Urbane Saint Germain
A small piece of Saint Germain des Prés I have photographed and drawn many times is a corner where rue de l’Echaudé splits off from rue de Seine.
For this piece I have to wait patiently for a person to walk into my frame. Who is it? It could be male or female (perhaps it is you) though I sense my subject has a European air – as urbane as the surroundings. Having drawn the streets so many times in great detail, this time I seek only an impression.
Below are more drawings of this immediate area, drawn at intervals over several years.
“Urbane Saint Germain” is the final drawing for the “Remember Paris” exhibition this coming September. To view the catalogue of 30 drawings, their descriptions and prices, click here.
