Nubia: Sketches, Notes, and Photographs
From the 1930s, Margo Veillon had been fascinated by the vibrancy, color, and movement of the life of ordinary people in Nubia. In the company of friends and fellow artists she made numerous extended visits to capture in her drawings, sketches, and paintings a lifestyle that has now vanished. This book is a record of her journeys. In it she presents the movement and color of the lives of ordinary people with an incomparable richness and sensitivity. Using the Nile as the thoroughfare through this beautiful land, her sketches, photographs, and drawings interpret the impact of this world upon her.
