This last time in London I programmed to visit the Lowry exhibition at the Tate Britain
I chose a rainy morning as it was the perfect weather for a museum visit but I really couldn’t have made a better choice as when I came out and found myself in front of the Thames under the falling rain I felt as I was walking inside a Lowry painting.
I really fell in love with this british artist that catched in his paintings all the poetry of the urban daily life of the industrial britain: be sure not to miss this great exhibition that is going on until the 20th October

‘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
trough the Contemporary Collection hosted on the 4th level of the Centre Pompidou

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…
