LIST OF MEMBERS
1st district 7
The Committee of the Association Abstraction-Creation
presents to the readers of their publication the accompanying
list, which indicates the interest taken to day in Abstract Art.
It gives in main statistics, from the different districts of Paris
and of the other countries, the number of people interested
in this movement and inscribed on our register. Cubists, futu
rists surealists or other tendencies are not indicated.
Examination of this list permits us to realise the intellec-
tuel movement. Attention is drawn to the varied degree of
interest shown in Abstract Art in the 14th district (Paris)
compared with +he llth and the 19th, and also with the
14th and 15th compared with the 18th district.
These statistics speak for themselves.
Great Britain II
It is similar for the other countries. We know that the abs
tract movement had its great developement as far as archi-
techture was concerned, in Holland, that Germany after the
war of 1914, used this movement as a leitmotiv; example,
their Bauhaus etc. In England this conception was complete!/
ignored. As to America, there was only the great architect
Frank-Lloyd Wright. Our list represents the manometer. Switz
erland, a country always eager for novelty, is at the head of
the list with 68. Holland, witnessed the departure of several
of her artists to foreign countries, registers 12. Germany
only I I. Italy 7. These figures are naturally only the conclu
sions drawn from our register, which means that only those
in sumpathy with Abstract Art, known to our organisation,
are under consideration. We are sure that the number of
people who are interested in Abstrat Art is far greater, be
cause they are by no means all counted in our files, every
day new-comers make themselves known to us and join
our organisation, so as to be able to participate in a more
active way in the abstrat movement in art.
It is also curious to see how, in America, the number of
those interested in the movement has increased, and pro
gress is also noted in England.
Thus, we can consider that 17 countries, outside France,
are interested in Abstrat Art and that Paris is the centre of
All things change Italy knew the greatness of the Renais
sance, Montmartre the glory of the Fauves; now Paris is
bound up in the present movement. We sincerely hope she
will keep this position and prerogative.
