Original three-quarter length drawing signed of an unidentified conductor by the noted French artist Abel Jules Faivre (1867-1945)

?Paris: ca? 1920.

Sheet size ca. 270 x 210 mm. Executed in black, blue, red, and white crayon and chalk on heavy tan wove paper. Signed by the artist at lower right, with a preparatory sketch (head only) in red chalk at upper right.

The conductor is depicted in formal dress with baton in hand.

Minor wear to lower right corner; slightly browned; several small pinholes to blank areas; light impression of former mat to extreme edges.

This drawing is possibly a depiction of the Russian conductor Serge Koussevitzky (1874-1951) however this attribution is debatable.

Abel Jules Faivre was a painter, illustrator, and cartoonist active in Paris in the early 20th century. He is particularly well-known for the posters he designed during World War I as well as for his portraits and caricatures.
