The pioneers of Art Nouveau

The pioneers of Art Nouveau

In 1898, Victor Horta built his own home in Saint Gilles. It is a perfect example of his talent. The revolution ushered in by Horta's style is characterised by the use of open plan spaces, an approach that provides for optimal distribution and manipulation of light, and a decoration that uses the undulating energy of curved lines to perfection and flows effortlessly into the structure of the building. He built a new type of urban building based around light, air and space. On this walk we will compare Horta with his contemporaries, Paul Hankar, Octave Van Rijsselberghe, Albert Roosenboom, and we will discover the various currents of Art Nouveau.
