George Charlton (1899 - 1979)

Female Nude Study Legs Tucked

This drawing is unique to the Charlton collection of nudes as it is on very light blue paper.  Most of the works by Charlton in the museum collection are on a cream coloured paper.  The image features a nude model in a twisting position with her feet tuck behind her and an arm resting against her chest. Her face is incopmlete which suggests that Charlton was focusing primarily on the pose or that it was completed quickly.
