ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING WITH WATERCOLOR, SIGNED
Np. ca. 1917 20. [Np. ca. 1917-20].. Pencil, with watercolor highlights and fill. Approximately 28 x 21.5 cm, on artboard, affixed to later matboard (the latter 35.5 x 25 cm). A bit dust darkened, with two small spots in the left blank portion of the sheet, otherwise very good. A charming period drawing, inscribed as a gift to his model, Hildegarde Hirsch, in the lower margin: "Rockwell To Hildegarde." Hirsch, a performer with the Ziegfeld Follies, was both Kent's model and his lover. That she may have been the model for this lively depiction of a woman in a short dress with high collar and half- sleeves, arms raised, with a tight period flapper's hat, is a good possibility.
