Ecole de Nancy ::

1999, the year of the École de Nancy

1999 was the year of the Ecole de Nancy.

The Year of the Ecole de Nancy logo

Organized on the initiative of the Nancy City Council, this highly cultural year gave everyone the opportunity to rediscover the fantastic artistic movement that made Nancy Art Nouveau famous around the world at the end of the 19th century.

It was an opportunity for the city and the region to pay homage to the artists and art manufacturers whose aim was to make beautiful articles available to all. By revalorising this outstanding heritage and ensuring that it will be better protected in the future, this celebratory Year also encouraged us today to reassess our particular approach and state of mind associating creation, research, training and the spirit of enterprise.

An ambitious program of cultural events was planned: many exhibitions on the Ecole de Nancy and the 1900 period, publications, seminars, series of conferences, circuits of Art nouveau visits and walks, meetings with art trade professionals, flea markets, concerts, shows, public dances and other celebrations...
