Notre Septembre Inoubliable – Zadkine

 Allons-y ! On y va ! C’est parti ! Suivez-moi en France où je vais vous parler d’un mois de septembre inoubliable ! 

Let’s go! Follow me to France where I will tell you about a September to remember!

Aujourd’hui, c’est le dernier jour du défi “A à Z” ! Je suis un peu triste, mais aussi fatiguée. Je n’ai pas pu visité autant d’autres blogs que ce que j’aurais aimé pendant le mois d’avril.  Il faut que je visite plus de sites en mai ! Après avoir écrit mon post ce soir, je vais aller me reposer, mais je vais certainement vous rejoindre pour le jour où tout le monde va “réfléchir” sur l’expérience “A à Z” ! 

Today is the last day of the A to Z challenge! I’m a little sad, but also very tired. I didn’t get to visit as many other blogs as I had wanted to during April, so I will be visiting a lot of them in May! After I write this post tonight, I am going to take a break, but I am definitely going to be back for the “A to Z Reflections” post!

(To read last year’s post, “Z is for Musée Zadkine” Click HERE )

Est-ce que nous y sommes allés? (Did we go there?)

Alors… non. Nous n’avons pas visité ce musée à Paris, mais nous avons vu une sculpture de Zadkine au Musée Réattu à Arles.  Ce musée est très intéressant et très beau; c’est l’ancien Grand-Prieuré de l’Ordre de Malte, mais en 1796 l’artiste Jacques Réattu l’a acheté comme atelier. Maintenant, on peut y voir ses oeuvres, et ceux d’autres artistes y compris Zadkine et même Picasso.  Quand nous y sommes allés, il y avait une exposition des photos de Lucien Clergue, un photographe célèbre d’Arles, et ami de Picasso. 

So…no. We didn’t visit this museum in Paris, but we did see one of Zadkine’s sculptures in the Musée Réattu in Arles. This museum is very interesting and very beautiful; It’s the former Priory of the Knights of Malta, but in 1796 the artist Jacques Réattu bought it for a place to work and paint. Now, you can see his works there, among the works of many other artists, including Picasso, and of course, Zadkine. When we were there, there was a photography exhibit featuring the work of Lucien Clergue, a famous photographer from Arles and friend of Picasso.

Comment cela s’est-il passé ? (So how was it?)

C’était fascinant ! J’aime bien la sculpture de Zadkine… je crois. Qu’en pensez-vous ?

Si c’était à refaire, qu’est-ce que je ferais de différent? (If I could do it again, would I do anything differently?)

C’était une bonne journée à Arles avec nos amis, et j’était très contente d’avoir vu la sculpture de Zadkine. La prochaine fois que nous irons à Paris, je vais absolument visiter le Musée Zadkine.

This was a wonderful day in Arles with our friends, and I was very happy to have seen Zadkine’s sculpture. The next time we go to Paris I am absolutely going to visit the Zadkine museum there.

    Bravo pour la fin de cete aventure franco-américaine !
    Pour ma part, j’ai visité un mini-musée dans un très petit village.
    C’était un coiffeur parisien qui l’avait créé.
    Ses oeuvres étaient en papier mâché ! Mais en fait, ce mini-musée n’était qu’un prétexte pour le coiffeur de se mettre en valeur, que l’on parle de lui et qu’on l’admire !
    C’était très drôle au final !

    When I worked and lived on the road in the U.S., I took every opportunity to visit museums and attractions in the small towns and cities where I visited. We saw some very strange and unique places in our travels.

    Tres bon! I saw one of Zadkine’s sculptures near Les Deux Magots in Latin Quarter and have written posts about him and his wife Valentine in past A to Z Challenges. I’m Canadian, and did our travelling in September as well. Nice to meet you! I will come back to check more of your posts in May also. Thanks for dropping by my blog!

      C’est un plaisir de lire votre blog! J’adore Canada, I actually go to several cities in Canada when I’m at work. I’m so glad Arlee included your blog in his list of French-inspired A to Z’s 🙂 Thanks for the visit!

      Thanks for the visit! Yes, me too, I’m looking forward to perusing yours and many other A to Z’s at a more relaxed pace. I think your theme is fascinating! Even though I don’t have any plans to move to Maui, I love getting a look “behind the scenes” of what it take to live there 🙂

    D’accord avec vous pour visiter les musées dans les villes et villages de France. On y apprend tant de choses! Je ne connais pas Arles aussi bien que d’autres villes et ne suis jamais allée dans ce musee. Alors contente d’avoir fini le challenge? A plus tard.

    Ca a toujours un cote magique de visiter des endroits hors des sentiers battus et de decouvrir des petits musees locaux. Mon oncle vivait a Arles fut un temps — maintenant il est a Compiegne mais il avait adore Arles. Je n’y suis malheureusement jamais alle – pour un jour plus tard!

      Merci pour ton commentaire, Celine! Il faut vister Arles, c’est beau ! De plus, en septembre c’était assez tranquille, il n’y a pas trop de touristes 😉
