Sezession

Sezession. Term adopted by several groups of artists in Germany and Austria-Hungary in the 1890s, who seceded from the traditional, conservative academies to show their works. The first group was formed in Munich in 1892, but the most celebrated of the Sezessionen was founded in Vienna in 1897, and included the artist Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) and the architect Joseph Maria Olbrich (1867–1908): the latter designed the exhibition-gallery and premises for the Vienna Sezession which made his reputation. The Sezessionists' enthusiasm for Art Nouveau gave the name Sezessionstil to that style in Austria-Hungary.
