Many years ago, I picked up these two original numbered sketches from a man who was selling everything in his house and moving to Florida. They happen to be original sketches, numbered and signed by the artist. From the name of the artist–Jacquest–I assume he must have been French, and these scenes look like they could be any street in Paris. But they also remind me of my own town here– a small college town– that has all the essential shops like the ones portrayed here.
Beautiful, don’t you think?
