From March 2023 to January 2024, the Autrique House presents the work and life of Privat Livemont, an emblematic Art Nouveau artist from Brussels. Working as a versatile artist, a craftsman, and a teacher at the Industrial Academy in Schaerbeek, Livemont seems to have been a tireless worker. He is best known for his posters and the sgraffiti on many facades in Brussels.
The delicacy of his line, his taste for decorative plant elements and their stylisation, his fertile imagination and his colourful palette make Privat Livemont an important figure that Maison Autrique has chosen to honour in 2023, the year of Art Nouveau.
