This screensaver shows you a collection of works from the movement named Art Nouveau.
Art Nouveau, an influential movement of design and applied art from the late 1800s through the mid 1920s. Its premise was that art should be expressed on everything from architecture to painting to furniture and household items, in order to make art accessible to peoples' everyday lives. It was characterized by motifs inspired by nature, as well as highly stylized flowing lines, curves, and
forms. The movement beautifully facilitated the transition from 19th to 20th century art. From
