Some fantastic architectural sketches of Godalming by Alberto Mielgo.

Art nouveau architecture designs by the seemingly (and obviously unjustly) half-forgotten architect Em. van Averbeke.

That golden light could well summarise fin-de-siècle: the last warm days of autumn, the last sigh of European culture before the Disenchantment of the world.

Chair, Table and Interior Sketches for Fouquet’s Shop, 1900
Alphons Mucha
Detail

.

The association between Georges Fouquet and Alfons Mucha brought forth a further sensation: the frontage and fitting of Fouquet’s jeweller’s shop in the rue Royale in Paris. The Boutique Fouquet was the only commission of this type ever executed by Mucha. The result was a prime example of the synthesis of art as propagated by the protagonists of Art Nouveau, while at the same time providing a fitting, shrine-like, extravagant setting for the costly wares of the celebrated jeweller. The furniture rich in carvings and bronze fittings, tumid and sculptural in form, the coloured decorative glazing, the monumental murals and ornamental sculptures together created a theatrical and extravagant splendour in total accord with Mucha’s stylistic predilections. Unfortunately this splendour was not to endure: as early as 1923, Georges Fouquet decided to refurbish his shop. All the decorative fittings were dismantled, some of them later finding their way to the Musee Carnavalet in Paris. 
.


In the facade and interior decoration of Georges Fouquet’s jeweller’s shop, Mucha united decorative sculpture and painting, stained glass and sculptural furniture with bronze fittings to form a light-heartedly exotic environment. The design was thought out to the last details of door-knobs and fascia, and thus not only paid homage to the ideal of a “synthesis of art”, but at the same time revealed the decadence of the period. However Mucha’s creation at no. 6, rue Royale, lasted no longer than 1923, when it fell victim to a refurbishment. Parts of the original found a new home in the Musee Carnavalet in Paris.  all-art.org

Sketch of Sant’ Ivo in Rome. Laden with symbolism, specifically regarding burning intellectuality, this is quite possibly Borromini’s masterwork.
