Take a virtual tour of these absolutely stunning Art Nouveau buildings

Characterized by swooping embellishments, Art Nouveau is a decorative art style that took hold from 1890 till 1914. Some of the most beautiful buildings in Europe were made in this style (and its German cousin equivalent Jugendstil), and while you may not be able to take an actual tour of these sites any time soon, we’ve compiled this virtual tour for you thanks to Instagram.

Maison Huot (1903), Nancy, Lorraine, France. The movement Art Nouveau – School of Nancy (École de Nancy in French) created outstanding buildings throughout the city of Nancy: townhouses, shops and banks which display the clever reunion of architecture and decoration style inspired by plant-life and science. The movement was born when the Alsace and Moselle regions were annexed by the Prussians in 1871. Nancy, a French border town, was home to much of the intelligentsia who refused the annexation. These conditions in particular, as well as the presence of an established artistic community, industrialists and entrepreneurs, led to the establishment of the School of Nancy. The movement was weakened by the death of Emile Gallé in 1904 and most consider that World War One marked its end. Names such as Louis Majorelle, Jacques Gruber, Émile Gallé, Jacques Gruber, Victor Prouvé, Eugène Vallin and Alexandre Bigot acquired world-wide reputation and belong to the École de Nancy | Pic by @isartnouveau #MaisonHuot #architecte #ÉcoledeNancy #EmileAndre #Nancy #Francia #artnouveau #artnouveaudotclub #secession #jugendstil #liberty #modernisme #archilovers #architecturelovers #belleepoque #visitnancy #frontdoor #door #nostalgia #instadoor #frenchart #frencharchitecture #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #fotododia #instafrance #instanancy #igersfrance #follow

В глубине двора по-прежнему стояли два каменных строения для церковных служб. Во втором этаже одного из них была домовая церковь во имя Саввы Сторожевского. До 1914 года в здании Архиерейского дома располагалась редакция журнала Душеполезное чтение, а с 1917 года - квартира хорунжего Войска Донского А. А. Ханжонкова и контора его торгового дома с небольшим съёмочным ателье и про­екционным залом. #архитектура #architecture #artnouveau #москва #москваялюблютебя #moscowonline #msk_moscow #beautifuldestinations #igworldclub #ig_europe #ig_captures #instagramrussia #igmasters #top_masters #natgeoru #architectureporn #itsmymoscow #mskdaily #москва #onlinemoscow #instagramrussia #инстаграмнедели #passionpassport #phenomenalshot #фотодляроссии #kudagomsk #natgeoru #photorussia #insta_moskva #facade #igmoscow #loves_moscow
