Simply put, the French Connection® consists of a pair of lightweight and compact clamping devices that attach to either side of any French Box Easel drawer to provide additional working space for the artist.  It will support a palette, water container, arrays of pastels, and any other common painting paraphernalia that are awkward to hold or to balance on the small drawer of a typical easel.

Moreover, the French Connection® clamps will attach to many other types of painting boxes, easels and tables to provide additional space for arranging one's painting supplies in the studio or in the field. The versatility of the French Connection® is unparalleled.
