Antique (and modern) drawings are in!
A nude of absolute perfection, Venus the Goddess of beauty in all her glory.
A delicate pencil drawing, where the main character has such ethereal grace it is nearly white on white.
By her side, Cupid in a fun macho pose.
A Greek decor with symbols difficult to decipher today: a spilled jar, reeds, an ornate oar. possibly a Greek or Latin tale still famous circa 1900.
This small but amazing artwork was drawn in my opinion by a major artist, very likely in preparation for a painting or a sculpture.
This may explain the lack of signature and also the breathtaking quality of the rendering.
This divine nude will bring a totally luminous quality to any decor!

Antique (and modern) drawings are in. The trend started about 2 years ago, took off with the attraction to French Academic nude drawings, and is not showing any signs of abating. It is definitely a good time to acquire these antique pieces. Drawings make delightful transitions between paintings in a home, and reinforce the refinement of any Art collection.
