One of dozens of drawings by this artist that I recently acquired, (ask to see others, not shown in my shop), this is a fine image in soft pencil on paper, the drawing itself 14 1/2" by 15 1/2", in a simple frame without mat, signed at lower right by California and Massachusetts listed artist DAISY MARGUERITE HUGHES (1882-1968). Hughes was born and died in Los Angeles but in between she spent much time in the Provincetown art colony on Cape Cod. Hughes exhibited widely (even at the Paris Salons) and was a member of many art associations. Her paintings of Provincetown houses and streets are quite popular at auction on the east coast, but she is also widely thought of as a Southern California artist. Apparently she traveled extensively, in this case, to Tangiers, Morocco, across from southern Spain in northwestern Africa. Evidence (surviving drawings) suggest she traveled in Europe and North Africa especially in the year 1927. This drawing is in very good condition. Note the veiled figures walking the streets. See the net for more examples of Hughes' work.
