Jugendstil an artistic style

The weekly magazine Jugend no 14/1896

Jugendstil, an artistic style that originated around the mid-1890s in Germany and persisted throughout the first decade of the 20th century, derived its name from the Munich magazine Die Jugend (‘Youth’), which featured designs from the Art Nouveau period. In Jugendstil, two phases can be discerned: an early one, before 1900, which is mainly floral, rooted in the applied arts and prints of the English Art Nouveau and Japanese; and a later, more abstract one, originating from the Viennese work of the Belgian-born architect and artist Henry van de Velde.
