Berber... Women...

Of... Morocco...

Exhibition... was...

Mysterious...

Authentic...

Not only was I whisked away... transported to that magnificent land... which mesmerised me... at first sight... it also brought back vivid memories... during my journey there... and the stunningly beautiful Berber jewellery I collected... loved and adored and still wear today...

Pour moi... it was a moment...

When time... stood still...

Georges Braque.. Intellectual Artist...

"If... you...

Georges... Braque...

Were asked... to sum up...

The essence of Cubism... in just a few words...

What... would you say...?"

"On a surface that is drawn, constructed and painted, it gives a multiple vision of the world, offering all the facets of things simultaneously, drawing the eye back to the surface of the canvas, back from the horizon into which it had wandered, adrift in a space dictated by convention."

Tamara de Lempicka... The Queen of Art Deco...

The...

Tamara... de Lempicka...

Suite...

At... the...

Grand Hotel... et de Milan...

Once again... I am transported to that moment in time... when one comes "face à face"... so to speak with an icon... "l'esprit Lempicka"... by staying in the very suite she stayed in... which was named after her...
