Art nouveau is an art movement that originated from an international renewal movement at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and lasted for about twenty years. The name is derived from the German art magazine "Jugend". In France, this art direction was called Art nouveau, in the United Kingdom Modern Style, in Austria Jugendstil is also known as a secession style. Apart from painting, architecture, sculpture, crafts, ceramics, goldsmithing, glass art and furniture design also belonged to the Jugendstil. The Jugendstil was created as a counter-movement to the rapid industrialization in this time. Crafting should become important again, so there are also many items of daily use.

Gustav Klimt is one of the most important artists of the Jugendstil. He is a co-founder of the Viennese Secession, an artists' association of this time. Many of his paintings, including the world-famous masterpiece "The Kiss", are in the large collection of paintings in Vienna's Belvedere. Graphics were also included in the painting. By 1900, this created important poster art.

There are many architecturally extraordinary buildings from this period. The Viennese Otto Wagner built the stations of the old Viennese city railway. Also bridges, lamps, etc. were adapted. The church at the Steinhof is another special building by Otto Wagner. Josef Hoffmann was a co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätten, where one was particularly concerned about the design of beautiful everyday objects. Hoffmann furniture is also a favorite item today.
