MAN is fortunate in its friends. One of them, French mosaic artist Francoise Moulet, has agreed to share with us her photos from the Prix Picassiette in Chartres, France. We have talked about the Prix in two previous posts, November 21 and November 27. Today, thanks to Ms. Moulet, we’ll get an expanded look at this international invitational that closed on November 21st.
41 of the 230 artists represented in the exhibit are pictured here. A few housekeeping notes:

The Prix Picassiette is produced by 3R Association, a French organization devoted to promoting mosaic art. Inspired by the famed work of Chartres resident Raymond Isadore, the biennial competition was launched in 1996.
