Item #30308 Pencil sketch of a seated nude figure, looking away.
(Jones, David)

Pencil sketch of a seated nude figure, looking away.

Jones, David (illus.)

(N.p,): 1927. Pencil, colored chalk, heightened with white on buff wove paper, measuring 11 by 15 inches. Signed and dated to left of sitter's foot. Additionally dated in upper right corner "11. 4. 27". As a fine artist, Jones is perhaps best-known for his landscapes and religious iconography; early in his career, particularly during his time with the Gill family in the mid-1920s, he produced portrait work, though very few of them were nudes. Jones's engagement to Petra Gill ended in 1927, the year this portrait was completed, and her physical attributes—long neck and high forehead—subsequently became an archetype for Jones's female forms in his art. Similar nude studies by Jones are held at the Tate and the Derek Williams Trust. Adhesive residue and remainder of cloth adhesive tabs to rear, else fine. Framed. Item #30308
