This is a scarce drawing by noted American artist CHARLES VEZIN; most known works are oils. This example, measuring 16 3/4" by 13 3/8" (sheet, unframed) does not photograph impressively, as it lacks color and appears faint to the camera, but, it is a complete and powerful work of art, the subject the famous Flatiron Building in New York City. The artist started painting late in life, taking his first art lesson at the age of 41. Studying at the Art Students League with the likes of William Merritt Chase, John Twachtman and Frank Du Mond however brought him quickly up to speed. He exhibited with a number of groups including the Salmagundi Club (of which he went on to become the president, between 1911 and 1915), the Old Lyme Art Association in Connecticut, and elsewhere. Today his views of New York City and the surrounding Hudson River Palisades in winter are prized by collectors. This work is unframed, on white paper. It is in excellent condition with just tiny soiling and is presently affixed with clear Scotch tape at one corner to the board. Once framed in silvery gilt, this will be a sure winner for the New York collector. Note the circa 1930s style automobiles at lower left.
