Monique Jorgensen (Early 20th Century)

Monique Jörgensen was a French artist of Danish descent who worked in Paris in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. She became very well known for her exquisitely detailed watercolors and oils of Parisian buildings, painted with a quiet palette and a dazzling technique that led the critic René Jourdain to compare her work with that of Chardin and Vermeer. Her “portraits” of buildings, he said, were marked by a singular gravity which made the houses as moving as faces.

Jörgensen published two albums of her paintings of historic buildings in Paris, both with prefaces by J. L. Vaudoyer.

She exhibited at the Galerie L’Arc-En-Ciel on the rue de Sèvres in Paris.
