Catalogue Note

Solomon’s mastery as a draughtsman was particularly fine in his use of red chalk and Night Looking Upon Sleep her Beloved Child is typical of the intensely personal and visionary chalk drawings which Solomon produced during his later years. Another red chalk drawing of a very similar composition, entitled Night and her Child Sleep (Christie's, London, 18 June 2018, lot 8) was made in 1892, a year before the present drawing.
