Kitsch a form of art which is mostly used to present art that is considered sentimental or banal. It shows an inferior taste or not aesthetical type of art which is copy of an specific style. It can also be used to show a worthless imitation of art of recognized images or values like garden gnomes. The usage of them also remind me one of the scene in the movie Amelie.

The kitschy art was a response to 19th century art that denoted exaggerated sentimentality and melodrama. They were firstly originated in Munich for production of the mass market like finding poor quality images or stuffs in souvenir shops but then it was used to describe and art style which is considered as bad taste.

In the 1960s pop art began to increase potential of kitsch art and then pop culture and post modernism drew on it.
