Shadow Shot Sunday 121 - Mamac, Nice


















Mamac in Nice is the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and the morning I visited, the building and roof terrace were displaying their best artistic shadows competing with the works of art on display inside the galleries....


















I love all these strong shapes creating bold geometric patterns around the building which amount to abstract pieces of art in their own right....
















Inside a wide range of work by a variety of different artists from Matisse to Yves Klein to Leger is on display. Find the Museum in the centre of Nice, at the Promenade des Arts. For other shadow shots from around the world this week, check out Shadow Shot Sunday by clicking here. Enjoy!

The shadow shapes you're finding in Monaco are so much different than those you found in Mexico, but, of course, charming in their own right!
FOR LOVE OF SHADOW

Tell your shadow that you love her,
Spurn your shadow, if you dare.
Keep your shadow out of darkness,
Keep her in the sun’s harsh glare!

The exterior is so cool! I like the curved metal trellis, if not a museum, grapevines would look perfect on it - excellent shadow, too!

This museum has such an eclectic look. A visit would ensnare me as I viewed the wide variety of exhibits. Neat captures!

You do find the greatest shadow shots, Catherine!! So different from the ones from Mexico, but fantastic and so colorful and interesting! I know you're having a great time and I'm so happy for you! Enjoy your weekend!

Oh you do get around! I have not visited for ages so didn't know you had moved! I like your art shadow shots. I have visited Nice once and went to the Matisse museum which I really liked.

Well, if not the simple life, at least you have plenty of shadows, Catherine. Beautifully done.

What an interesting collage of shadows, and the angles are amazing.

How lucky you are to have been able to visit such a fantastic museum with all the history and art.

Wonderful photos! The shadows on the outside are as interesting as the exhibits on the inside. I do love the bold colors of the art displays.

Clearly having too much fun, from the terrace to the museums, and everything in between, whether they cast shadows or not...

Am getting greener with each passing post... :-)

These shadows of the outside are really fantastic - they compete nicely with the famous art inside for sure!!

louciao said...

I can't help but wonder if the architects consider the shadows that will be cast by their designs and take that into consideration, studying the angle of the sun. If not, your photos would surely inspire them to do so. Art inside and outside the building; the best of both worlds. Lucky you! And lucky us that you display it on your blog.
