From the Train, Lourdes-Toulouse, France. watercolor, 14x21 cm. painted last week, on my way from the Pyrenees to Toulouse. This watercolor marks the beginning of my Carnet de Voyages- Sketchbook July 2012. I will be publishing daily now the sketches from this trip.
I've just read that the invention of the hand-held Kodak camera in 1888 opened the practice of photography to everybody, including artists! The Indianapolis Museum of Art is holding an exhibition of artists photographs with the masterpiece alongside, by Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Dennis, Felix Valloton, Eduard Vuillard, and other members of the Nabis Group, till September 2.
