luxe, calme et volupté *

Escaped London just before the Olmypics started to get a glimpse of Estonian summer too.

* [Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté, / Luxe, calme et volupté. Charles Baudelaire, 1857]
[There all is order and beauty, / Luxury, peace, and pleasure]
[Seal vaid kord ja kaunidus, / Luksus, rahu, joobumus (tlk Tõnu Õnnepalu)]

Besides just relaxing and splurging on fresh berries and good food I've also been checking out some art exhibitons over here.
Today I went to see a exhibition named Luxe, calme et volupté just like a famous painting by Matisse. The exhibit explored bathers motif in Estonian art in 1920-1945. 

One more month to go!


[Bathers. Villem Ormisson, 1929]
