Attrib. James Stark (1794-1859) - c.1820 Graphite Drawing, Two Studies of Cattle



Two delicate studies of cattle in graphite, attributed to the English landscape painter James Stark (1794-1859). With delicate lines and adept use of shading, these studies were most likely completed in preparation for a larger landscape work. The significant experience and proficiency of the artist is clear in the anatomical realism and excellent proportions. Both studies are mounted together in a double card mount, as shown. Unsigned. On wove.


In good condition overall, commensurate with its age. Some surface marks and scuffing to the corners of the mount, as shown.
