Raymond Isidore: La Maison Picassiette

In May, I was lucky enough to have the chance to visit Raymond Isidore’s La Maison Picassiette in Chartres, France. I have mentioned Isidore’s tremendous creation briefly before (click here), but here I wanted to share some photographs I took during my visit with you. I don’t want to write too much about the site here, as you can find out some excellent information on the Spaces Archive page (click here), but the mosaic house took almost thirty years for Isidore to complete, earning him the name ‘Picassiette’ – a twist on the French term for scavenger (pique-assiette) and a reference to Pablo Picasso and plates (assiette). Please feel free to share your experience of Isidore’s Picassiette in the comments below, or by emailing kdoutsiderart@yahoo.com.
