Crayon drawing of two nude females, 13 1/2" by 9 1/2" inside the mat, 20" by 16" framed, bearing at lower right the stamped atelier signature of the important French artist ACHILLE-EMILE OTHON FRIESZ (1879-1949). On the reverse, a modern label gives the title as "Nude with Veil". Friesz was born in Le Havre to a family of shipbuilders and sea captains. He was educated there and went to Paris after the turn of the century, with his lifelong friend Raoul Dufy (see print by the latter in my shop). In Paris he fell in with the avant-garde crowd, befriending Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet and Georges Rouault, who were rebelling against academic teaching. Friesz exhibited with the Fauves in 1907. At least one of his works from this period has exceeded $2 million at auction, and a number have exceeded $200,000. This drawing is beautifully executed and is in excellent condition. The atelier stamp has been applied twice, at lower right, the lower one less bold. The crayons used are varying shades of brown, creating an interesting interplay of line. See the net for much more on the work of this artist.
