Hmmmmmmmm


"Where have I seen that before?"

I spotted this painting by Robert Delaunay at the Musée de art moderne, and stopped in my tracks. I have a large reproduction of this in my home, and have enjoyed it every day.

Hi Virginia,

I love how you captured the woman tilting her head looking at the painting!

I can understand why the reproduction of this vibrant piece brings you so much pleasure on your wall. When one sees the original work it heightens the pleasure of a good reproduction.

I like the perspective of the tower from above. It is indeed vibrant to the max.

That is you in front of the wonderful Eiffel? I LOVE Delauney's obsession with the Eiffel but I've never seen an orginal! I think one can more fully appreicate his paintings after having experienced the real Eiffel! (PS it's so wonderful listening to the music while coming here, un grand merci!) PS I did a post about La tour eiffel awhile ago & mentioned you & Delauney too...

Duncan, Actually that is moi admiring the painting. My friend Mary took this photo and I didn't think of that when I watermarked it!

Rita,
Your post on la Tour was terrific and I appreciate the link! I'm researching the books you mentioned for my grandkids et moi.

I am not surprised it took you a while to recognize "La Vieille Dame." She was not clad in her usual monochrome coat, and was not surrounded by "la grisaille" in the Parisian sky :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
