3 - From Sainte-Marie park to the Ecole de Nancy Museum, discovering Nancy’s Art Nouveau

 30th August   2:30 to 5:00 pm   

When we think about the city around 1900, the neighbourhood of the park Sainte Marie is a must-see. Back in 1909 this green haven welcomed the International Great Exhibition of Eastern France whose main attraction was the discovering of hot springs which gave birth to a swimming-pool complex (currently under renovation).
The growing spa industry influenced the surrounding architecture. The nearby Félix Faure street, with its “sea front” style houses is one of the finest example of Art Nouveau in Nancy. This is where one can admire houses designed by César Pain. Their mixed materials and colours give them the qualities of architectural jewels.

You shall end your walk at the Ecole de Nancy museum, just a few meters away from the park. Former home of the Ecole de Nancy movement benefactor Eugène Corbin, the museum houses a rich collection of Art and Design displayed in intimate rooms.
During the visit you will come across furniture designed by the famous Emile Gallé, the innovative yet poetic lines of Louis Majorelle and even amazing stained-glass windows by Jacques Gruber.

Highlight of your visit : visit of the garden of the Museum, Very pleasant with his ponds and his plantations, with numerous plant varieties designed by the contemporary horticulturalists of the School of Nancy
