Modigliani and ? outside la Ruche - the hive - an octagonal building of ateliers
Foujita's atelier and Kiki de Montparnasse's stomping ground
la Ruche - the hive
I'm snatching WIFI from the air somewhere below Montparnasse. It could evaporate any moment so I'm doing this very quickly and will ask Leighton to post if I go off into the ether again
This weekend several districts had open artist studios. Words fail me trying to describe the photographer's photos of Chernobyl 25 years after...but that's another story. Today Naftali, remember the Jewish Resistant who's father was imprisoned and murdered by the Germans? Today he took me on another memory trip and we were in the 'footsteps of Modigliani' along with Picasso, Soutine, Matisse all regulars in these ateliers at one time. Just imagine the warm soft wind on those leaves...
