An informational catalog, or several catalogs, about Art Nouveau.

< Civil society/Catalogs

One of the interesting features of the movement known as Art Nouveau is that it occurred at time of great interest in 'socialism' (in its broadest 19th century sense as a contrast term to 'individualism'). As a result, alongside the creation of individual artists and traditional ataliers (artists workshops) in Art Nouveau, there was a substantial formation of other civil society organizations - specialized production units, movements, groups, clubs, networks, alliances and many other types of organized activity quite unlike anything else in art history. Here is a partial list of some of those organizations, garnered from a variety of publications on art history. (A similar list has been prepared for the Arts and Crafts movement which saw a similar -- and to some degree overlapping -- burst of organization during roughly the same time period.

This catalog will include the city/location, founder, mission, foundation and terminal dates, and citations for each organization.
