Marie Guerin’s drawing notebook

 

The archives have preserved one of Marie Guerin’s drawing notebooks in the same format at Therese's, which can be seen here.

 

It begins with an amusing drawing of the Guerin’s dog but immediately shows a good usage of black tones.

 

The notebook began August 6th, 1884 when Marie would soon turn 14.

 

It finishes later than Celine's, revealing techniques that the latter had not used.

 

It reveals to us a very gifted cousin who goes in depth with her finished drawings and uses color well.
