Les 100 ans de la Brasserie
La Brasserie des Brotteaux, one of Lyon’s top restaurants
At the dawn of the last century, Paris-Lyon-Marseille Company trains stopped at the Brotteaux station. It was in this magnificent building in 1913 that La Brasserie des Brotteaux was built. From this era when art adorned the walls of Paris metro stations, the Art Nouveau faïence ceramic tiles of the Brasserie have remained intact. This Art Nouveau drew its inspiration from the curves seen in nature, trees, flowers, animals as well as nature’s colours.
On entering the Brasserie, you’ll be astonished at the historical monument listed interior, offering you a one-of-a-kind, beautiful location in Lyon!
Art Nouveau came to be at the beginning of the 20th century when Europe evolved into an industrial society and in reaction to this, this art advocated the return of nature as the very essence of Art. Art Nouveau is therefore characterised by wavy, entangled forms, curls, spirals and arabesque designs favouring the aesthetics of curves and asymmetries. It is the art of ornamentation, plants and flowers. This is what characterises the ornaments embellishing La Brasserie des Brotteaux.
This art of emotion and sensuality was expressed in many diverse fields such as architecture, furniture, calligraphy, mosaics and frescoes. Let us evoke the main proponents of this art: Hector Guimard (the famous entrances to the Paris metros), Alfons Mucha, Emile Gallé, Louis Majorelle and Antoni Gaudi. We note that Hector Guimard had an official ceramist, Louis Muller, to whom we owe the listed ornamental ceramics in La Brasserie Brotteaux.
