bibliotheques.jpg Research Center

The Research Center brings together a library dedicated to Art Nouveau on a worldwide scale, a precious reserve of old publications and various archive collections. The library’s inventory is an important first step before putting the list of available works online. This step is carried out by the museum team and directed by Judith Colins, our volunteer librarian.

On the website of the museum, section Hort@home, you'll find the several lectures presented during the Symposium “SECRETS OF THE STUDIOS, THE ART NOUVEAU ORNAMENT”, organised by the Horta Museum on 18th of September 2020 at the CIVA.

Thanks to the support and aid of The Federation of Wallonia-Brussels, some furniture designed by Horta and a serie of mouldings of architectural details are photographed in 3D by the Atelier de l'Imagier. This is an other way to discover the work of Horta, to examen it in detail and observe it differently. An advanced technique of photography serving research and the amateur-photographe. Also a good example of a digital solution adapted to this closing period of musea.
