Photographer's Note

This is second photo of the sign of the metro station Blanche on line 2. This metro station sign is in Boulevard de Clichy in Paris. The sign was designed by Art Nouveau architect Hector Guimard (1867-1942). Like h many Art Nouveau artists and architect he was not at first particularly appreciated by his contemporaries. However, after some time it became fashionable among some art historians to praise his architectural and decorative work. Today I think most of us enjoy his work and are grateful that a number of his metro station signs and entrances are still there.
