About this item

The Art Nouveau movement arose in response to the stifling, heavy weight of Victorian art and conformity, but it quickly proved to be beautiful and innovative enough to move beyond its origins and make a lasting mark for itself. Its creative use of sinuous natural forms and patterns remains highly influential and powerful today, more than a century later.
?This book offers a detailed look at the city that could rightly claim to have been the capital of Art Nouveau–Brussels. The first comprehensive guide to the Art Nouveau experience in Brussels, it presents close looks at key buildings in eleven different parts of the city, buildings designed and decorated by some of the greatest names in the movement, including Victor Horta, Paul Hankar, and Henry Van de Velde. Descriptive accounts of each building are matched with biographical information about their creators, while more than one hundred and fifty newly commissioned color photographs highlight key features and a dozen new maps help visitors plan their trips. The resulting book is an unprecedented guide to a city that even today remains deeply marked by Art Nouveau, a living remnant of a powerful artistic flourishing.
