Seasonal fruit, Jacob Epstein, Le Corbusier

Freshly picked, local plums and Discovery apples at the Farmers' Market.

Bumping in to our biographer neighbour who tells a story about the sculptor, Jacob Epstein's first visit to Venice. The great artist removed his hat and put it beside him when he sat down. To his surprise and lasting amusement he found it gradually filling up with coins, donated by passers by.

I read in a book about Le Corbusier a quotation from the architect: "To look and then to observe and finally perhaps to discover ... It is then that inspiration may come."
