About Art Nouveau:
Art Nouveau came into being in 1893 when Victor Horta introduced iron and casting into the homes of the bourgeoisie in Brussels. These industrial materials enabled him to breathe space into home interiors, allowing air and light to circulate. Nature was one of the fundamental sources of Art Nouveau (or “new style”). Art Nouveau has two faces: that of a style appropriate to new ways of life (lighting, hygiene, transport) and that of a quest to embellish daily life (artists trained in the traditional fine arts devoting themselves to the applied arts). Art Nouveau spread quickly throughout Europe thanks to photo-illustrated art magazines as well as international exhibitions. The name differed according to the country, it was called “Modernisme” in Catalonia, “Jugendstil” in Germany, “Liberty” in Italy, or “Secession” in Vienna or Prague.
