The Handwriting on the Wall?



While staying in the countryside SE of Paris last summer, we visited the Musée Paul Dubois-Alfred Boucher in Bray sur Seine. This was a piece I especially liked by sculptor, Alfred Boucher.

I can see why you liked it, Virginia! It's the kind of sculpture I'd want to see from every angle but I like this one that you chose for us...and the sepia tones.

She's magnificent, V. As Ginnie said, I see why she appealed to you so much.

It's a good piece, but a little too modern for me.

Je ne connais pas ce musée à Bray-sur-Seine mais j'ai très envie d'aller le visiter! Moi aussi, j'aime beaucoup cette statue!

You may not believe me, bit I have a photo of a tombstone in Pére Lachaise that looks almost exactly like this!

Absolutely amazing! How do they do that - get the proportions so perfect in every way. It's like a real person took a step forward and turned to stone...

Lovely perspective here, too, V.

How elegant she is! But it looks like she could use a bath!

It's a wonderful sculpture! BTW, I think she just got out of the shower & is writing a note on the steamed-up mirror. Perhaps it's a thank-you note to her friend gravity! (if you see what I mean)

There's a quiet elegance about this piece. It's very beautiful indeed.

It's this sort of thing that makes me want to visit every little museum in France. Lovely.
