Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne Exhibit Debuts in Paris

A major exhibition of the works by famed '60s French artist couple Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne kicks off in Paris today at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, and will run through July 4. The Lalannes are known for their large-scale animal and nature sculptures, notably their sheep sculptures. But in this exhibition, more than 150 pieces, including those monumental sculptures as well as smaller everyday objects like furniture and silverware, will be on view. It will be the first retrospective in Paris since 1977, but as you may remember, Lalanne works took over Park Avenue in New York just this past Fall. Now more than ever, there's simply no reason not to say bonjour to Paris. Summer voyage, anyone? Check out some of the works on display below.
