Photographer's Note

LA PISCINE (the swimming pool) in Roubaix celebrates its 20th anniversary as museum with an impressive Jawlensky exhibition, reason for us to spend a a couple of days culture tripping in French Flanders.

La Piscine is housed in the magnificent setting of A.Baert's 1932 Art Déco swimming baths, in the centre of Roubaix. Its collections focusses on 19th and 20th century paintings and especially sculptures.

We visited it for the superb Jawlensky exhibition and were pleasantly suprised by the works of the German painter Suzanna Hay (1962-2004). But perhaps the main star of the show was the museum itself.

IN THIS PICTURE you see the main swimming pool gallery.
