Ginkgo and Art Nouveau in Nancy, France
Nancy was the centre of the Art Nouveau movement (New Art) in France starting at the end of the 19th century. The leaves and seeds of the Ginkgo were one of the patterns used.
I made this video in 2010 of stained-glass windows painted by Jacques Gruber with Ginkgo leaves and seeds.
