The enchanting City of Lights shines as never before--in watercolor! Previously, painter David Gentleman used his creativity and keen eye to evoke his native Britain. He now ventures beyond his own shores to express his passion for the beautiful city of Paris, with its leafy boulevards, Metro, Luxembourg Gardens, and "architectural survivors" of a time gone by. A palpable sense of history emerges in representations of the splendid seventeenth-century buildings and courtyard of the Marais and the Faubourg St. Germain, while he catches Paris's vitality in its vibrant café life.
"A marvelous watercolour guide to the splendours of the city."--The Sunday Times. "A satisfying and strongly personal celebration of the sights of Paris..."--Spectator.
