Pencil Drawing of a Young Boy.
Inscribed on reverse with authentication by Cordelia Dobson, the artist's wife. 30cm x 24cm.
This remarkable early drawing by Dobson shows his early influence of vorticism and modernism. Probably drawn after the First World War when Dobson had yet to concentrate on sculpture. Dobson was married to Cordelia from 1918 to 1931.
During the 1920s and the early 1930s he built a reputation as an outstanding sculptor and was among the first in Britain to prefer direct carving of the material rather than modelling a maquette first.
