Friday's Fabulous Woman: Niki de Saint-Phalle

Niki de Saint-Phalle, a Franco-American sculptor created one of my favorite places in Paris: the colorful, whimsical spouting sculptures in the Stravinsky Fountain next to the Pompidou Center.   Her work is big and bold and never boring.   I particularly love the work installed in parks and public spaces -- I love the contrast between the sculpture and its surroundings.
