Art Nouveau

Art Nouveau stylized shapes and curves, organic linesThe origins of Art Nouveau are found in the resistance of William Morris to the cluttered compositions and the revivaltendencies of the Victorian era and his theoretical approaches that helped initiate the Arts and crafts movement.
the term "whiplash" is frequently applied to the characteristic curves employed by Art Nouveau artists. Such decorative "whiplash" motifs, formed by dynamic, undulating, and flowing lines in a syncopated rhythm, are found throughout the architecture, painting, sculpture, and other forms of Art Nouveau design.
