Study of a lioness
Antique 20thC stepped oak Artist’s frame, stained and polished
Good condition
This shows, like all Feldkirchner’s animal studies, an acute understanding of the form and movements of the wild animals which were his constant subjects for around two decades. His conté crayon and pencil sketches on a beige Belgian paper are extraordinarily assured, often capturing in a single fluid outline the characteristics of the circus’s big cats, bears and monkeys. This study of a lioness epitomizes his work, creating the stance and mood of the animal with minimal elaboration.
