Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: Evelyn De Morgan (1855-1919)
Study of a woman's head, in profile to the right
pencil and coloured chalks on buff paper
12¾ x 8 3/8 in. (32.4 x 21.3 cm.)

Notes: VAT rate of 5% is payable on hammer price and at 17.5% on the buyer's premium.
Evelyn de Morgan studied at the Slade school, famed for its emphasis on life-drawing. Her drawings combine the sense of animated movement derived from figure study with a serene classicism which reflects the teaching of Edward J. Poynter (see lot 32). De Morgan produced numerous studies for her paintings, however tantalisingly it has not been possible to identify the present drawing with a particular work.

Provenance: with J.S. Maas, London, where purchased by the present owner.

Exhibited: Springfield, 1988, no. 46.
Newhaven, 1994.
