Serrurier-Bovy, after Gustave (Belgian, 1858-1910), Mid to late 20th century iron lamp beautifully crafted and executed by Francis J. Nowalk (American/Pittsburgh, B. 1928) after the 1904 brass original by Gustave Serrurier-Bovy, a Belgian furniture designer and architect who is credited (along with Paul Hankar, Victor Horta and Henry van de Velde) with developing the Art Nouveau style. The lamp is fitted with a stylistically period appropriate fabric shade. Unsigned, unmarked. 64.5 x 20 x 20 inches. Provenance: Francis J. Nowalk Collection, from the studio of the artist. While earning his way through Duquesne University in 1948, Francis J. Nowalk opened a small lighting business to capitalize on an early interest in lighting design. Since that time, he has been recognized as one of the highest skilled metal craft experts in Western Pennsylvania. His work in design and restoration can be found in public and private buildings across the region including Heinz Hall, the Duquesne Club, Frick Museum, the Arcade Shops, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Rolling Rock Country Club, Allegheny Country Club, the Andy Warhol Museum, and countless residences.
