Scope and Contents

An oblong green portfolio with a decorated title piece cut out and pasted on the cover bearing the name E. Cazes. The portfolio contains forty-eight original pencil drawings on translucent or white paper by J. E. Cazes of Vincennes, France. In addition to the drawings are five printed illustrations. The pencil drawings range from 4 x 6 inches to 13 1/2 x 35 1/2 inches. A detailed two-point perspective architectural elevation of a building in Casablanca, Morocco, is signed by Cazes and dated 1918 (Map Drawer 51). Three additional building elevations are in the portfolio. Drawings of interiors include two elaborately drawn rooms, one labeled "chambre & coucher Louis XV pour Madame Auday" and the other signed Casablanca 1918, and three interior decorative wall elevations. Eight drawings of furniture include armoires, chairs, and a bed, and Cazes utilized perspective drawing in some of these illustrations. Decorative lighting, especially chandeliers, are prominent in Cazes works which include seventeen detailed drawings of various decorative light fixtures. Fourteen drawings of interior architectural elements and ornaments are also part of the collection. Lastly, two of the printed illustrations are of chandeliers. One print is a copy of a program signed by Cazes for a performance of "Domino noir," an opera performed at Ville de Casablanca, 19 Mai 1918.
