Alec Wiles (1924-2021) - Mid 20th Century Sanguine, Contemplation



A delicate sanguine head study of a woman with her chin rested in her hand, deep in thought. The artist has signed to the lower edge and the drawing has been presented in a gilt frame with card mount. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and light foxing. The frame and mount are in fine condition.
