Art Nouveau


The French 'Art Nouveau style', the German 'Jugendstil' and the English 'Arts and Crafts Movement' are closely related.

Architects of the period turned against the standardisation and streamlining of buildings and building materials and instead drew inspiration from the soft, organic forms of nature as well as tradition building techniques.

Art Nouveau windows often have organic shapes and stained glass with decorative motifs inspired by nature.
