Themed-Wedding Inspiration: Art Noveau

What is Art Noveau?
"Art nouveau" which is French for "new art" first appeared in the Belgian journal L'Art Moderne in the 1880s. The term was used to describe the artworks of twenty painters and sculptors who were members of Les Vingt- an artistic community.

Particulary associated with the French style, the art form is inspired by elements of nature or the natural world such. The Art Noveau movement was short-lived, yet it has influenced modern art and is still regarded as a historical and treasured artistic style. *
