FIAC 2018: Part Two
2 November 2018
It was a wonderful day, the sun was shining bright!
I walked through the Bois de Boulogne, it felt a little desolate and scary, but then I emerged on the other side in front of the shiny and voluminous Fondation Louis Vuitton where there was an exhibition of Egon Schiele and Jean Michel Basquiat. Schiele sadly left me underwhelmed, I did not leave with the same feeling of awe I had after seeing the works at Vienna's Leopold Museum - lower ceilings, beautiful ornate awnings and deep coloured cloth walls. Basquiat showed his prolific life as a painter and how he depicted African American culture. He died young, as did Schiele, but that was all they really had in common apart from being figurative artists
