Ecole de Nancy ::

Overview

On the approach of the 20th century and under the decisive impulse of several artists, architects, and collaborators, the Art Nouveau style developed and reached an exceptional and international popularity. This artistic movement touches all creative and technical domains.

In Nancy, the Art Nouveau style takes the name of the Ecole de Nancy, also known as the "Alliance Provinciale des Industries d’Art", thanks notably to the emblematic figure of Emile Gallé.  Glass, furniture, stained glass, ceramic, leather, iron, architecture and other artistic mediums take part in this vast movement to renovate the decorative arts that still mark the city of Nancy to this day.
