Item Sold


William Robert Hay - Original Early 20th Century Graphite Drawing. Signed lower right. Signed. Very minor light foxing to left side.

Born in Glasgow, Hay trained as an artist at the Westminster School of Art in London and spent most of his career in the capital, retaining a studio in Chelsea. Although perhaps better known as an engraver, Hay was also a highly-skilled draughtsman and painter and exhibited his work at the Royal Academy between 1911 and 1923. He also had works included in exhibitions outside London in various regional and provincial galleries, most notably at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.


12.7 x 15.4cm (5" x 6.1")

Collection Information

Part of a series of very fine life drawings by William Robert Hay (1886-1964). The series forms a penetrating and candid, yet tender, study of Hay’s sitters, each sheet focusing closely on one solitary human figure with little or no hint of a contextualising background or narrative, but done in a way that shows the artist’s great sensitivity and empathy towards his subjects. Most are signed.
