Jane Gray (b.1931)

Place Maubert, Paris (1951)


Ink on paper

24.5 x 15.5 cm


This adolescent urban sketch of Paris depicts, as Gray notes next to her signature, Place Maubert, and shows Gray to be an observant and sensitive draughtsman. Lying in the 5th Arrondissement of Paris, the Place Maubert has a rich history, once used for debates and academics, and a famed site for religious pilgrimages, today it plays host to a popular open air market.

Provenance: the artist’s studio sale.

Condition: very good.
