All the Restaurants of Napa Valley – John Donohue

Former New Yorker editor and self-taught artist John Donahue, who has famously sketched all the restaurants of Paris, New York, and London in a distinctive hand-drawn style, now turns his pen to capture Napa Valley’s most memorable eating establishments. Donohue draws in ink and from life, meaning he stands in front of a place and makes no corrections. He finishes all drawings in his signature one-color style, often embellished with one distinctive accent color taken from an awning or design element of the restaurant, and sells signed limited edition prints. Sales of his works have often benefited restaurant workers and other charities. See the collected works now on display through October 2nd in the History Gallery at the Napa Valley Museum.
