Horta Motifs. Fabric and wallpaper in Brussels houses
Art Nouveau was a very significant period for the creation of wallpaper and fabrics. Inside Art Nouveau buildings, both Victor Horta and his contemporaries gave meaning to the concept of total art and revolutionised the applied arts, abolishing the hierarchy between different forms of plastic art. Original motifs, complex craftwork... the exhibition restores this fragile heritage to the place it deserves in the history of forms.
