"Images of Fin-De-Siecle architecture reveals in photographs of remarkable immediacy the richness and the austerity of that moment in the development of modern architecture – during the 1890s and early 1900s – when the aesthetic response to the mechanization of the industrial era resulted in a flowering of imagery and forms so fresh and vigorous as to signal a decisive break with historical styles of the past."
