Robert Luard Selby (1800-1880) - 19th Century Graphite Drawing, Man with Pipe



A finely drawn graphite study of a Dutch peasant smoking a pipe in the style of David Teniers the Younger. He sits on a small wooden stool and wears ragged clothing. The draughtsmanship is very fine, with great attention given to the facial features. Very well presented in a rosewood frame and double card mount. Printed information on the artist and a scan of the label hidden beneath the frame is included to the reverse. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing. Minor marks to the frame. Left hand side of inner frame is missing.


12 x 9cm (4.7" x 3.5")
