Spirit Lifting Signage

A typically erudite postage from the swooningly magnificent Hooting Yard reminds us of an old article by the art historian D H Laven, concerning the famous toilet sign competition held by the West Melbourne Sports Centre a year or so ago.  I can’t recall which artist emerged victorious from this particularly well-fought contest, but I do remember having a soft spot for the designs of local artist Nancy Rose-Willaker, whose incorporation of figures from the paintings of Manet and Cezanne would look good on any lavatory door. I reproduce them, for your impending edification, below.
