Art Nouveau was an international style of art, architecture and applied art, especially of the decorative arts, that was widespread in Europe and the US between about 1890 and 1910. It was inspired by natural forms and structures, particularly those of lines of plants and flowers. This Art Nouveau garden design is based on the wonderful artisan glasses I saw at the Denmark Design Museum.
