  • PROVENANCE:

    EXHIBITED:
    Glasgow University Print Room, J.D. Fergusson Watercolours and Drawings, April-May 1961, cat.no.4

    The Cafe de Harcourt was one of Fergusson's favourites in Montparnasse, where artists, seamstresses and milliners who might model their creations mixed in a convivial atmosphere. Fergusson sketched compulsively in pocket books in conte, but rarely heightened them with colour as seen here.
