In September 1938, Randolph Schwabe went on a sketching tour of France with his friends, the architect, Maxwell Ayrton, and Ayrton’s artist son, Tony. They based themselves in the austerely picturesque Provençal town of Sisteron, which is situated on the River Durance, in a gap between two mountain ridges. Schwabe enjoyed drawing both its dark, narrow streets and wider views of the surrounding light-filled countryside.
