Description

Harold Paris pays homage to Parisian political theorist, writer, and physician Jean-Paul Marat (1743 - 1793). The imagery is gestural and simple, a series of 15 vignettes that were possibly "sketched" for a proposed series of lithographs that were never realized. During this period Paris was teaching, working on his ceramics and sculpture and many other projects.

An impression of "Sketches for Marat" was exhibited at Sixteenth National Print Exhibition / Two Decades of American Prints 1946-1968 at the Brooklyn Museum.

Another impression was exhibited on February 9, 1965 at the Hansen Gallery in San Francisco.
