A Day Far From Tours --- Day 6/72

Walk: No (Hot)
Distance: 0 essentially, Home Yoga



How nice for Ciwt to be able to spend a quiet day with flower arranging, Classical KDFC and Henri Matisse - reading at will and without having to put her thoughts into an 'art tour' box.  She really likes these little 'This is ....'  series for an informative as well as visually pleasing experience.  Short, easy, to the point And by excellent illustrators and art scholars.  For instance, the Matisse book's co-authors have the following credentials:

Catherine Ingram obtained a First Class Honours degree at Glasgow University. After an MA in 19th Century art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, Catherine became a graduate scholar at Trinity College, Oxford. After finishing her D.Phil, she was made a Prize Fellow at Magdalen College, Oxford.

Agnès Decourchelle is an illustrator who primarily works in pencil and watercolours. She received her Diploma in illustration from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 2001 and an MA in Communication Art and Design from the Royal College of Art in London in 2003. She lives and works in Paris.
