including tableware, jewelry, cigarette cases, etc. Artists desired to combine the fine arts and applied arts, even for utilitarian objects.
