Many of the art movements, including those you mentioned, have counterparts in type. You can do searches at foundries or at MyFonts use art movement names and end up with examples of type relating to the movement you searched.

Here is a search for art nouveau at MyFonts:

Type has plenty of movements, usually after a high fiber diet and LOTS of water.
