• The Cello in Art (11) – Doisneau and Baquet/3

Aren’t words wonderful?  There I was, looking for a brief post, and my eyes lit upon this image.  It’s called Le Sabordage, another in the series of inspired photographs by Robert Doisneau in collaboration with the whacky cellist Maurice Baquet.

• Not knowing what sabordage meant, I had to scurry to my Harrap’s Shorter French and English Dictionary (1).
• On the way, I knocked over the family’s Old English coal bucket (2).
• And I discovered that it means the deliberate sinking of one’s own ship (3).
