About Our Frames


This study depicts a life-drawing class with a male model as the subject. Josse presents the model from the back so the viewer has a clear view of the artist studying him in the background.

Using watercolour, charcoal and sanguine, Josse creates depth in the figures placed against a blue, asymmetric background.

On wove.


Even discolouration. Holes along the top edge from the artist's original sketchbook.
