Self-portrait - CHUBB, Ralph - 1919. 
- An original pencil drawing by the artist signed and dated November, 1919. Chubb (1892 -1960) produced a number of highly original artworks in his life, as well as a series of printed books that espoused his eccentric personal mythology, one that was anti-materialist and sexually revolutionary. Influenced by Whitman, Blake and the Romantics, his work was a prophetic expression of homoeroticism that was deeply personal.This detailed work is the earliest self-portrait of which we are aware. Chubb was invalided out of the Army after World War I after a bout of "neurasthenia" and began studies at the Slade School of Art in 1919, the same year this work was created.Very good, mounted and framed, the sketch measures 9" x 13". Signed lower right, "R.N. Chubb/Nov. 1919"). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
