Original Antique Drawing by Poul Steffensen (1866-1923), Signed and dated 1904

The drawing has been executed in a realistic style reflecting the classic academy tradition. It is characterized by the careful light and shade producing a convincing illusion of three-dimensional volume of the figures and also the skilful and highly detailed depiction of various fabrics and materials. This is a very stylized letter E.

This is executed in pencil, pen and watercolor.

Dated 1904.

Condition: Very Good Condition but with slight yellowing of the paper.

The drawing has A4 format.

The drawing is unframed.

He was a pupil of C.N Overgaard, studied at the Royal Art Academy in 1887 where he was a pupil of F. Vermehren, Julius Exner and Carl Bloch. Steffensen worked primarily with landscapes and animal scenes. He is best known for his series of realistic and detailed landscapes with cattle or horses.
