A PAIR of ink sketch drawings, one fully signed, the subject female nudes, executed in brown ink, measuring 10" by 6" (18" by 14" nicely framed in gold), the smaller work, (4 1/4" by 3 1/2", and 12" by 11" framed) a black ink sketch, signed with initials, of a standing woman in full-length dress with poofy sleeves. The artist is MARCEL-LENOIR (1872-1931), born with the name Jules Oury in Montauban, southwestern France. The artist was in Paris by 1889 studying at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs and absorbing much from the Louvre and Cluny Museum collections. By the mid 1890's he was fully developed artistically, producing impressive Symbolist works in media including lithography. The Swiss artist Arnold Bocklin, Edward Burne-Jones, Puvis de Chavannes were strong influences. Paintings, drawings, graphic art and murals/frescoes are among the works produced by this talented artist, who was better known during his lifetime than he is today. Frame on larger work is in excellent condition, the frame on smaller piece has two small losses. ***INCLUDED WITH THE TWO DRAWINGS IS A CIRCA 1970 illustrated booklet on the artist and his life, published by a Galerie Marcel-Lenoir that existed at that time in Paris. Today there is a small museum in an antique, historical building, in Montricoux, in southwestern France not far from the Marcel-Lenoir birthplace, dedicated to the artist and his works.
