Whether these lines were used in realistic depictions  of natural forms or as abstracted shapes evoking an organic vitality, the emphasis was on decorative pattern and also flattened, a surface on which this concern for the linear, the line of Art Nouveau."

Why

AMBIVALENCE?

n. the simultaneous existence of two conflicting desires, opinions, etc.

⁠—ambivalent

The Art Nouveau movement centered towards returning to the essence of craftsmanship and illustrating women in an ethereal fashion.
