Art Nouveau literally means “new art.” This distinctive style emerged in the late nineteenth century and continued growing in popularity until the First World War. The style took its inspiration from the natural world, particularly the sinuous lines and curves taken from the botanical studies and illustrations of deep sea organisms that were popular at the time. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, “The unfolding of Art Nouveau’s flowing line may be understood as a metaphor for the freedom and release sought by its practitioners and admirers from the weight of artistic tradition and critical expectations.”

Art Nouveau stained glass is also known for its expressive, sometimes elaborate flowing lines. Although it was a definite break from tradition at the height of its popularity, today the Art Nouveau style is considered a traditional art form. As such, it looks phenomenal in a wide array of architectural styles and different decors.
