Art Exhibition / Maurice Utrillo

IMG_3405_convert_20130830080132.jpg

I went to an art museum to see Utrillo's works.
There were 76 works and many people came to see them. Some of visitors were elementary school students. They were lucky to have the class. I wanted my son to come with me although he wasn't interested in it.

Utrillo was born in 1883. He had painted many landscapes in Paris. They were very beautiful. And some of his works were painted the same buildings from different directions, seasons or years.
Unfortunately he hadn't grown up in a happy family. People didn't know who his father was. His mother had many boyfriends and she left Utrillo with her mother. Utrillo's grandmother used to drink wine in the evenings and it seemed she often gave Utrillo a little of wine since he was a child. So he loved wine and he had been alcoholic in his life.

I love his paintings. I've never been to France, but I want to go see the landscape.
And those paintings made me feel that I want to draw a landscape around here.
