A pencil and graphite drawing of an Army Officer, otherwise unidentified and unsigned. c1890. The drawing is in good condition and very detailed. There is no damage to the paper but there is quite a lot of foxing in the blank area surrounding the image. The ebonized wooden frame is in good condition except for a few small chips on the edges. The back of the frame is raised 10mm above the actual frame and has been sealed with Kraft paper. At some time the lower rh quarter has been cut open presumably in search of some identification or script on the back of the drawing but I can confirm that there is no script. I have temporarily resealed the backing paper with gummed tape. This is a very interesting work which would benefit from identification. Any future indications will be noted.
