Hector Guimard sketches

Projet pour la couverture Revue d’art (1899).

French architect and designer Hector Guimard (1867–1942) is most renowned today for his entrances to the Paris Metro but his work extended from architecture to interior and graphic design, much of it a superior application of the Art Nouveau style. Le cercle Guimard is a site devoted to the designer’s work (French-only for now) while these sketches are from a substantial collection at the Musée d’Orsay, Paris.
