DRAWING, POSSIBLY FOR USE AS A SET DESIGN, INCORPORATING SOME OF NIELSEN'S FINEST ARTISTIC TALENTS
Price: 8,500.00 USD
(: n.p., n.d.), A RARELY ENCOUNTERED DRAWING BY ONE OF THE FOREMOST ILLUSTRATORS OF THE EARLY PART OF THE 20TH CENTURY. The Nielsen drawing is quite an interesting piece. It seems possible that it might have been intended for use as a set design, but it is also a rather accomplished drawing which has very finished elements such as the figure at the far left and the figure facing. These incorporate Nielsen's best traits as an artist. The figure to the far right seems also to have a wash applied as the artist might have done while beginning his water colour work. A working figure underlies one of the finished ones, and the drawing is signed by Nielsen at the bottom of the plate. Signed by Nielsen at the foot of the drawing. 370 x 265 mm (the image 280 x190 mm), the drawing is matted and protected in a plastic sleeve. Well preserved with little evidence of age and no damage to the drawing surface.
