Lot 5043
This lot consists of a Hand Drawn crayon illustration on paper Hand Signed "F. Leger". A man in a brightly striped shirt stands still as a long-haired woman appears to envelop him with her arms and legs. Her embrace seems imminent, but the distant expressions on each of their faces gives the viewer pause. Perhaps they are long-separated lovers; perhaps she is merely a daydream conjured by a lonely man. This stirring, intimate image is done in the Modern Art style of Fernand Henri Leger (French, 1881-1955). Measures approximately 8" x 12".
