“The charming "Suburbs Outside Paris" like most of the artist's work, is small in scale. It displays her characteristically broad, yet delicate handling of paint, her distinctive colouring and her interest in synthesising the various spatial depths of field so that the image works coherently on the picture plane.”

“... a small fresh and delightful example of abstract expressionism and softly vivid colour. It has no details or perspective.”
