Victor Horta House in Brussels, Belgium - Detail showing the art glass laylight and one of a pair of curvaceous mirrors at the top of the home's main stairwell. Victor Horta designed and built the house and studio for his own family from 1893-97. Now home of the Musee Horta.
Part of an exhibition of sumptuous Art Nouveau furntiure and interior design at the Musee d'Orsay. The spectacular Musee d'Orsay in Paris is the city's premier museum after the Louvre and opened in 1986 as an imaginative conversion of the former station building of the Gare Orsay. The building is a fine example of late 19th century architecture, thus the perfect home for a collection of 19th century art.
