Outstanding "Original drawing for "The Spring" and etching by well listed American artist George Timothy Tobin (1864-1956). Stunning image of a nude woman bending over to take a drink from some imaginary spring. The drawing image measures 12 x 8 1/4 inches. The drawing is a wonderful pencil work on a thin paper that has been laid down on a thicker paper. Pencil outline. Titled and initialed in pencil lower right. Some minor staining along the bottom area and a small loss along the upper right corner. The matching etching is crisp and clean. Image measures 9 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches. Unsigned. A pencil notation "No 2" lower left corner that refers to the print number. Ready for an archival framing. A wonderful pair of work by a great artist. Would be great framed together or separate for different locations. If you collect Tobin or collect nudes, check my store for some of his other work. I have more not listed so please email me if you are interested in others.
