Art Nouveau: (1880 - 1910) Centered in Western Europe, this decorative arts movement began as an opposition to the historical  emphasis in mid-19th century art. The movement was established as the first new decorative style of the  20th century at the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris. Meaning New Art, Art Nouveau’s decorative style and  dedication to natural forms was internationally popular from 1880 to 1910. The movement had basis in  Romanticism, Symbolism, and the British Arts and Crafts movement, notably the work of William Morris.  With its origin in London, the movement spread throughout Europe and the United States and came to be  called Jugendstil in Germany, Sezessionstil in Austria, and Modernismo in Spain. Art Nouveau had  unique identities in each country, which sometimes created opposition between the varying nations and  artists.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
