A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE OF BRUSSELS
The Cauchie House, the private house of Paul Cauchie, built in 1905, can be considered as one of the most beautiful works of Art Nouveau in Brussels. (…) The artist has striven to assert and enhance his taste, his culture and position within a social context where conformism reigns supreme. (…) Paul Cauchie’s special quality lay in the fact that he understood that constructive logic — French architect Viollet-le-Duc and the iron myth, as adopted by Horta — could be refuted by a simple pictorial solution or, at the very least, by a purely figurative hypothesis.
Franco Borsi, Bruxelles 1900.
