Art Nouveau is an elegant decorative style that revolutionized visual art and architecture across Europe and the United States at the end of the 19th
Century and into the 20th
. Art Nouveau designers believed that all the arts should work in harmony to create a "total work of art,"—
paintings, graphic art, buildings, interior design, furniture, textiles, clothing, ceramics, glass art, metal work, and jewelry— all inspired by graceful, natural forms.
