  • Art Nouveau e binisor reprezentat in Ardeal, cine are timp si rabdare sa umble prin Tg. Mures, Oradea, Timisoara si altele, poate gasi adevarate bijuterii de Secession austriac, german sau ungar. Am si eu pe blogul meu cateva postari (la nivel de amator) despre acest subiect si mi-am programat in vara asta ceva sesiuni foto. Chiar ieri am gasit in Tg. Mures 2 cladiri Art Nouveau deosebite, case de raport dupa cum arata, binisor intretinute – dar n-am avut aparatul foto la mine.

  • Detaliile sunt extraordinare, de la ce cladiri sunt? Sunt fan de Art Nouveau si Art Deco, din pacate insa numarul cladirilor reprezentand aceste stiluri nu e prea mare – si acelea care sunt se degradeaza rapid…

    • Casele in stil Art Nouveau se degradeaza foarte rapid intra-adevar, mai ales in ultimii doua zeci de ani. Pentru a putea gasi asemenea “bijuterii” trebuie multa rabdare si mai ales formare profesionala de cea mai inalta calitate posibilia. Mie mi-a luat 20 de ani de de munca in Marea Britanie si vestul Europei si ani buni de universitate la Londra 🙂 Cheers, Valentin

      • Art Nouveau-ul din Ardeal e ‘another kettle of fish’ pentru Romania, apartine fenomenului ungar si austriac (inclusiv casele etnicilor romani). Sunt ceva lucrari in domeniu aparute la Viena sau Budapestadespre Art Nouveau-ul din Ardeal, foarte greu de gasit pe meleagurile mioritice.
