French School Charcoal Drawing of Classical Nude Sculpture, 1893 (Larger of Two)

Regular price $45.00

I purchased this and a second charcoal drawing from an estate sale here in Ipswich, which their prior owner purchased at a flea market it Paris many years ago. The drawings surely represent two different views of the same sculpture, this frontal view the larger of the two. Clearly it shows some staining and discoloration from a previous framing, but I of course don't mind that enhancement to its aura:)

17” x 11 3/4”, charcoal on laid paper. Flaws as noted and evident; no tears or notable creases. Signed E. Royer and dated at lower right.
