Day 17. Ossip Zadkine

Today we went to the little village Les Arques in the region Lot.
It was claudy and fresh when we left.
A beautiful drive down south.
The sun came out and it was warm, but very pleasant.

In Les Arques is the Musée Zadkine with work by this famous sculptor.
Ossip Zakine, born in 1890 Russia (Smolensk) has had his atelier for many years in Les Arques.
He passed away in 1967 in Paris, and is buried on the graveyard Montparnasse.

The museum is very small, but inside is a great exhibition from his work. 
Sculptures from wood, stone, bronze, drawings, tapestry, ceramic.

Is was just wonderfull, touching, moving and very impressive to see.
He was one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th Century.

Outside are sculptures too and inside the church one can see a beautiful Pietá.

Here are some images I took.









I am sure when I have the opportunity to go again I certainly will.
