Description: We offer an exemplary sandpaper drawing titled and signed at the lower right: “Rogers Slide, Lake George by Vladislao Vasquez”.

The composition is on a 10″ x 14″ piece of heavy cardstock and framed in a period frame to: 13″ x 17″. It features an array of details on the lake, including: a rowboat with five people, a paddle wheel steam boat, and several sailboats.

These drawings were made on prepared paper that was painted with gesso and sprinkled with marble dust, lending them an eerie, glittery effect. Most often these had as their origin a print source, as does this one. “American Scenery Or, Land, Lake and River Illustrations of Transatlantic Nature” was published in London (1838-42) and contained William Bartlett’s engraving of Lake George which has most of this drawing’s elements.
