Long Performance




Long Performance

I observed this view in Paris last month in the Tuileries Garden at the Louvre.
The sculpture is titled “La Nymphe” by Aristide Maillol. She looks like she is performing for the crowd in front.
I didn’t, and won’t, try to figure out what the guys in the bushes was all about.
7.5”x 11” ink and watercolor

    1. There were a number of these sculptures throughout the garden. Many ignored them. others seemed to be waiting to see if they would move. Others… I have no idea what they were doing.
