This is a beautifully executed work in charcoal, 18" by 15" (19" by 16" as framed), the subject a young girl, staring out at the viewer, likely wearing her school uniform, circa 1930's or 1940's, I am thinking. Unfortunately there is no signature. When I first saw this I thought it possible it might be by a Taos and Santa Fe master.......and I held on to it for many years, thinking I could run into another work that would unlock the mystery. That work has not come by, so, I will offer her for sale. The drawing has some digs in the paper, showing as white areas, especially at top edge but there are several others scattered around. I do not think they take seriously from the appeal of this drawing. I suppose it could be of Mexican origin as well but my hunch directs me back to New Mexico or the Navajo lands of Arizona.
