Pencil on watermarked paper drawing of a tall female nude, 16" by 11 1/4" inside the mat, 23 1/4" by 18 3/4" framed, signed at lower right by the artist and dated there 1933. DAME ETHEL WALKER (1861-1951) is a modern British artist of significance, known for an impressionistic and poetic style with subject matter ranging from portraits and studies of the female figure to seascapes, landscapes, still life florals, and decorative compositions featuring mythological and allegorical material. She received instruction in art at the Slade School in London, and was known to have traveled to Madrid. Walker's style can be traced to a number of different master artists of the past. Many of her works in oil are quite decorative and attractive, and they can reach into the five figures at auction. The present work should appeal to any collector of modern English art or any collector of works featuring the female body. Condition is very good with a few foxing spots on the tan paper; the "THE SAFE BANK" paper watermark is unusually prominent.
