Original drawings from "Paris to the Life," a sketch book with drawings by Doris Spiegel, text by Paul Morand and translated by Gerard Hopkins.
"Doris Spiegel's talent blossomed suddenly after several years of business experience. Her artistic training was not obtained by conventional methods. She found her models on the streets and subways of New York.
Her drawings showed such originality and understanding of life that she was soon awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to study abroad.
In Paris she found a wealth of material for her facile pencil and succeeded in a most remarkable way, and with the utmost economy of line, in grasping the French atmosphere. Miss Spiegel's dry points and engravings of French types are full of character and delicious humour and, like her drawings, notable for their simplicity.
Miss Spiegel's prints have been on exhibition at the National Academy, Society of American Etchers, International Print Show of Chicago Art Institute and Phildelphia Art Alliance."
