Art Nouveau

Artists of the Art Nouveau movement drew inspiration from both organic and geometric forms, evolving elegant designs that united flowing, natural forms with more angular contours.

One of the most celebrated of the Art Nouveau painters was Alfonse Mucha who produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements, and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets in what was termed initially The Mucha Style but became known as Art Nouveau (French for "new art"). Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used pale pastel colours
