Hector Guimard

French architect

Guimard introduced Art Nouveau in Paris. He brought it from Bruxelles in 1894 when he visited Horta. This visit has upset all the work he was doing on Castel Beranger. Guimard is the most important Art Nouveau archiect in France. Nevertheless a large part of his works was destroyed. After his death, his widow proposed to Paris city concil to donate their private house to create a museum and it was refused!

Guimard designed his buildings as a whole including the wall papers, furniture, doors, tiles, stain glasses...
