Exhibitions Brussels, History > Brussels City Museum
With this temporary exhibition, the Musée de la Ville de Bruxelles wishes to draw attention to the rich Art Nouveau heritage preserved in the city's collections. These collections are wide and diverse: from embroidery and painting to fashion and architecture. The starting point of the exhibition is the inspiration that artists found in nature at the turn of the century. The subtle aesthetics and powerful lines and shapes of flowers and plants attract attention, as does the sublime representation of women, in all their variations, presented by the artists. The exhibition presents a small but enchanting selection of works, most of which are previously unseen or rarely exhibited.
