Elizabeth Armstrong (Forbes)

Study of a seated woman, silverpoint drawing. 18ins x 12ins
This is a variation of the study illustrated on page 152 of 'Singing from the Walls' (by Melissa Hardie) titled 'Girl on a Window Seat'.
Reverend John Halkes has informed us that several works on paper by Forbes came into the Newlyn Art Gallery in 1981. The collection came from the Armstrong family (a second cousin).
Silverpoint is a drawing technique that was extensively used during the Renaissance both as underdrawing in panel painting and as a medium for fine drawings. Fine drawings, particularly, were done on white or tinted grounds and were commonly highlighted with white watercolour applied with a brush. To this day, silverpoint, or metalpoint as it is also know, remains a traditional but seldom used artistís technique for fine drawings..Essentially, the technique is based on coated paper upon which one draws with a fine silver stylus.

Medium: Silverpoint drawing on a white distempered ground - Frame: Yes - Size: 18ins x 12ins - Status: SOLD
