The "Art Nouveau" ("new art") movement was one of the first departures from classical art and design, towards a new modernism. This avant-garde movement occurred during what was known in France as the "La Belle Époque" period, or "beautiful era" of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In Germany, the Art Nouveau movement was known as the "Jugendstil," or "youth style" arts and crafts movement, named after "Jugend," a cultural weekly magazine founded by Georg Hirth in 1896.
