Sunset on Villa Strohl Fern
April 1, 2011
I went this evening to attend a conference on “the object in art” given by students of Rome’s French school at Villa Strohl Fern. Nice to see so many teenagers interested in art and talking about Vanitas paintings, Brigitte Bardot (as a ‘femme-objet’ of the 60s), Futurism or Edward Weston’s peppers.
The light in Rome is so marvelous at the end of the day that I escaped a couple minutes to take a few pictures of the sunset in the garden and the view on St Peter’s basilica. In a few days, I will come back here for a photo shoot to get new images for the exhibition on Villa Strohl Fern that will take place on May 10.
