Florence Henri - Musee du Jeu de Paume, Paris through 17 May 2015

What are you doing this weekend?

It's supposed to rain in L.A. so we are thinking of going to a museum.

If we were in Paris, we would definitely go to this:

"Florence Henri (New York 1893 – Compiègne (France) 1982) was a multi-faceted artist, who was first known for her paintings before making a name for herself as a major figure in avant-garde photography between the end of the 1920s and the beginning of the 1940s........

The Jeu de Paume is presenting a vast panorama of Florence Henri’s photographic production 

from 1927 to 1940, including her self-portraits, abstract compositions, portraits of artists, nudes, photomontages, photocollages, as well as documentary photos taken in Rome, Paris and Brittany."  (From the Jeu de Paume website.)

I had never heard of her before.  Had you?  

Have a wonderful week end!
