Historical stylistic period formed from the end of the 19th century (c. 1890) after the Umbertino style and continued until the First World War. The current was characterized by the floral influence and the soft and curved lines, a typical example are the "whiplashes". The first signs of this new era came from architects such as Hector Guimard (1867-1942) who built numerous buildings and hotels, in addition to the famous Parisian subway shelters in full Art-Nouveau style but also by people like Arthur Mackmurdo furniture design and Arthur Industrial Liberty and London merchant of the late 19th century who began to produce upholstery fabrics with floral motifs with soft and sinuous shapes. The universal exhibition in Paris in 1900 in which new objects with soft, gentle and floral lines were presented was an important point for the development and affirmation of Liberty in the following decade. Liberty was called in different ways according to the nation, universally known as Art-Nouveau but also as Jugendstil in Germany, Secessionist in Austria, Art and Craft in America and Great Britain, Modernism in Spain and it is thought that Arthur Liberty derives the name given in Italy to this beautiful stylistic current. The name Art-Nouveau, on the other hand, is thought to derive from a shop located in Paris called Maison de l'Art Nouveau which began to show off furniture items with a new and innovative design in its windows. With the end of the First World War, the naturalistic period of Liberty ended and the Art-Decò style emerged, with more rigid and geometric lines.
