Description

A YOUNG GIRL SITTING ON A ROCK Indistinctly signed and dated (?1933) Terracotta 30 cm (11 3/4 in) Provenance: The Elsie March Studio sale, Christies, 2 August1982 Elsie March excelled at this type of fresh, lively study of female figures. Her sculpture has a spontaneity and individuality which equally characterise her paintings, mainly done in watercolour, (see Sydney March, lot 100 in this sale.) This terracotta figure has all the feeling of a personal invention, but the composition has clear affinities with William Reid Dick's statuette The Kelpie. (See plate on facing page).
