This is a great documentary about history of Art Nouveau. Before watching this movie, I was very much familiar with the art of Mucha and Klimt, which were ones of the most famous representatives of this prominent artistic movement. But for me, the Art Nouveau has been always more of a decorative expression style. If you look around yourself with an “Art Nouveau eye”, you may be able to notice ornaments and shapes inspired by it, thus I believe it is still alive!
The inspiration of a life style is the focus of what we are talking about in this blog. The more you look the more you see people living in a art style custom. This what ART NOUVEAU is.

Art Nouveau is considered a “total” art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils and lighting, as well as the fine arts. According to the philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. For many well-off Europeans, it was possible to live in an art nouveau-inspired house with art nouveau furniture, silverware, fabrics, ceramics including tableware, jewellery, cigarette cases, etc. Artists desired to combine the fine arts and applied arts, even for utilitarian objects.
We feel this is just a cool beginning to things yet to be discovered on this topic…
