Welcome to Artnouveau

Hi and welcome to artnouveau, a group for anyone who enjoys Art Nouveau.

Joining the group
Anyone can join the group. Just press the button marked Join our Group at the top of the page and you are instantly a member. Welcome to the group!

You can submit your own or other's Art Nouveau works to the Digital, Traditional, Artisan Crafts, Photography and Stock folders. If you want to submit something that you don’t feel can fit in these categories please send a note to the group.

As a member you can submit or suggest 2 artworks to each folder per day. Please only submit finished works.

You can suggest another deviants’ art to be added to the group’s favourites. You can suggest all the favourites that you want to. The only requirements are that the work is somehow related to or inspired by Art Nouveau and that it is something you want to share with the other members of the group.

Deviation of the Week
The idea behind the Art Nouveau Deviation of the Week is to put a spotlight on a different Art Nouveau deviation each week and give the featured deviation (and the artist who made it) lots of love in the shape of comments, constructive critiques, faves, llamas and anything else you can think of. I hope you will all help to achieve this. :heart:

To suggest a deviation to be featured, please send a note titled Deviation Suggestion to the group with the thumb of a deviation that you think deserves some love. You can suggest any deviation from the group, no matter how old or new.

If you have any questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to send a note to me or the group and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Alphonse Mucha

1894, colour lithography

Gismonda poster by Alphonse Mucha

216x74.2 cm (85.04x29.21 inches)

Poster by Alphonse Mucha advertising Sarah Bernhardt's performance of the play Gismonda. Created in two weeks during Christmas of 1994 and published and hung all over Paris on Januray 1st 1995, this was the poster that kick-started Mucha's career by introducing him to the general public and earning him a five year contract working for the illustrious Sarah Bernhardt.

With its tall, narrow format, soft pastel colours, and rich decorative detail Mucha's poster distinguished itself from previous posters of the time and it quickly became a sought after collecter's item, with some people going as far as stealing the posters from where they hung. With this poster Mucha's particular and well-loved style of Art Nouveau was born; Le Style Mucha.
