Stella Steyn drawing in Conte pencil, Figure of a lady. The drawing is 7 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches with external dimensions of 15 by 13 inches.
Drawing is signed with monogram and comes from a collection consigned by the artists nephew which was originally sold through Garland Auctioneers.
This drawing along with other works in our collection dates from 1961 and 62 . They were part of two of the artist’s sketch books, one drawn on a visit to Holland to see an exhibition by Franz Hall which she notes on the book particularly inspired here. The second sketch book was drawn during a visit to the British museum, where she references Goya and relief plaques that where being exhibited.
