A [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin new style of decorative art]] that predominated much of the ''[[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Fin de siècle]]'' (TheGayNineties and TheEdwardianEra), ArtNouveau's style consists of asymmetric and fluid movements, and naturalistic colors and themes. Its style was applied to every field, notably buildings, crafts, paintings, lithographic posters and furniture. The movement has influences from [[GreenThumb drawings of plant life]], works by Alphonse Mucha, Pre-Raphaelite paintings, Oriental flavours, Neoclassical, Romantic, Post-impressionist and Expressionist movements. The style spread throughout Europe, where [[IHaveManyNames its mode was dubbed in many languages, either termed as "new", "modern" or "young" art]].[[note]]In Germany and Northern Europe, it was called Jungendstil (youth style) or "secession"[[/note]] The style fell out of favour on or before UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, and its style influenced and helped evolve ArtDeco and other modernist movements.

This style predominates much of 1890s style SteamPunk. Note that art movments before 1890 range from Romantic to Impressionist.
