Set of Four Pencil Drawings by Bernard Sleigh, RBSA (circa 1900 - 1920)
Set of four framed pencil drawings on wove paper (circa 1900-1920), by Bernard Sleigh, RBSA (Provenance: from the artist's studio). An exquisite grouping of four drawings available together as one set. These sketches are possibly studies for larger works planned by the artist and are, considering their age, very well preserved. The sketches are principally drawings from the early 20th century of nudes, both men and women, executed masterfully. Newly framed and glazed. In very good vintage condition. If you prefer to acquire one of these artworks individually rather than as a set, please send an inquiry.
