Nowadays, it is considered a movement based on the cultural reivindication of a Catalan identity. Its main form of expression was in architecture, but many other arts were involved painting, sculpture, etc. Modernisme was also a literary movement poetry, fiction, drama. Although Modernisme was part of a general trend that emerged in Europe around the turn of the 20th centuryin Catalonia the trend acquired its own unique personality.
Modernisme's distinct name comes from its special relationship, primarily with Catalonia and Barcelonawhich were intensifying their local characteristics for socio-ideological reasons after the Le Moderniste - A Part Of Me of Catalan culture and in the context of spectacular urban and industrial development. Modernisme was active from roughly the First Barcelona World Fair to the death of Joan Maragallthe most important Modernista poet.
Modernistes largely rejected bourgeois values, which they thought to be the opposite of art. Consequently, they adopted two stances: they either set themselves apart from society in a bohemian or culturalist attitude Decadent and Parnassian poets, Symbolist playwrights, etc.
It is a search for a particular style for Catalonia drawing on Medieval and Arab styles. As well as combining a rich variety of historically-derived elements, it is characterized by the predominance of the curve over the straight line, by rich decoration and detail, by the frequent use of vegetal and other organic motifs, the taste for asymmetry, a refined aestheticism and dynamic shapes.
In literature, Modernisme stood out the most in narrative. Those writers often, though not always, show influences from Russian literature of the 19th Century and also Gothic novels.

In poetry, Modernisme closely follows Symbolist and Parnassian poetry, with poets frequently crossing the line between both tendencies or alternating between them.
Another important strain of Modernista poetry is Joan Maragall 's "Paraula viva" Living word school, which advocated Nietzschean vitalism and spontaneous and imperfect writing over cold and thought-over poetry. Although poetry was very popular with the Modernistes and there were lots of poets involved in the movement, Maragall is the only Modernista poet who is still widely read today.
Modernista theatre was also important, as it smashed the insubstantial regional plays that were popular in 19th century Catalonia. However, only with the later rise of Noucentisme did his projects come to fruition and end the orthographic chaos which reigned at the time. ByModernisme had been accepted by the bourgeoisie and had pretty much turned into a fad. It was around this time that Noucentista artists started to ridicule the rebel ideas of Le Moderniste - A Part Of Me and propelled a more bourgeois art Gianluca Petrella - Indigo 4 a more right-of-center version of Catalan Nationalism, which eventually rose to power with the victory of the Lliga Regionalista in Until Miguel Primo de Rivera 's dictatorship suppressed all substantial public use of Catalan, Noucentisme was immensely popular in Catalonia.
However, the ties between Catalan art from the s and Modernisme are not that clear, as said artists were not consciously attempting to continue any tradition.
Modernista architecture survived longer. The Spanish city of Melilla in Northern Africa experienced an economic Le Moderniste - A Part Of Me at the turn of the 20th century, and its new bourgeoisie showed its riches by massively ordering Modernista buildings.
The workshops established there by Catalan architect Enrique Nieto continued producing decorations in this style even when it was out of fashion in Barcelonawhich results in Melilla having, oddly enough, the second largest concentration of Modernista works after Barcelona.
