Inspired by the impressionist styles of the 18th-19th century when a clandestine class of women who lurked in the shadows, dressed/un-dressed "to soothe, to please, to entertain and to rule"... This collection of drawings were directed to illustrate and capture the spirit and vibe of the trade. Intended for a line of provocative French wines, DAMES DE LA NUIT, fulfills the purpose.
The ladies are bestowed with distinctive titles or appellations reminiscent of the wine/grape undertones. Thus, the Paramour, the Harlot, the Courtesan, the Concubine and the Chatelaine.
