George Charlton (1899 - 1979)

Female Nude Study Sleeping

Drawing of a sleeping nude model on a couch. Charlton has captured her relaxed posture and closed eyes. The figures legs are crossed while she leans into the corner of the couch. Charlton rarely add much detail to his nude studies.  In this study he has added created more of a setting. Perhaps he did not want to wake his model up from her nap. The model could be his wife and fellow artist Daphne Charlton as she is comforable enough to sleep in front of him.
