Day 9-

Atols Loos on the left.                Unknown on the right.
I enjoyed the stop to the modern house of Tristin Tzara and to compare it to the houses across the street was curious. My vision of what the house would look like did not fit what I actually saw. Although this house was much more modern than the houses across the street, I was still surprised by the details. The stone and levels and use of materials were unexpected. I thought it would be much more minimal that what we saw.

Beautiful bushes on our walk to the next destination. 

Leonard Foujita
This was in the modern museum. The use of black & white and textiles, fabrics and the nude is beautiful.

I found this painting to be very beautiful and a bit disturbing at the same time. This piece was done in 1922 by Jean Foutier.  Similar to Auguste Herbin and Manet after the war... artists were again questioning their impact and also their outlook on the world. Painting went back to realism but with a twist...more dark both in subject matter and color . But the twist was that things became more distorted.
