Admiring


I like this photograph for two reasons. One, I like this young man as he admires a piece of artwork that I don't see. The second is the painting in the background. My friends and family know that I have a long running affair of the heart with la Tour Eiffel. L'Equipe de Cadiff by artist Robert Delaunay, caught my eye at the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. J'adore!

I like your photo for the same reasons, V!

A nice shot of a nice inside (I know, something has to be done about the dirty outside)!

Robert and Sonia formed obviously a nice couple, working together, influencing each other, positively!

What a fine composition, Virginia - nice capture of the rhythm, the viewer standing, almost on tip-toes as he admires the painting; nicely balanced with the painting you like on the back wall.

I've been patiently waiting for more info on this museum. I like that painting on the back wall as well.

Lovely. My favorite museum in Paris, so far? Did you have a cup of chocolate chaud in the café? There is a wonderful view of la Tour from there.

Virginia said...

style,
No, but we enjoyed a sip last summer on the terrace of the Architecture Museum overlooking Trocadero and la Tour. Fab view for a few euros! :)

Harriet,
Peter and I saw a very nice Cartier-Bresson exhibit here last summer. It's also where we saw the Dufy mural that I've featured from our last visit.

Peter,
Yes, now get to work on getting the outside all nice and spiffed up so I won't be pouty on my next visit. :)

Louis and Shell,
Merci!

I am so glad I came across your blog. I am on a mission to get to Paris, myself. I love L'Equipe de Cadiff...the Eiffel Tower makes everything look magnifique.

That's not fair. When I go to the Musée d'Art Moderne, all they have is crap. When you go, they have real art pieces.

I LOOOOOOOVE THAT PAINTING!!! I must find out more.

Virginia said...

ET Suz,
I'll email you with a little surprise.

Corine,
A new reader? Bienvenue!!!

Starman,
Now I'll admit some of the art here didn't ring my bell either. But this painting and another of the ET in the next room I loved.
