Victor Horta

  Born January 6, 1861 in Ghent and died September 8, 1947 in Brussels.

A precursor of Art Nouveau in Belgium, known and admired today throughout the world, Victor Horta left his mark on the city of Brussels with his particular style, where he achieved wonders, which have now become exceptional places to visit. During his career, Horta has been able to reinvent himself, moving with equal talent from the curves of Art Nouveau to the straight lines of Art Deco, while keeping his personal style.

In 1932 he was ennobled by King Albert 1st, who conferred on him the title of baron.
