'Study of Male Nude' by Guillaume Dulac (circa 1920s)
'Study of Male Nude', pencil and charcoal on fine art paper, by Guillaume Dulac (circa 1920s). An artist known for his exquisite drawings - many are sketches for his larger oil paintings or other works - this piece is compelling because the artist achieves mood and depth from his use of charcoal with the pencil. The graceful lines and curves remain present in this sketch. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. This work is in fair vintage condition - although newly framed and glazed, there is a small chip on the frame's lower right hand corner. The paper does present evident blemishing - please see the accompanying photos. Given its nearly 100 years, it is notable overall for its state of preservation. Although the artwork is unsigned, our gallery holds virtually the entire remaining collection of this artist's sketches and memorabilia and therefore, its provenance is impeccable. Please closely view the accompanying photos to best appreciate its condition and beauty. Upon request a video of the artwork will be provided. A series of Dulac's sketches may be acquired from our gallery on this platform to create a set to enhance a corridor or stairway of your home or workplace.
About the Artist: Guillaume Dulac (1883 - 1929). This is a historical piece from a French artist born in the 19th century. He was a close associate of other well known artists, Charles Camoin and Albert Marquet. He exhibited his works in Paris' Salon des Indépendents in 1905, in the Salon de l'Union Artistique of Toulouse in 1908 - 1910 and had an artistic presence in the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. His last exhibit was in the Salon des Tuileries in June of 1929. In December of that same year, his body was recovered having drowned in the Seine river and is now in the famous Père-Lachaise cemetery.
