Robert Luard Selby (1800-1880) - 19th Century Graphite Drawing, Dutch Peasant
DescriptionA finely drawn graphite study of a portly lady sitting on a bench in the style of David Teniers the Younger. She holds a large jug and wears ragged clothing, with an unusual hat. The draughtsmanship is very fine, with great attention given to the facial features. Very well presented in a rosewood frame and double card mount. Signed with the initial 'R' to the left side. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and very minor foxing. Minor marks to the frame.
