Art Nouveau was popularized by the Maison de l'Art Nouveau, a Paris art gallery operated by Siegfried Bing.

In the United States, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Louis Sullivan, and Frank Lloyd Wright were influenced by this decorative style.

Distinctive Art Nouveau features are:

  • Asymmetry
  • Arches and curves
  • Curved glass and stained glass
  • Mosaics
  • Japanese motifs
  • Elaborate curved embellishments derived from nature
