The Jugendstil movement is the name of an artistic Renaissance that appeared in the late 19th century in southern Germany. ( About 1890-1910) This emerging art was artistically elegant and stylistically revolutionary. The Jugendstil artists and designers were concentrated around Munich, and while their work stylistically appeared similar to that of the French Art Nouveau of the fin de siècle era, in essence their art was authentic both in terms of it aesthetics and also its Teutonic themes and mythology.
