This afternoon we visited the pre-auction show at Sotheby's of Impressionist and Modern art work that will go on the block July 2-3. It includes almost every artist from Arp to Zadkine and among the "P's" alone there was at least one Picasso, Pisarro and Picabia.
Colette really wanted to buy a Rodin sculpture or Man Ray print but we'll have to miss the bidding. I was unimpressed with the quality of most everything else sadly. The exhibition ends July 2nd.
Down the street a bit was a show of nude female upper bodies by Bettina Rheims at the Galerie Noirmont. There is a lot of nipple and breast featured but because all the models are lying down and it's France, the three-dimensionality one sees in the US was missing. The show ends June 30th.
