[Collection of Drawings]
Price: 175.00 GBP
[c. 1924]. A collection of twenty four hand drawn illustrations plus one only partially completed, mostly monochrome pen and ink, two in pencil and one in pencil and water-colour. The illustrations are of varying sizes between 11 x 8.5 cm and 27 x 21 cm, each drawn on paper backed with thick card. Occasional light marks, one with a rust stain from a paper clip, otherwise generally in very good condition. Dowsett would appear to be a gifted amateur, as there appears to be no other trace of their work. One of the illustrations is dated 1924, a number with an address on the verso, either in Colchester or Yeovil. The style of the drawings are very much of the period and mostly are in a cartoon like style, certainly in tone. Two illustrations feature golf, another a biplane, while the other drawings feature more cartoon-like social scenes. The water-colour is more serious in tone and features a woman in a gold bathing costume with matching butterfly wings.
