I have not shared a guest’s drawing in the Creative spirit section for a long time. Today, this is a special drawing I’m showing you, because it is signed by Sempé, illustrator of the books Le Petit Nicolas. This drawing dates back 2008 and was made for the Hotel Aiglon.

For the first “Creative spirit” of 2012, the hôtel des Saints Pères in Saint-Germain-des-Prés shares with you these delicate drawings.

The hotel des Saints Pères, located right in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés and nearby the publisher Grasset, has always welcomed artists, seduced by the uniqueness of the place.
Last week, we had the visit of one of them, who kindly left a word and an exquisite drawing in the visitor’s book.

This new Creative Spirit let you discover a drawing from the Hotel Parc Saint Séverin visitor’s book.
This is obviously from one of the hotel’s windows that this guest drew his inspiration! It shows the lovely Saint Séverin church located just in front of the hotel.

Today in the Creative Spirit section, enjoy a drawing signed by a customer who left a deep footprint at the Hotel Aiglon. This is the British drawer and cartoonist Ronald Searle who designed this flying cat “Chataiglon”.
Mr Searle spent his career working for the New Yorker and Life magazine expressing his satirical eye on society. Drawings he made during his captivity in Singapore from 1941 to 1945 are a precious testimony of the daily reality during the 2nd world war. He is now recognized as a prolific artist who constantly managed to exploit his talent through various styles.
Mr and Mrs Searle are loyal customers of the hotel Aiglon for 35 years. So loyal that a suite has been renamed “the Searle Suite”. The artist has offered three lithographies for this room which confer a strong and unique personality to the place.
This article is also a way to thank Mr and Mrs Searle for their loyalty.

Today, Paris’ creative spirit takes place at the Hotel d’Orsay with this Eiffel Tower, so emblematic of the city of lights.
One of the hotel’s customer spontaneously illustrated his journey with this drawing and we want to share it with you.

Some of our customers sometimes draw in the hotel visitor’s book to express feelings about their stay.
We would like to share with you these pieces of humor, spontaneity and creativity with the “Creative spirit” section.
Translation: “I always stay at the Hotel Mansart”. Pun with the verb “descends” which means “go down” in a different context.
