Enjoy, oui !

Rue du chapeau rouge
Enjoy, says an amazing steel wire art work in the window of a restaurant in rue du chapeau rouge. Oui, says another. They remind me of Cocteau or Picasso's brilliant one-line drawings : so simple yet so evocative...
Enjoy, dit un joli travail de fil de fer dans la vitrine d'un restaurant dans la rue du chapeau rouge. Oui, répond un autre. Ils me font penser à certains dessins de Cocteau ou de Picasso : un simple trait mais quel pouvoir d'évocation...

c'est marrant a l'ouverture de ton blog, cela m'a fait penser aux dessins de cocteau. Enfin de toute façon une superbe creation

Nathalie said...

Oui Olivier tu as raison, j'ai aussi rajouté un dessin de Cocteau.

Jack said...

Very cool. Yes, it does remind me of some one-line drawings, especially Picasso.

Bonjour! Nathalie...
I have to agree with your comment here:"so simple yet so evocative"

However, I'am not familiar with artist Cocteau yet, with "yet" being the operative word.

On the other hand, I'am familiar with Picasso's artwork, but not his one-line drawings.
Merci, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D

Picasso indeed, but he would never have written the word in English.

J'aime bien? c'est fin, c'est joli.
Pas trop dure de revenir au pays.

Oui très Cocteau ! Joli :)

Cela me fait penser à "L'ile aux enfants" (La linea).

Je n'aurais pas pensé d'emblée à Picasso et cependant, l'oeil, le dessin de l'oeil.
Une belle adresse.

My wife, Julie, recently created a work of art that incorporated the Picasso line drawings of doves.

You may be interested to check out Julie's www.ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com website today. Yesterday and today she showed a French Merci Train car sent by the people of France to each state in the USA in 1949 to thank the USA for assistance to post-war France.

Comme quoi la simplicité paye souvent et le coup de patte fait le reste...

Est ce aussi bon à l'intérieur que joli en vitrine?

RedPat said...

I love them! They remind me of Alexander Calder's wire portraits also.

Love this. You must come down when the new Cocteau museum opens in Menton - apparently in November. Come and stay. Massive modern structure in front of the market. An American who had the biggest collection of Cocteau in the world has donated it to Menton, hence the museum. The current museum, the Bastion, will remain and of course there is Cocteau's wedding chapel.

Je suis incapable de tracer des lignes mais je crois que je sais un peu écrire.
En tous les cas merci...

Looks like a cozy, wonderful place for dinner!

Tonight, I had dinner at the "Pardon my French" cafe' here in Eagan with our 11 year old daughter - quiches et salades!

Tu sais pourquoi la Paloma de Picasso est en place d'honneur dans notre famille! La prochaine fois à Paris, je te propose une visite au cinéma Studio 28, décoré par Cocteau! Il n'a pas qu'à Menton! :-) (Mais à Menton il y a aussi l'adorable Jilly!)

simply magnetifical!

Black Beauty said...

Oui, on dirait vraiment un dessin de Cocteau, au début je croyais meme que c'en était un ! ;=)

Virginia said...

I love this. Picasso is one of my favorites as is the Musée Picasso in Paris!
