Abstract :
Examines the relationship between Polish modernists and the Vienna Secession whose inclusive membership policy reflected the government's understanding of Austria as a multi-ethnic empire. Its egalitarian theories were reflected in its official publication Der Sacrum, and in its exhibitions. Its pluralistic ideal was nevertheless hierarchical, tolerating national difference in relation to an overarching definition of Austrian national identity. Polish critics, however, appreciated the inclusion of different nationalities as part of the inherent internationalism of modernism and redefined Polish art's national significance in terms of artistic quality, rather than by subject matter or style. After the founding of the organization Sztuka (Art), in 1898, Polish Secession members increasingly asserted their art's unique identity and independence, simultaneously international and national in character, which ultimately undermined their relationship with the Secession. ;
