Hotel Tassel Stairwell

Manually vectorized (meaning, did not hit Live Trace button) from a photo of Victor Horta's stairwell in the Hotel Tassel in Belgium.

Illustrator, approximately 60 hours, 12 days.

Edit: I dug up one of the original edits that I'd done of this where the colours were warmer and more vibrant.

Lovely. Especially nice since so many photos lose some of the wall to glare from the light. Would you have any interest in a commission to create a simple vector art medallion in the style of Horta? I'm trying to find an artist to create the artwork for a large floor stencil, but it's extraordinarily difficult to find an someone who can execute Art Nouveau in anything but Mucha. I know this is trace work, but I thought perhaps it would have given you a feel for the overall style of his line work. Send me a note if you have any interest.
This image is amazing, and so beautifully captures Horta's work. I am working on a project at university on the influence of nature on design and would love to use this image. Would it be possible to have a clean image without the text? You would of course be acknowledged, so please also let me know any information you would like me to include.
Many thanks in advance.

Kind of reluctant to distribute the image since the source reference was neither one of my own photos or open stock. If you want to use it as is, go ahead. Though there's not really anything I can do to stop you from doing so. Thanks for the interest, though. :)

I love this piece. It's like a stairway through another world. I like the contrast between hard detail on the stairs and soft abstractness in the background.
