Post by oludotunf » Tue Oct 16, 2018 5:49 am

Le groupe Urban Sketchers Paris a été invité par le Musée Rodin de Meudon (www.musee-rodin.fr/fr/meudon) à dessiner le samedi 20 octobre. C’est la résidence et atelier d’Auguste Rodin avec ses œuvres exposées dans des intérieurs rénovés. Elle se situe au 19 avenue Auguste Rodin - 92190 Meudon.

RDV à 13h : pour un pique-nique tous ensemble dans le parc du Musée. Puis nous pourrons visiter et dessiner dans les différents lieux : la maison de Rodin, la magnifique galerie des plâtres, l'atelier des Antiques et bien-sûr, le parc. Prévoir son pique-nique car il n’y a pas de café sur place. En cas d’intempérie, nous pourrons nous retrouver pour déjeuner (vers 12h) à "L'araignée au plafond", 3 Avenue Paul Bert, 92190 Meudon, entre le RER C et le musée.
RDV à 17h30 : pour partager nos dessins, boire un verre et échanger, nous nous retrouverons au Café bar "Le Percy" à l’angle de la rue des Monts et de l’avenue Henri Barbusse (juste à côté de l’arrêt de bus 190 pour Mairie d’Issy les Moulineaux)

Pour venir au musée :
R.E.R : Meudon Val Fleury (ligne C)
puis bus n°169 (arrêt Paul Bert)
Métro: Mairie d’Issy (ligne 12)
puis bus 190, 290, 169 (arrêt hôpital Percy)


Ce rendez-vous est gratuit et ouvert à tous, alors retrouvons-nous nombreux !

Meeting at 13h: for a picnic all together in the park of the Museum. Then we can visit and draw in the different places: the house of Rodin, the magnificent gallery of plasters and of course, the park. Plan a picnic because there is no café on site.

It was lovely to get out of Paris for once for a SketchCrawl (la Defense does not count). It was even better so to visit a place that I had never been: the Rodin Museum in Meudon: I have always loved the one in Paris, first as a tourist and now as a resident, and I enjoyed discovering the Meudon version. The grounds were larger and I did not have time to see everything, but I surely would like to return. What inspired me the most was the famous Penseur sculpture situated in the park, much less surrounded with trees than the replica in the museum in Paris. That provided space, peace, and freedom, all favorable ingredients for reflection. And with the town of Boulogne-Billancourt visible from afar, the sculpture had the perfect location for a sketch.

The turnout was great, there must have been 50 or so people sketching at some point, and many unfamiliar. All in all, a wonderful (and sunny) autumn day outside of Paris.
