"Paris provides constant stimulation; the city remains a fabulous animal, volatile, individualist and alive with its history and possibilities."
- Nicholas Philip James
The artist makes a creative investigation of Paris, walking through the various districts of the Opera, St. Lazare, Republic, Montmartre, Le Marais, St. Denis and St. Germain. His sketchbook records a web of discreet observations which underpinned the paintings. Notes on the history and character of the historic and fabled city accompany facsimiles of the small scale pencil studies.
