The Art Nuveau era is well past but we still love the photos and old buildings.
My guess is that some form of art nuveau will make a come back even in this booming era of modernism. I think we yearn for natural shapes and figures in our modern, often cold and sparse spaces. Yes, artwork on the walls, in the tiles, in the rugs, in the textiles, use of wood as a tone…these can all help soften the space and make it more livable, soft and natural. But I just think that with the resurgence in recent years of craftspeople working with wood, 3D printing and really the market place wanting more wood elements in interior spaces (like old barnwood!)…it all just make me think that we will again see some sort of art nuveau revival. I doubt that it will look like the original early 20th century art nuveau movement, but it will refer to it.
Meanwhile, we have old photographs to help us reconnect to this glorious art nuveau past like this poster from AllPosters.com. This is the entrance in the Victor Horta Museum, which is his old house in Brussels, which you can visit.
The Victor Horta Museum is a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s actually one of four townhouses in Brussels which comprise the full UNESCO site.
