Cornices – Citiscapes

When I moved to Paris, after many years in Rome, I felt the need to appropriate some aspect of the city, to become really at home here. Close to our apartment were Haussmann’s Grands Boulevards with their long perspectives: row upon row of windows and balconies, firewalls and chimney pots; motifs endlessly repeated and yet always different. I set to work on the Cityscapes.
