Henry van de Velde was a Belgian architect and designer; educated painter in Antwerp and Paris. In 1889, Henry van de Velde became a member of the artist association Les Vingts. Inspired by William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement, he began approx. 1890 to deal with architecture and design. His works are characterized by an abstract, dynamic line, and he soon emerged as a leading figure within art nouveau. Henry van de Velde was a versatile artist and also made a name for himself with furniture design, wallpaper patterns, posters and typography. Buildings include his own villa (1895, Uccle), the art (1904-11) and crafts school (1905-06), both in Weimar, the Werkbundteatret (1914, Cologne) and the later and more modernist Kröller-Müller Museum ( 1937-38, Otterlo).
