ArtNouveau was a drive that sanctioned away through ornamental arts andconstruction in the late 19th Century and early 20th centuries. Thismovement has remarkably engendered enthusiasm among many artists allover Europe and outside. This is because, the campaign has deliveredin an extensive diversity of styles, and also, it is documented byvarious names such as Glasgow Style (Bertrand, 2012). Art Nouveau wasintended at renovating design, ensuring to avoid the old electricstyles that were beforehand documented and made prevalent. Accordingto Orman (2013), many Artists have drawn inspiration from bothorganic and geometric forms, increasing sophisticated designs thatcombine the flowing and natural forms with more angular contourspresent in Art Nouveau.

Onthe other hand, Art Nouveau was an international movement thatintegrated two of the most influential forces that are art and nature(Orman, 2013). The introduction and application of modern buildingmaterials, methods, and technologies expressed new complexity.

The revolutionary style was seen in painting, sculpture,architecture, ceramics, and furniture across the globe that made theArt Nouveau more significant and effect that extended far beyond anyprior attempt by traditional times of Lascaux and Pech Merle. Forinstance, the Art Nouveau staircase (1893-7) Emile Tassel House,Brussels. Designed by architect Victor Horta.

Inthis case, the work of Art Nouveau has influenced my work in thesense that Art and Nature are the two most dominant and permanentforces in the art industry. Besides nature, the innovativeness hasunderwritten vastly to the resourcefulness of Art Nouveau (Orman,2013). This concept is essential in a manner that it sought to breakaway from the old establishments of the art. Additional, contemporaryartist believes that art and life are tantamount, and therefore, theneed to integrate new extraordinary style in daily life is quitenoteworthy. Another important that has inspired many Artists to workis the concepts and techniques that include jugendstil (Youth Style),and Sezessionsstil (secession style) in the works of Art Nouveau(Bertrand, 2012). These concepts and techniques employ a sinuous andflowing lines.
