Potomania

By Jacques Couëlle

Jacques Couëlle (1902–1996), Etude Intimiste: study of the waterfall for the roofs of a villa, c.1982. Pen and coloured ink on trace, 622 × 900 mm. DMC 2061.10.

Call it ‘Potomania’ — plants and flowers above all … a column of water cascading freely on to a little pond … the column a staff both shining and singing.

— Jacques Couëlle
