Augustus John (1878-1961)

Standing female nude.

Light green conte crayon on paper, 19.5 x 10.5" signed.

Condition: Long ago torn in 8 pieces, then restored, nevertheless the joins are very visible; handsomely matted and framed.

The light conté is barely visible against the yellowed paper. The second image is photoshopped to bring out the design; it is NOT accurate, color-wise.

Provenance: The backing board bears a label from the Far Gallery, New York.

The artist apparently tore the drawing up and discarded it, though he signed it when it was retrieved from the bin.
