This is an original charcoal drawing on thick, 100% rag paper. The subject is a male portrait. The palette is monochrome charcoal over tan colored paper. The work is 23" high by 18.5" wide.
The subject is a man, neither young nor old. His features are thick and heavy with a broad nose and thick lips. His body is quarter turned from the viewer, his eyes looking back directly at the viewer. He has long, thick hair, parted in the middle and falling broadly around his shoulders. The portrait focuses on his head, positioned above center with a dark, loosely scribbled 'horizon' crossing the work behind his shoulders. Above is smudged darker. Below his shoulders, the paper is left exposed. He wears at least one necklace threaded to hold several larger objects and a suggestion of his clothing extends down the center to the bottom of the paper. The work is from the 'Native American Series' the artist did and is the only one remaining in the artist's possession (recently found at the bottom of a flat file).
The work is in pristine condition and signed by the artist.
