Item #38517 Fine original charcoal portrait drawing of Verdi, ?ca. 1895-1900. Giuseppe VERDI.

Fine original charcoal portrait drawing of Verdi, ?ca. 1895-1900

An accomplished head-and-shoulders drawing of the composer as an older man. 327 x 235 mm. On wove paper. Unsigned.

The unknown artist sensitively captures Verdi in a pensive mood, his head is turned slightly left,

Some small edge tears and pin holes to lower corners; slightly foxed; faint lines at edges where previously framed. In very good condition overall.

A very well-executed drawing, possibly made from life.

Not in Gatti: Verdi nelle Immagini or Weaver: Verdi: A Documentary Study. We have been unable to locate any other image on which the present drawing would appear to have been based.
