Measuring 13 3/8" by 16 3/8" (sight size), this compilation of figures includes nude bodies, torsos, some in framed sections at the top, and is done in charcoal on heavy drawing paper. From a collection of drawings and paintings by Joseph Delaney (African-American 1904-1991), this image is unsigned, but guaranteed to be an original Delaney. Matted and framed (24' by 26").
Brother of Beauford Delaney, Joseph moved to New York City in 1930, where he studied, painted, and spent most of his artistic career. His works are highly desirable, and values at auction have risen significantly in recent years. Please see out other listings for more drawings by Delaney and a large oil of a nude woman.
