1880s art nouveau
Art Noveau began in the 1880s as a reaction against the historical emphasis of mid-19th-century art, but did not survive World War I. Art nouveau originated in London, and, in general, was most successfully practiced in the decorative arts: furniture, jewelry, and book design and illustration. The style was richly ornamental and asymmetrical, characterized by a whiplash linearity reminiscent of twining plant tendrils. Its exponents chose themes fraught with symbolism, frequently of an erotic nature. They imbued their designs with dreamlike and exotic forms.

1920s art deco
The term ‘Art Deco’ has been used to describe design and architecture from the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s that was characterized by bright colours, geometric shapes, and decorative motifs deriving from a wide range of visual sources from the early years of the 20th century. During the years when Art Deco as a style was in fashion the term Art Deco was not known. Modernistic or Style Moderne was used. The term was coined in the 60’s by Bevis Hillier, a British art critic and historian. The term was an abbreviation of the French words ‘art’ and ‘décoratif’, themselves derived from the Paris Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels of 1925

1940s organic abstraction
1950s existential art
1950s neo dada
1952 pop art
Art that is considered an inferior, tasteless copy of an extant style of art. The term kitsch was a response to the 19th century art whose aesthetics convey exaggerated sentimentality and melodrama, hence, kitsch art is closely associated with sentimental art. Moreover, kitsch also denotes the types of art that are like-wise æsthetically deficient making it a creative gesture that merely imitates the superficial appearances of art (via repeated conventions and formulae), thus, it is uncreative and unoriginal; it is not Art. Contemporaneously, kitsch also (loosely) denotes art that is æsthetically pretentious to the degree of being in poor taste, and to industrially-produced art-items that are considered trite and crass. The zany, playful, extreme accessories and decorations of the 1950s were very much kitsch or “1950s pop.” To call them whimsical is an understatement.

Movement in architecture, design and the arts that rejected the preoccupation of post-war modernism with purity of form and technique.
