Stravinsky Fountain

To me an extra special of our visit in Paris: 
The Stravinsky Fountain! It was created by Niki de Saint Phalle (French) and Jean Tinguely (Swiss) in 1982/83 and is located next to the Centre Georges Pompidous (another highlight). It consists of sixteen sculptures all referring to the most important compositions of Igor Stravinsky. 

I noticed only now that my attention was absolutely drawn to Niki's figures! 
I did not take one pic of Jean's iron sculptures! 

Anyway: Wishing you a happy day!

  1. Hello Christa:
    This all looks very jolly.

    We have an example of the work of Jean Tinguely here in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Budapest.

  2. Dear Christa - Lovely fun images in a sparkling Paris. Glad you had a great time.

  3. Hi Christa! We got back last night. I have two cards for you, which I didn't send, as they are really ugly!So... I'll send you one from England!

    I can see you had a good time in Paris, taking photos of really colourful sculptures (never mind the boring metal ones!)

    I wonder what Stravinsky would make of these sculptures, if he could see them? Would he be flattered? They are cheerful, anyway!

    Glad you could go to Paris!




  4. Serena e felice Pasqua a Te e Famiglia...ciao
