Victor Horta was a Belgian architect and designer who was one of the founders of the Art Nouveau movement. Born in 1861, he designed a number of houses of which the first, Hôtel Tassel, is considered by many to be the first Art Nouveau house. His private house and studio in Brussels, for which he designed every detail inside and out, is now a museum. In 1932 King Albert 1 of Belgium made Horta a Baron for his services to architecture. Horta, who in later life moved away from Art Nouveau to a more geometric style, died in 1947
