Art Nouveau

1895–1915

The closely related movements Art Nouveau (France), Jugendstil (Germany) and The Arts and Crafts Movement (England) were against Historicism and its emulations. They sought to unite architecture with the decorative arts, and placed emphasis on skilled, traditional craftsmanship, authenticity of materials, and forms and decoration inspired by nature.

The windows of these styles often contained glass in multiple colours and featured motifs from nature.
