About Something Nouveau

Over five hundred images of Art Nouveau masterpieces will give you the unique opportunity to have a closer look at the turn of the 20th century style.

Immerse yourself in the works of artists Klimt, Mucha, and Beardsley; three Art Nouveau masters who brought the movement to life. Art Nouveau aimed to establish a new modern aesthetic by featuring organic and nature-inspired subjects in art, architecture and applied arts such as interior design, textiles, ceramics, and decoration. The style is credited for breaking down the distinction between fine and applied art.

**Please note: Something Nouveau Immersive Exhibit includes art that may contain nudity.**
