Vintage Pen and Ink


(I am uploading these images smaller...at least they are
working!)
This is a pair of pen and ink lithographs that I bought
several years ago in a junk shop. They were framed and
rather dusty, back in a corner....absolute hidden treasures.
They were here in Louisiana, and I suppose someone
visited Paris long ago, bought them as souvenirs, and then
no one wanted them when it came time to divide up the
household. I bought them for a song. The top one is Notre
Dame with the charming fishermen in the foreground. The
other one is the famous Opera House.
I am using them in another collage I am working on. I made
enlarged copies of them, and I am combining them with some
vintage postcards, labels, etc.
