Art Nouveau in Timişoara: the fancy side of the history
The Art Nouveau in Timişoara (called here Secession, because of the Viennese sources) meet the strong tendencies of the Historicism of the previous decades. To the Historicism belonged sometimes quite Romantic touches, like heroic depictions of historical characters. Such is this halberdier, watching over a corner of the Stefanie Palais, a top notch piece of Secession.
