One of dozens of drawings by this artist that I recently acquired, (ask to see others, many not yet added to my shop), this is a fine image in charcoal with some faint red color added, executed on thin, inexpensive slightly browned paper, 12" by 17", unframed, signed at lower right, undated but likely late 1950's, by the California and Massachusetts listed artist DAISY MARGUERITE HUGHES (1882-1968). Hughes was born and died in Los Angeles but in between she spent much time in the Provincetown art colony on Cape Cod. Considering the subject matter of this drawing, and in light of very similar known oil paintings by her hand, I would think it likely that this is a scene somewhere on the Cape, most likely the rooftops of Provincetown. Hughes exhibited widely (even at the Paris Salons) and was a member of many art associations. Her paintings of Provincetown houses and streets are quite popular at auction on the east coast, but she is also widely thought of as a Southern California artist. During the late 1920's she sketched in Europe and North Africa, as well. This drawing is in acceptably good condition, with a central fold and paper crinkling, but, it is a sketch and was never intended as a finished work. This drawing and a few others from this hoard have a sticker on the back with apparent reference numbers. See the net for more examples of Hughes' work.
