Neobarock becomes the second half 19. Century assigned, and was particularly common after 1880 furthest. It is considered as manifestation of the historicism, which replaced the classicism. Neobarock was used particularly gladly for theatre buildings, since the baroque had brought a high bloom of all theatrical art kinds with itself. In the late phase of historicism general orientation on the Renaissance stepped into the background and Neobarock for various tasks of building was used.
In Austria its use was “patriotically” konnotiert, there one alleged to the culture bloom and political expansion early 18. Century tied. In its late phase co-existed it with art nouveau, which it partly affected.
Some examples of the buildings are:
- those Paris Grand Opéra from the years 1854-1874
- the Semperoper in Dresden from the years 1871-1878
- the lock Herrenchiemsee from the years 1878-1886
- the new yard castle in Vienna from the years of 1881-1914
- city theatres Fürth (1901/1902)
- the festival hall in Frankfurt/Main from the year 1907
