    • Time constraint
    • Sizes of painting smaller
    • Quicker painting
    • Paints readily available in tubes
    • New colors
    • landscape paintings
    • interior scenes with virtues and tranquillity
    • less virtuosism
    • less historical themes
    • less details
    • clients are the new rich industrial people and not the aristocracy
    • Influence and use of photography
    • prints and reproductions of originals now available to the masses

An influence, on the crafts was even clearer. Art Nouveau originated as a reaction to the industrial revolution. Names like Lalique, Gallé, Lalique, Morris, Mucha, Klimt were all inspired by a new way of making objects: nature inspired and highly decorative, something missing greatly in the arts and crafts up to the mid 1850s..
