‘Femmes au chien’ by Marie Laurencin

Probably my favourite exhibition of these last months is the one that pay homage at Marie Laurencin and that is going on at the Musée Marmottan Monet until the end of this week*: absolutely not to be missed!

Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to take pictures, so up here is a close-up of a painting hosted in the beautiful Musée de l’Orangerie, where I first discovered and fell in love with her paintings. In the Marmottan exhibition most of the artworks are coming from Tokyo, where there is a whole Museum dedicated at this french artist: no wonder why she is so loved in Japan…

*edited: good news! the exhibition has been prolonged until the 21th july

From the “Tabula” series: simple geometries born within the canvas folding. Despite its dramatic vibe this massive painting here below makes me think of a overused makeup palette…


A close up of my favourite one from the “Blanc” series, where the empty space gets as alive as the colours.

The Simon Hantai retrospective will go on until the 2nd of september 2013

père lachaise blues


After almost a year I went visiting the Père Lachaise Cemetery back again the last two following weekends


my advice is to forget the maps and to simply get lost following your own path


…and don’t be afraid to miss Jim Morrison’s grave: it is one of the easiest to find as there is always a “happening” going on. Or you may also follow people bringing bottles and weirdos.

Asking your opinion: it may sound a little creepy but I’m thinking about adding a new “cemeteries” tag as I have a few posts on this subject… what do you think about it?
