One of the earliest books to be published with illustrations by Dignimont was this charming collection of short prose pieces by the prolific Pierre Louÿs. Possibly a tribute to Louÿs, who had died earlier the same year, these fourteen pen pictures of young women, with titles such as Nymphe, Question sans réponse (Question without an Answer), Le balcon, and Huit heures (Eight Hours), are the perfect vehicle for Dignimont’s spare, sensitive drawings.

It would appear that most if not all the drawings are of three particular young women, drawn from life, leaving us wondering about the artist’s relationship with these particular models given how sensitively his hand has caught their distinctive features.

Quatorze images was published by Paris-based Éditions Briant-Robert in a limited numbered edition of 514 copies.
