Untitled Drawing [Gestalt]. Robert Duncan.

Untitled Drawing [Gestalt]

np: nd. 8 1/2 x 8”, ink on paper. Undated. Signed by Duncan within the image. Provenance: from the collection of the artist Ernesto Edwards, a longtime friend of Jess and Robert Duncan, who has a section devoted to his work in An Opening of the Field (pp. 188-193). A beautiful line drawing portrait of an unknown woman. The gestalt style of the drawing is perhaps influenced by Freud, who was an important influence on Duncan. The style of portraiture is somewhat similar to his 1953 drawing “Faust Foutu” [Duncan & Wagstaff p. 31] and his 1946 work “Self Portrait with Shadow” [Ibid p. 109]. Item #21735
