The Genre

This style, associated with the early twentieth century, celebrates the artist’s individuality in contrast to the industrialized modern society. Painting, architecture, and decorative arts work together to create domestic environments of great beauty and originality. The style is characterized by the organic quality of its curved lines. Among the most famous artists of this movement are Alphons Mucha, Victor Horta, Émile Gallé, and Louis Majorelle.
