For sale here is an incredibly expressive vintage 1960s signed original pastel on paper drawing of an ethnic woman in a dramatic dancer-like pose. Exceptional quality, and in the original period frame. This drawing is done in vibrant chalk or pastel on a black paper with a nubby surface similar to fabric. Really an outstanding original vintage artwork, and signed at the bottom as shown in my photos of it outside of the frame. The signature looks like "Johnson" and possibly a date, but I can't say for sure. Measures 24-1/2" by 18" by 1-1/4" thick at outside edges of the frame. The image area measures 12-1/2" by 9". The matte is handmade composed of a board covered in a green netting type material. There is some slight wear to the outside edges of the frame, and as you can see from the back papers (which I removed) the outside of the artwork was exposed to some moisture. I removed the back papers and the artwork is entirely intact without any damage at all. Just the back papers were stained and I removed them. There is no odor or sign of any damage to the wood frame, and a new back paper would cover the minimal staining to the paper still on the back. Of course, you could always re-frame this artwork if you prefer, but I quite like the original frame job especially the custom handmade matting probably done by the artist. Excellent vintage condition as noted above and as shown in my photos - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
