Paul de Pignol

I met this artist at a friend's dinner where we played with her rabbits all evening. She's been friends with him for more than a decade. He sculpts and draws in the tradition of Giacometti and shares a sculpting studio with another artist on the outskirts of Paris but draws in a small studio that looks out over the city and the Eiffel Tower. It was incredibly fun to go around with him one day. You had the sense of being way back in the last century, perhaps 75 or more years ago when Paris was still the center of the art world. If you click the title you'll get to his website and see more of his work.
