Naive Graphite Portrait of Mrs Eli Frederick Moses, 1911

Regular price $20.00

What really does it for me on this one is the beauty mark just to the left of Mrs. Eli Frederick Moses' eye! I love the line drawn between that eye and eyebrow, too, which together with all of her jewelry and flourishes makes her feel pretty fancy. Drawing by young girls attentive to the fashions of ladies of their day seem to be finding me lately, which I love as a genre for the sort of dreamy future aspiration they represent.

11" x 6 3/4", graphite on card. There is a fold to the upper left corner but otherwise in good condition.
