This is a pencil drawing most probably executed by an artist in his studio as a preliminary sketch for a planned painting. A young Indian man is standing beside a creek. He is dressed in a loin cloth and wears a head band with a feather and a pair of moccasins. It is difficult to determine if he is looking at something across the creek or not. Trees are sketched in on both banks. There are touches of red conte crayon along with pencil.

It appears that a name  is written in lower right but cannot be determined positively. The style would substantiate that it is the work of an accomplished artist. The drawing is matted and framed in period style using all acid-free materials and Museum UV glass.

 

Condition: A tear is in upper right corner and a crease at the lower edge of the drawing near the feet of the Indian.

Provenance: ex coll Santa Fe family
