Victor Horta is another main artist in the Art Nouveau movement. Horta's use of organic forms and strong use of contour and seemingly delicate structures inspired me to become a sculptor. His designs and buildings make me wonder why living spaces didn't continue to be built in the Art Nouveau fashion after Horta created his magnificent buildings.
This cast door bell is a perfect example to Horta's attraction to organic shape and the influence of foliage.
Can you imagine being lucky enough to have stayed in such a striking place?! There would be so much art built right into the very hotel to look at, I don't think I would have ever left the building my entire stay!
Victor Horta had such a sense of organic structure and brought the wonder and awe from the world of nature indoors with his architecture and design. He will always remain one of my most favorite artists!
