Vintage Original Painting Impressionist Modern Male Nude Portrait California

Original vintage painting, pencil drawing, on paper of a nude man, framed in a simple plexiglass frame.

The man sits, looking indirectly forward, his body shadowed in grays, the musculature displayed clearly in his arms and back. He has thick, wavy dark hair, and a short beard and mustache. He looks peaceful and thoughtful. The background is shaded in red.

Frame measurements: 16" Width x 20" Height - Extra 2.5" on sides and 1.25" on bottom of painting

The artist, George Farrell (93, died 10-21-2013), was from Modesto, California. He was an art lover and collector, and an amateur artist, painting self portraits and other figures. The piece was painted in 1959 and purchased directly from the artist.

The beauty of the plexiglass frame is how it highlights the art. The painting is all you can see, without distraction.

Note: Wear to cardboard backing in frame. Scratches on plexiglass. Possible fading to original paper. Overall very good condition. Exact paint medium unknown - looks like gouache.
