1858 Graphite Form and Shading Studies, Sold Individually

Regular price $48.00


These formal drawings are dated 1858 (I can't quite read the signature), and seem to me just the right things to stare at what one is in the need of a bit of serenity! Finely executed in graphite on substantial weight drawing paper, all about form and shade achieved through density of line. There's a fifth (labelled E) done by the same person but more about ornament; included in photos. All lovely.

A-D drawings: paper is 10 7/8" tall. Cones and sphere 8 11/16" wide; square 10 1/8" wide. Triangle with ornament: 15 1/8" x 11 3/4.

All in very good antique condition with a minor smudge or two here and there.  Price is per drawing. Please add 1 or more to your cart then indicate the letter/s (A-E) of the one/s you would like in the notes field at checkout.
