For sale here is a wonderful original pencil and crayon drawing from 1928 by the German artist, A. Hubert. This drawing was acquired directly from the artist by Eric Locke, the gallery owner, in Germany, and was in his personal collection until his death in 1969, at which time it, along with many other artworks, was put in storage until now. Dr. Locke had worked in Hollywood for Ernst Lubitsch on the MGM movie "Old Heidelberg" in 1926, and had a career for many years in Hollywood, before retiring and moving on to his first love, the fine arts. This drawing is a lovely seated nude, and is signed and dated by the artist in pencil on the front. Measures 8" by 10" image area, with the frame measures 12-1/2" by 14-1/2". It was re-framed sometime in the early 1960s, and still bears Eric Locke's notes on the back. Excellent vintage condition, with some wear to the frame.
This is one of several vintage artworks that I have acquired, along with many works of graphic art, from the estate of former gallery owner Eric Locke of San Francisco. The Eric Locke Gallery was famous in it's day for championing the graphics arts by up and coming artists from around the world, and was one of only two galleries in San Francisco that sold graphic arts when it opened, the other being the world-famous Gumps. The Eric Locke gallery was open from 1955 to 1965, though all the artworks were acquired prior to 1964, when the proprietor had a stroke and was no longer able to run the business. After closing the gallery in 1965, these artworks were placed in storage until the present. Eric Locke passed away in 1969 at the age of 82. I have a fair number of photographs of old exhibition advertising, newspaper clippings and other ephemera for this gallery and a number of the artists it represented, and am willing to share this material with serious buyers who have an interest.
