The Vitruvian Max


The Vitruvian Max (after the world-renowned drawing by Leonardo da Vinci - The Vitruvian Man)
The Wall Drawing behind Max is by Sol LeWitt and is in Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Sol LeWitt's wall drawings are radical because they are temporary and are meant to be executed by others based on the artist's directions. The LeWitt's instructions for this work are: "Six white geometric figures (outlines) superimposed on a black wall." The museum's staff use this sentence as a guide when they re-create it for different exhibitions!

Max, moi et Paris

(Notre-Dame de Paris by Max)

I'm planning a trip to Paris with Max. He is very keen on seeing the main sites on his first visit. Here is our plan for a long weekend in Paris:

In all my previous visits to Paris, I had never gone up the Eiffel Tower. Perhaps I had been unintentionally saving it up to enjoy with my 10-year-old son who could really show me how!

Musee D'Orsay used to be a former train station and is now a world class museum housing primarily the French art of the 1800's. Collections of Manet, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Gauguin, Monet, Latrec abound. Almost demolished in the 1970's, then remodeled and turned into one of the foremost museums in Paris. It is a definite must!

The Louvre easily needs a full day. Mona Lisa, here we come!
Do we still have time for Basilique du Sacre-Coeur, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame de Paris, Mus?e Rodin, Champs-Elysees, Mus?e Picasso?
