The Grand Palais is organising a major retrospective of the work of French painter and sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002), married to the artist Jean Tinguely with whom she created the Fontaine Stravinsky(Stravinsky Fountain) in front of the Pompidou Centre in Paris (1983). Arriving on the art scene in 1961 with herTirs (Shooting Paintings), designed to "make paintings to bleed", Niki de Saint Phalle is the author of the famous voluptuous Nanas (French slang for women) sculptures and the monumental sculptures in theGiardino dei Tarocchi (Garden of Tarot) in Tuscany. This retrospective is an opportunity to look back at the journey of one of the least conventional artists of her time.
