Browsing the internet for information, I just found this wonderful new feature: an online-exhibition! The “Wiki Loves Art Nouveau” exhibition features 50 photographs representing some of Europe’s best examples of Art Nouveau architecture. These photographs were submitted by people around Europe for the Wiki Loves Monuments photo contest, where Europeana sponsored a special Art Nouveau Category. With over 2,700 submissions, the Europeana team shortlisted 343 photographs. Users then voted for their favourites on Flickr, after which the 40 most popular photographs were assembled into this new exhibition. The photograph of the interior of the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest by Csaba Attila Kontar received the most votes and was crowned the winner of Wiki Loves Art Nouveau. Along with these top 40 images selected by users, the exhibition features 10 other photographs hand picked by the Europeana team.
