This newly researched celebration and record illustrates the finest examples of Brussels, which can claim to be the Art Nouveau capital of Europe. This is the first comprehensive guide to individual Art Nouveau buildings in eleven main areas of the city. It is planned and organised for those wishing to devise their own tours and visits using the specially drawn maps and index of architects and designers. Perhaps more of movement or design pgilosophy than a style, Art Nouveau flourished between the years 1893 - 1914, inspired forms and patterns found in nature, such as flowers and plants, clouds waves and even wips of smmoke. The influences of early practitioners who were rebelling against heavy Victorian conformity spread from architecture to interior design, furniture, lighting, textiles and fittings, as well as fine art, including graphics, calligraphy, carved lettering and ceramics. The book describes the work of the most famous designers and architects, such as Victor horta, Paul Hankar and Henry van de Velde, as well as their lesser-known diciples, collegues and successors. Each is given a short biography placed as a side note to the illustrated text. 230 colour photographs.
