The two largest organizations in Europe the Art Nouveau European Route in Barcelona and the Réseau Art Nouveau Network (RANN) in Brussels that coordinate the activities of World Art Nouveau Day. In 2019 the event was supported by the European Heritage Alliance.
June 10th: World Art Nouveau Day
Flowing lines, asymmetrical patterns and many influences from nature: that is Art Nouveau! The art style, also known as Art Nouveau, caused a sensation in the fin de siècle at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. In the new art style, designers and artists have taken nature and handicrafts more into account.
World Art Nouveau Day is on June 10th. The day was launched in 2013 by the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest. Not without reason: Antoni Gaudí and Ödön Lechner, two well-known European Art Nouveau architects, died on June 10th.
Lots of enthusiasts
At the time Art Nouveau emerged, people were looking for an answer to increasing industrialization and increasing mass consumption. Back to nature and to the craft was one of the answers. These are developments that are now also playing a role in our lives: one of the reasons why the style continues to be extremely popular.
