A group of 18 unframed pencil drawings, all landscape, signed by noted Southern California artist LEONARD SCHEU (1904-1995). The drawings are titled: Bridge Amsterdam; Roman Wall Tower of London 200 AD; Amsterdam; St. Peters, Salzburg; Amsterdam; Old House Schoenwald Germany; Quebec; Bern (Switzerland); Cathedral Door Granada; Victoria (Canada). Evidently, the artist was an avid traveler. The American-looking scenes, featuring imagery of buildings and trees, are untitled, and comprise five of the 18 total drawings. Sizes range from 7 1/2" by 9 1/2" through 13 1/2" by 21", the average about 10" by 12". Most are in good condition, despite having traveled unframed, together, for quite some time. One or two have minor discoloration. Scheu was born in San Francisco before the earthquake, and lived into the mid 1990's. He received art training at the California School of Fine Arts and at the Art Students League in New York. The artist moved to Laguna Beach in 1938 and became a major fixture of the art colony there, as both exhibitor and juror for exhibitions.
