This is an original graphite drawing on 100% rag paper entittled 'Highlander I'. It is 10 inches high by 8 inches wide and is matted in white museum board to a framing size of 14.5 inches high by 12" wide The subject is a male portrait. The palette is monochrome on ivory colored paper.
This drawn portrait shows a man, pictured waist-high. He is apparently Scottish. Both his dress and his thick mustache, blending into as thick sideburns, indicate an historical, period portrait. The subject wears a very simple white chemise with round neck and a front slit held together with a clasp, Stitching is seen along the shoulder lines and the sleeves appear fairly wide as does the bodice, which is tucked into a wide belt with a large front plaque. His hair is shoulder length, wavy and brushed back. He sports a thick mustache and what would be a full beard, but for his chin which is clean-shaven. His body faces the viewer, his head turned to his left, his eyes focused in that direction with a slightly furrowed brow. Though created with a simple pencil, the portrait is finely rendered with great detail and delicacy.
The work is in pristine condition and signed by the artist.
