Alice Rothenstein. Original pencil drawing
ca. 1913. Very Good. English artist, Sir William Rothenstein (1872 - 1945), was highly regarded for his portraits of authors, royalty, and other famous persons. He was also an official war artist during both world wars and served as the Principal of the Royal College of Art between the wars. This is a lovely pencil drawing on paper of the artist's wife, Alice, that was done as a study for the double portrait of her and Eric Gill now at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The drawing is from the collection of the Rothensteins' daughter, Betty Holiday. The study measures 26.4 x 18.5 cm. In very good condition with slight aging to margins and a pencil smudge along the hem of Alice's dress, neither affecting the image. A few pencil marks on the verso, possibly by artist practicing pencil strokes. In an archival mat and protected by sheet of tissue paper. ORIG/071216.
