Description: Founded in the 1880s as a response to the art world’s elitist obsession with painted and sculptural arts, ‘New Art’ quickly found enthusiastic support. Art Nouveau combined a desire for the complete reflection of art through craft and design, with the flowing lines of nature and Japonisme. It remains hugely popular, with the ever-present work of Mucha, Klimt, Toulouse-Lautrec and Mackintosh.
