Secessionism (German: Sezessionismus; Hungarian: Szecesszió) is a term coined by Hans-Ulrich Simon to describe and summarise the movements in art and literature in late 19th and early 20th century Europe roughly equal to the rise of modernism. Published in German only, Simon's pioneering study received little international attention. Nevertheless, it remains a milestone into the investigation of 19th century history.

Since 1890, secessions from officially supported art spread, as Simon pointed out, from France all around Europe.
