Ernest Blerot

  Born in Ixelles (Brussels) on February 21, 1870 and died in the same municipality on January 19, 1957.

A graduate in architecture from the Saint-Luc school in Schaerbeek, a specialist in Floral Art Nouveau, he was responsible for more than 50 houses in Brussels, including an entire street in St-Gilles.

For each house he designed a different facade as well as the interior and exterior decoration elements in a very meticulous way, including ironwork, stained glass, sgraffito, mosaics, hardware and woodwork.

Once Art Nouveau went out of fashion, however, it could not adapt and ceased his activities, after having made fortune.

A book, from J. Arets Editions, is available only from the publisher.
