This is a drawing in ink, 16 3/4" by 12 1/2" (25 1/2" by 21" in its old stained oak frame), signed at lower right by important 19th century English artist Frederick (Fred) Morgan (1856-1927). Morgan is a familiar name at major auctions of British art, where his sentimental genre paintings of little girls and their St. Bernard type dogs, in idyllic landscapes, bring to the half million dollar range. This work is an atypical work, perhaps an early one. I imagine the figure depicted was someone important in politics in England's Victorian period----I'd welcome anyone's input as to the identity of this individual. Condition is excellent, with only some inconsequential foxing especially at top----very, very faint and minor. The oak frame has some light wear but it could be easily sanded and re-stained. Allow for some reflections in glass and false yellowish colors in photos. .
