Meg Azzoni Watercolors and Architecture

The Rose Room in the New York Public Library

The Rose Room in the New York Public Library

MEG AZZONI,  a long-time WSOAE exhibitor, is widely known for her watercolors which are bright, cheerful and frequently quaint; but a further aspect of her work is that she is a licensed architect and an honors graduate of the Princeton University architectural program. Some of that background is showing up in her current work including  drawings of facades and paintings of significant architectural interiors. Shown above and below are a recent painting of the Rose Reading Room in the New York Public Library and a reworked drawing of the extraordinary façade of the Elizabethan era Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire England. An essay written about the hall by Ms. Azzoni  can be accessed at http://home.earthlink.net/~fine4art/news20.jpg, her newsletter site. See also www.megazzoni.com .
