French Friday (4.0)!

I received a grant two summers ago (uh, that would be 2007) to conduct some dissertation research in Paris at the BnF. I spent six weeks living in the most charming and lovely little studio apartment that was literally around the corner from the Place des Vosges. And I visited museums at least three or four times per week. And I was right near the Picasso Museum, which pretty much became my church. Anyway, my whole point with this is: I miss it immensely… and, sometimes, painfully. 😦 Severe nostalgia lately. So, for this edition of French Friday, I thought I’d pay homage to some of my favorite French artists and their love of words.

Fernand Léger:

Pablo Picasso:

Juan Gris:

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec:

Henri Matisse:
