Art Nouveau is French for "new art" and it is also known as Jugendstil.
It was most popular from 1890-1910 in Europe but its influence was world wide.
The style was strongly influenced by Czech artist Alphonse Mucha.
Art Nouveau is an international philosopy and style of art, architecture, and decorative arts.
