Jugendstil

Sometime synonymous with the term Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, meaning “Youth Style” in German, got its name from the magazine Jugend that first promoted the style. In the early 20th century the term only applied to two-dimensional examples in the graphic arts, later expanding to incorporate a broader range of the arts from architecture to decorative arts. Drawing from traditional German printmaking, the style uses precise and hard edges, an element that was rather different from the naturalistic style of the time.
