    Sky Studies by Didier Petit de Meurville (1793 – 1873)

    46 Maddox Street
    W1S 1AY London
    United Kingdom

    An artist and diplomat, de Meurville was appointed the French Vice-Consul in Alicante in 1848. The inscription on one of this group of nine studies, drawn in gouache and watercolour, indicates they were executed from the Cigarette Factory in Alicante. Dating from around 1850, they were passed down in the artist's family until recently. The drawings, delicate and beautiful depictions of the various stages of dusk, are in exceptional condition having never been framed before.

    In June 1857 de Meurville was made Consul in San Sebastián, where he stayed until his retirement in 1872. In both places he made landscapes of the city and its surroundings. The majority of his work is now preserved at the Zumalakarregi Museum in Gipuzkoa, Northern Spain.
