Between break-up and reconciliation, the hand of Andrée Putman...
She renewed the connection
between elsewhere and tradi-
tion in 2008, by creating the
Voie Lactée (Milky Way) piano
for Pleyel, a highly symbolic
piece tied to her mother's past.
The interior of the cover pres-
ents the Milky Way she was
so fond of, painted on a back-
ground of International Klein
Blue. The black and white chec-
kerboard left her personal im-
print, the Putman hand, present,
superb, on the piano.
