Figure & Landscape Studies in Ink & Graphite

Sort by

This is an interesting collection of works, in pen and ink and graphite, of varied landscape and figure subjects. Most appear to date from the late 19th century; one drawing is signed J.E. Compton 1879. A number, on watermarked laid paper, are earlier. Some drawings have additions of graphite and wash. Many are studies, examining a variety of landscape compositions and the human form in different poses. The collection includes a number of sensitively drawn portrait sketches of men, women and children, as well as rural landscapes with trees, churches, bridges and small figures.
