This watercolor on brown prepared board is vertically oriented. The piece<br />
is reputedly a view of a Parisian street (perhaps in the 8th arrondissement), and the perspective is as if the viewer is on the fourth floor of an adjacent<br />
building. The upper two-thirds of the piece show a building-lined street,<br />
curving gently to the left. The buildings are about six stories tall, and<br />
additional rooftops are barely visible in the distance. On the ground<br />
floor of the buildings, there are traces of people, shops, and cafés. In<br />
the bottom third of the work, the road dissolves, but forms suggesting a<br />
few people populate the space.

Gift of Herbert Barrows
There are two separate drawings. The first is a colorful drawing of a gathering of people wearing formal attire. They are depicted as caricatures, with large heads. The other image is a sketch of three people, side by side. On the left, a woman is shown from the back; she wears a coat, hat, high heeled shoes, and carries an umbrella under her right arm. There is a man in the center, shown from the side. He is mid-step, and wears a coat, hat, and boots; he has a mustache. The sketch on the right appears to show the same woman that is depicted on the left, but from a side angle.
