Evening, Montparnasse

Evie Hone

b. 1894 - d. 1955
1920 Gouache on paper

It is evident in Evening, Montparnasse that Hone is more concerned with pattern and colour than architectural detail.

A gouache urban landscape painting. In the foreground are railings and in the middle-ground a blue stripe, possibly representing the road surface. Buildings are at either side. Several street lamps can be seen throughout the urban landscape stretching along the road.
