  2. 2. Art Nouveau- Introduction This movement began in Europe in the 19th-20th century. The main focus of this movement was to modernize design. The movement was committed to abolishing the traditional hierarchy of the arts, which viewed so- called liberal arts, such as painting and sculpture, as superior to craft-based decorative arts. Artists drew inspiration from both organic and geometric forms, evolving elegant designs that united flowing, natural forms with more angular contours.
  3. 3. Art Nouveau- key ideas • The practitioners of Art Nouveau sought to revive good workmanship, raise the status of craft, and produce genuinely modern design. • Art Nouveau artists sought to overturn the widespread belief that media such as painting and sculpture were superior to crafts such as furniture design and silver- smithing. • they evolved a belief that the function of an object should dictate its form.
  4. 4. Hector Guimard Hector Guimard was an architect, who is now the best-known representative of the French Art Nouveau style of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Guimard's critical reputation has risen since the 1960s, as many art historians have praised his architectural and decorative work, the best of it done during a relatively brief fifteen years of prolific creative activity. • 1885 Guimard begins studying at the École Nationale et Speciale des Beaux-Arts in Paris • 1891 Guimard becomes an Assistant professor in descriptive geometry, shadow, and perspective drawings • 1892 Professor the following year in of the girls' section
