Catalogue Note

Gaston Lachaise regarded most of his drawings as independent works, not studies for various projects. Head, a drawing of a woman with heavy-lidded eyes, a slender nose, full lips, and curly hair, evokes the appearance of his wife, Isabel Dutaud Nagle (1882-1957). It belongs to a group of drawings of idealized heads of both men and women dating from the early 1930s in which the facial features were economically and fluently rendered and nearly fill the entire surface of the sheet.

We are grateful to Virginia Budny for her assistance in preparing the catalogue entry for this work.
