Richard HEINRICH Grid Drawing Goldleaf This goldleaf and paintstick drawing by Richard Heinrich is entitled "Black and Gold, Four". Much of sculptor Richard Heinrich's work is based on a theme-and-variations akin to the musical structure in Bach or bebop. In his extensive series of grid drawings, Heinrich experiments with subtle weightings and repetitions of the essential structural elements. To put down the sharp, gold lines, the artist devised his own tool. To learn more about the artist and his techniques, visit Richard Heinrich in his Tribeca (NYC) studio., Please email or phone for more information on the artist. Richard Heinrich is represented in collections including: PepsiCo, Grounds for Sculpture, New York Public Library and Chemical Bank. 
Jules PASCIN Nude Drawing "Marie-Jeanne" "Marie-Jeanne" is typical of French artist Jules Pascin's (1885-1930) bordello nudes. The drawing is signed lower right: "Jules Pascin" and stamped upper right: "Atelier Pascin". The provenance of the drawing is Pascin's long-time Parisian dealer Lucy Krogh and it dates from 1922. The drawing--while not dark--is darker than it appears in the photo. The condition is good except for three foxing stains which are visible in the photograph. Please email: webmaster @biddingtons.com for photos of the signature and stamp. Buyer pays shipping and insurance.
