Garden Pavilion
School of Nancy Museum in Nancy, France

This Art Nouveau structure stands in gardens of the museum (the former J. B. E. Corbin estate).  The sources available to me have not been entirely clear, but it seems likely that this is the funereal chamber that one source claims "was built in 1901 by the architect Girard and the sculptor Pierre Roche".  I have not found any other info on Girard and am left wondering whether the source actually meant Hector Guimard, France's best known Art Nouveau architect, instead.  His designs for the Paris Metropolitan (subway) station entrances (circa 1900) epitomize the very essence of Art Nouveau style.  Photo taken in 1982 by Howard J. Partridge.
