Commandant, pastel on paper, signed Jan Bessell. East European School early 20th Century. Framed and glazed.
Dimensions : Frame : 422mm x 346mm x 13mm. Image : 280mm x 205mm.
Condition/Notes : Good. The pastel on paper study of the Commandant is in good condition with good colour and retention. The drawing has been executed directly to the support and signed in red in the lower rh corner. The character of the subject has been captured effectively and a warmth is breaking through the rugged exterior. An interesting portrait study which may hold many secrets. The drawing is fixed to the dark brown mount and housed in a basic wooden frame which is in good sturdy condition with usage commensurate with its age; ideally suited to the style of the drawing. Glazing clear. The backing board is original, secured by old panel pins and covered with an old sheet of brown backing paper. There are tears around the edges but fully intact. Unfortunately no descriptive script except number 12014 in pencil. An interesting early 20th Century pastel portrait study. Please view the images below :
