Promoted by the Horta Museum Editions, the collector Jonathan Mangelinckx and the art historian Borys Delobbe (UCLouvain), the series “Belgian Art Nouveau: Vision, Design & Craft” intends to renew our understanding of the different looks that have crossed in Belgium in the struggle for a new aesthetic in applied arts at the turn of the 19th century. Besides Victor Horta as a pivotal point, the first volume offers an unprecedented look at the work of four other actors of the Belgian Art Nouveau: the metal craftsmen Fernand Dubois and Paul Du Bois, the decorator architect Georges Hobé and finally Leon Ledru, the emblematic figure of Cristalleries du Val Saint-Lambert.
