Provenance: acquired directly from the artist, private collection.

Löis Mailou Jones painted many colorful landscapes around the sunny hills of this picturesque medieval town. This large watercolor typifies her postwar approach to landscape. Cabris is a picturesque village in the Alpes-Maritimes department of southeastern France, and was the hometown of her close friend Céline Tabary. Jones first visited the town in 1937 during her first year of studies in Paris, and returned numerous times over a period of some 50 years. Jones and her husband Pierre-Noël also were married there in 1953.
