This is a large and rare charcoal drawing by Arthur Burdett Frost 1851-1928. It is titled Point of Honor. On the margin of the drawing are the words Point of Honor. Godie stood in rapt attention listening to the famous orators his imagination had brought there.I presume this is a story illustration for one of the many articles Frost did during a long and prolific carrier.He did tons of work for Harper's Weekly and was famous for his sporting and hunting images.There are a lot of listings for his drawings but I could only find a couple done in charcoal which is much harder to work with than water color or pencil.This is a large 17 by 21 inch drawing. It is on a thin newsprint type paper and has been backed with a rice paper.There were 2 tears to the paper at the bottom left that are not very visible know that the paper has been backed. Other wise this is in great condition with the paper retaining its whiteness.This image was originally sold at Christies New York in 1993 for around $1200.00. it is currently framed in a museum matt and glass. A opportunity to own a really nice image by this well known illustrator!
