Maison Huot

92-92 bis, quai Claude le Lorrain, Nancy in 1903 by ANDRE

It is a good example of the influance on Art Nouveau of both the gothic revival and floral decoration. Here there is a strong influance of flamboyant gothic which already used some floral designs.

Here are two details of this house: a marvellous example of Art Nouveau doors and one chimney. The door is topped by pine cone decorations which are a recurrent design in Nancy AN works. The chimneys are decorated with flowers which leaf shape reminds flames as well as sunflowers.
