Portrait of Éliane

Éliane, c. 1957.

RESULTS OF THE RACES.

November 14, 1957; a springboard for ÉLIANE RADIGUE who is on her way to trace along her personal legend: music. She is in Dusserldorf, in Germany to make her way in her career of musician.
ARMAN is alone in Nice to take care of the three children (6,4 and 3 years old) in a context of financial and organizational trouble…
At this moment in time, ÉLIANE is the one who has the wheel in motion with her work.

They both realized they cannot leave the house together as they were doing before, the children being now at school. Both parents are facing the logistic questions that everyone knows when both are working…
The material situation remains difficult and ARMAN encourages ÉLIANE to take advantage of the opportunities: he asks her to have a drive and to succeed thus possibly ensuring a better future.
This November 1957, when Éliane returns to Nice in their home at "Parc de la Californie", it is the end of her expectations for personal achievement…
Everyday life didn't go well, the children are perturbed and in a disorder for both their feeding organization and their overall rhythm.
The father is rather depressed from the difficulties to deal with daily problems, in addition to his sentimental escapades. Arman is seeking for comfort in other arms while his beautiful one is absent…

Éliane will have to make a drastic decision for herself: give up leaving home to assume the continuity of the family life.

RESULT OF THE RACES: this will be Arman taking-off towards where we know!...
