Nîmes -- Musée des Beaux Arts

In August I went to Nîmes, Yan was already there for work and I joined him just for a weekend. I made a whole sketchbook about its streets and people, but for the moment here are some pages that I made in the Fine Arts Museums.

This is a miniature tiny sculpture of a laundry girl:

Do you know who made this lovely liitle beauty? Étienne Falconet, THE Falconet, the one who made the Bronze Horseman in Saint-Petersburg

  And then I scribbled a little part of the painting 'Adoration des bergers' -- Adoration of the Shepherds --  of Bartolomeo Guidobono. It's a huge beautiful painting, but I sketched just this young tender Madonna girl with her little boy

   And so the next Nîmes pqges in the next posts!
