Preparatory drawing for the 'Dragonflies and Ferns' necklace
ink, pencil and gouache on tracing paper
the drawing : 28 x 22 cm ; 11 x 8 ¾ in.
Good overall condition. The drawing has been examined unframed. It has been laid down on cardboard. It bears a written number 49 on the lower left corner, and an old label on the back. The paper was glued on the back and was absorbed by the paper leaving large traces approximately 5 and 7 cm on the drawing. There is a large tear of 6 cm on the lower edge and the other one on the upper left corner, consistent with normal age.
