The magazine Jugend (1896-1940) was the namesake of the German Art Nouveau movement and played a key role in the art debates in Germany in the early 20th century.
In addition, the magazine also made an important contribution to the introduction of Impressionism in Germany.
Many well-known artists have contributed to Jugend, including Bruno Paul, Thöny, Thomas Theodor Heine, Hans Thoma, Franz von Stuck and Heinrich Zille.
The journal also covered satirical and critical topics in culture, such as the increasing influence of the churches, (especially Catholicism) and the political right in the Centre Party.
From the First World War, Jugend was becoming a national German and Bavarian magazine. That changed until the mid-1920s, when the issues began catering to the artists of the younger generation. After 1933, the magazine changed to fit in with the trend of National Socialism. In 1940 Jugend was discontinued.
