Nice setting for an exhibition. I know her only for the figures of the Stravinsky Fountain, in Paris.
I am not sure if I like her works as art, but her figures are so joyful, creative and... photogenic!

Hi JM,

I love it! A dancing lady in the garden.
And look at the sculpture to the left. At least it looks like a sculpture. A small dog or an alf watching - a bit embaressed..... Very creative!

Best regards
Asta

Gotta love that Niki! I was looking at my photos of hers from Pompidou just this morning. She appreciates a "full" bodied woman and I like that!HA
