A French Perspective in New York...
Join me as I search New York for everything that reminds me of Paris but of course is still New York. Follow me as I figure out what it means to be Paris in New York.
Tonight - Special screening of "Seraphine" at the Lycee Francais
A movie by Martin Provost, with Yolande Moreau
in French with English subtitle
In 1913, German art collector Wilhelm Uhde, who was the first person to buy Picasso’s work and to discover the work of Rousseau, rents an apartment in Senlis to write and rest, away from his city life in Paris. He hires a housecleaning woman, Seraphine, who is 48. Later, he discovers a little painting on wood in the house of some neighbors. He is very surprised to learn that Seraphine made it. It is the beginning of an unexpected and moving relationship between the avant-garde art collector and the visionary housecleaning lady.
