Happy Birthday Niki de Saint Phalle!! This French woman was born in 1930, originally Catherine Marie Agnes Fal de Saint Phalle, and was a sculptor, painter, and film maker. Her family moved to the US when she was three years old. At age eighteen she eloped, moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she began to paint. After a trip to Spain, Saint Phalle became enthralled with Antonio Gaudi’s work, especially his Park Guell, and was inspired to design a sculpture garden influenced by his fascinating, organic forms. Located in Tuscany, Italy, I am including Giardino dei Tarocchi (Tarot Garden), a mosaic tile covered menagerie of fantasy creatures, in my blog today.
