A stunning acquisition from our recent Paris trip, this late 1800's antique charcoal drawing of a bust is dated August 1, 1890. Most likely an academic drawing, the play of stroke and shading bring this truly exquisite and expressive portrait to life. To note, the date and signature are bottom right. The beautiful handmaid laid paper ( 4 visible deckled edges) is classic of the historic French Ingres D''Arches paper mill, so you will note the watermark "MBM" on the paper (hidden under mat).
