Pencil drawing on paper, 4 1/4" square inside the mat, 9 1/4" by 9 1/4" as framed, signed at lower right "Luce", the subject an elderly man at left and elderly woman at right, both reading a letter or periodical. The paper is browned with age, though, evenly, and there's a small crown-shaped stain that looks like an ink blot, irregularly shaped, at lower right. The work is affixed to a board on which is written in old hand "No. 20". The mat, with its hand-drawn border, seems to be glued down around the drawing. MAXIMILIEN LUCE (1858-1941) was a prolific French artist, often called a "second-tier" impressionist, Pointillist, or Neo-Impressionist. He worked in many media, and works have sold for decades at auctions around the world. Drawings can be had for modest sums, while a number of paintings have exceeded one million dollars, and recently one sold for over $4,000,000, establishing a record for the artist. Luce was friendly with artists like Pissarro, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Louis Valtat, and Theo van Rysselberghe. Here is an opportunity to own a piece that was created by an artist at the heart of artistic creation in late 19th century Europe. **ALLOW FOR REFLECTIONS IN SOME IMAGES*** See the net for much, much more information on this artist and his works.
