The fabulous exploits of the School of Nancy
In the late 19th century, Nancy became one of the European capitals of Art Nouveau, influenced by the School of Nancy.

Originally influenced by neo-Gothic and Japanese styles (don't be surprised by the number of Japanese tourists in the streets of Nancy...) in reaction against the Classical style predominant at the time, Art Nouveau breathed new life into the decorative arts and architecture, drawing inspiration from nature and flora.

In the late 19th century, the famous glassmaker and ceramicist Émile Gallé (1846-1904) brought a whole galaxy of artists together in the famous School of Nancy. The Daum brothers, Louis Majorelle, Eugène Vallin, Victor Prouvé and Jacques Gruber were all part of this fabulous group.
