Series of Seven Studies by Guillaume Dulac (c. 1920s)
Set of seven sketches, studies for larger works by French artist, Guillaume Dulac (1883 - 1929). Pencil on fine paper, newly framed with glass and/or reconditioned. In good vintage condition (c. 1920s).
An exquisite grouping of seven drawings available together as one set. These sketches are studies for larger works planned by the artist and are, considering their age, very well preserved. The sketches are principally nude drawings from the early 20th century of curvaceous women executed using pencil on paper. Some are detailed and precise; others beautiful but more abstruse. There are two additional sketches - one of the Château de Bonaguil, a fortified castle built in the 13th century and another - completely different - of l'Orchestre Charles Lamoureux, Paris 1923.
This is a historical collection from an artist born in the 19th century but who died while a relatively young man and about whom very little is known. Because of the quality of his paintings, his works have been sold at auction and collected internationally. This set would enhance a corridor or hallway of your home or perhaps ideally placed along a staircase or in an office or library. Given their age, they are in very good vintage condition - some showing more blemishes and some normal wear and tear than others. All but two have been recently framed with glass and those two are in their original frames with reconditioned backing and new glass.
