Art Nouveau (from French for “new art”), movement in Western art and design, which reached its peak during the 1890s. Hallmarks of the art nouveau style are flat, decorative patterns; intertwined organic forms such as stems or flowers; an emphasis on handcrafting as opposed to machine manufacturing; the use of new materials; and the rejection of earlier styles. In general, sinuous, curving lines also characterize art nouveau, although right-angled forms are also typical, especially as the style was practiced in Scotland and in Austria.

Art nouveau embraced all forms of art and design: architecture, furniture, glassware, graphic design, jewelry, painting, pottery, metalwork, and textiles. This was a sharp contrast to the traditional separation of art into the distinct categories of fine art (painting and sculpture) and applied arts (ceramics, furniture, and other practical objects).

The term art nouveau comes from an art gallery in Paris, France, called Maison de l'Art Nouveau (House of New Art), which was run by French dealer Siegfried Bing. In his gallery, Bing displayed not only paintings and sculpture but also ceramics, furniture, metalwork, and Japanese art. Sections of the gallery were devoted to model rooms that artists and architects designed in the art nouveau style.

Art nouveau flourished in a number of European countries, many of which developed their own names for the style. Art nouveau was known in France as style Guimard, after French designer Hector Guimard; in Italy as the stile floreale (floral style) or stile Liberty, after British art nouveau designer Arthur Lasenby Liberty; in Spain as modernisme; in Austria as Sezessionstil (secession style); and in Germany as Jugendstil (youth style). These diverse names reflect the widespread adoption of the movement, which had centers in major cities all over Europe—Paris and Nancy in France; Darmstadt and Munich in Germany; Brussels, Belgium; Glasgow, Scotland; Barcelona, Spain; Vienna, Austria; Prague, Czech Republic; and Budapest, Hungary.

Architecture and Art

At the moment the growth in the world to architect very fast and publishers, from the style of normal architecture -normally then to the style of so complex architecture. In the topic this time I tried to promote the topic "whether the architecture had his relations with art possibly some people believed that the architecture did not have his relations with art, but was also that Believed that the architecture was very tight his relations with art." In the royal time beforehand someone who it was considered could design a building was the person - the person who had added value in the world art.
but at the moment was far different, everyone could design a building provided that he could draw good that in a manual manner or by using available technological facilities.
So with few facts above could be attracted by the conclusion from two opinions on both of them same -equally true, but that too was based on few facts that were promoted by me.
To more deepened knowledge architect in this case, better him studied With direct in the environment around the fellow architecture possibly you will understand would the connection between"architecture and art"
