Description

Description: We offer an original pastel portrait of an unknown child. The piece is on card stock measuring 16” x 11 ¾” and housed in a 19” x 14 ¾” period frame with a painted faux-bois finish. The drawing is well proportioned with exquisite clarity to the facial features; light seems to emanate from the young child’s round face. This piece is rendered in a muted, but handsome, palette of brown, black, white, green and blue. Item #FA00197.

Condition: The piece is housed in its original frame with minor chipping around the perimeter. There is a light 1/2" dampstain along the bottom margin, otherwise it is in good condition with the pastel retaining excellent color.
