The Art of Living in Brussels

Добавить в корзину
An exclusive private itinerary leads the reader to the discovery of the refined style that characterizes the places where life is lived in Brussels today. The Art of Living in Brussels reveals different facets of Belgium's capital and highlights the surprising mixture of classicism and contemporary style, of magnificence and minimalism that distinguish this cosmopolitan European city awarded UNESCO world heritage status owing to the stately architecture of Grande Place, heart of the metropolis. The city is renowned for its blend of gothic art, art nouveau and art deco, as well as for its medieval architecture, in a miscellany of different aesthetics where the splendid sixteenth and seventeenth century Flemish and Walloon mansions complement the delicate, almost mystic art nouveau style, whose extraordinary forerunner, Victor Horta, is a native son of Brussels. Shown for the first time ever, these exclusive places are captured in lovely pictures by photographer Jean Pierre Gabriel, who interprets them in a way that reflects their refined taste. Designers and artists featured include: Axel Vervoordt, Michael Borremans, Jan Fabre, Christine Bekaert, Anatoly Stolnikoff, Christophe Decarpentrie, Edouard Vermeulen, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Adrien Blomme, Marc Corbiau and Bataille & Ibens.
