Eclecticisme 1830-1880:

From circa 1830 the neo-styles followed each other:

  • Neo Gothic with artists like Froment-Meurice (image to be inserted)
  • Neo Renaissance (image to be inserted)
  • Neo Etruscan with artists like Castellani en Guiliano (image to be inserted)
  • Neo Moor: inspired by the Algerian war in 1840, which reached its zenith at the end of the war in 1860 (image to be inserted)
  • Neo Assyrian: caused by the publication of Sir Henry Layards 'Nineveh and its remains' and the World Exhibition in London in 1851 where the fruits of many national industries were on show. (image to be inserted)
  • Neo Egyptian: associated with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 (image to be inserted)
  • There was another revival of the neo-Egyptian in 1922 that coincides with the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamon. This revival was actually defined more in the Art-Deco style, but more about that later. (image to be inserted)
  • Neo Indian: inspired by the Crowning of Queen Victoria to Empress of India. (image to be inserted)

In a word the 19th century was not very exiting from a design point of view. Towards the end of the century this became worse and even less defined with a variety styles mixed up all together. This was called Eclectisism and for a long time was belittled. Lately however some people have started considering these as collectors items.
