    Musée Robert Tatin in Cossé-Le-Viven

    Fondest memory: A fond memory of mine is walking down the pathway to the Musée Robert Tatin - a museum dedicated to the works of this local French artist. What a great way to start off a museum! I remember looking at these odd, unique sculptures that lined that pat. Two that caught my eye were titled 'avoir' and 'etre' - 'to have' and 'to be'. It's funny... when I first started to learn French back when I was 11 years old, these were the 2 verbes we started to learn instantly. In fact, these were the most important verbes in the entire French language - almost everything revolves around them. And here were two statues, celebrating these verbes!

    Robert Tatin's wife, Lise Tatin, runs the museum. Her husband, Robert lived from 1902 until 1983. During his life he was a painter, an architect, and a sculpture. Many of his paintings and sculptures are on display. Lise was a passionate elder woman who guided my group around the museum and really gave us a unique perspective of her late husband's art.

    If you're in the area (north of Tours, west of Paris), I'd definitely make time to see this museum.

    Favorite thing: Read brochures! If you can understand French, click on this to enlarge and you can read the text. If you don't understand French, you can always click on the brochure so you can look at the pretty pictures. :)

    The one picture on the top-right of this brochure is absolutely amazing and full of detail. You have to see it! According to Lise Tatin, she said that piece is 'une celebration de la femme!' - Celebration of women!
