Tender. Poetic. Charming. This drawing of a child's shoe speaks to the beauty that can be found in commonplace, often overlooked, everyday objects. Its folds, highlights and shadows are lovingly rendered in pencil and charcoal, which contrasts beautifully with the 19th-century American gilt frame. This work is from a still life series that dates from the 1870's, the artist is unknown. It would make a quiet yet impactful statement on its own or look lovely grouped with the other pieces from this collection.
This artwork was originally signed (though the artist's name is difficult to read) and dated (1878). The signature was partially torn so we've added it to the back of the piece where it's secured in a plastic sleeve. This authentic gilt frame has nicks and scratches, which are part of its inherent beauty. Please see our detailed photos.
