The Legion of Art Nouveau HeroesS

What we need in this troubled world is heroes. Who look cool. And what looks cooler than Art Nouveau? The European art style popularized in the late 19th century is synonymous with beauty, grace and total mind-blowing radness.

Some amazing artists have reimagined our favorite heroes in the Art Nouveau style — both superheroes and other kinds. Are you ready for Art Nouveau Batman? Check out our amazing gallery of Art Nouveau champions!
