Art Nouveau records digitised in EC-funded project

Share this on social media:

More than 22,000 digital images and records of Art Nouveau objects, artworks, posters and buildings have been made publically available through the Europeana website. This is thanks to the work of the Partage Plus project, which is coordinated by Collections Trust.

Works by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, René Lalique, Gustav Klimt and other notable Art Nouveau figures can now be viewed online – in many cases for the first time.

Partage Plus is a Europeana project, funded by the European Commission. Digitisation began in March 2012 and the 22,000 objects so far announced are just the start. The project aims to digitise around 75,000 items to enable access to information and digital content on the European cultural heritage of the Art Nouveau period.

Katie Smith, projects and programmes manager at Collections Trust commented: ‘This is an exciting achievement, not only for the partners involved in the project, but also for Art Nouveau enthusiasts around the world. Everyone can now view beautiful images, records and even 3D models of important artworks online through the Europeana website’.
