My Favorite Paris Drawings

Edward G. Nilges, “Assemblage of My Paris Sketches”, from drawings made in 2004, 2008 and 2009 in pencil, ink, wash, some modified using Gimp.

Clockwise from upper left hand corner:

1. A woman pauses in front of a painting in the Louvre. Her kid is a real rascal who is for the moment quite pleased with himself.

2. Two gentlemen in the cafe

3. A snooty French girl sees me drawing her, probably thinks I’m a Yank who doesn’t know my ass from a hole in the ground

4. The large blue and highlighted drawing is after Poussin’s Rebecca at the Welll

5. A Sabine Woman interposes herself between the Romans and the Sabines in Jacques-Louis David’s large painting

6. Top to bottom, a girl with big hair notices me drawing her in the Louvre cafe, a Senegalese guy is attentive and still, an aging Frenchman smokes.

7. Athena
