Marion Adnams (1898 - 1995):
Study of two Staffordshire Dogs, circa 1930
Unmounted (ref: 10259)
Pencil across two sheets of paper 15 x 16.1 in. (38 x 41 cm)
Provenance: The Artist's Estate
In 1930 Adnams started attending life classes at Derby School of Art. Her extra ordinary facility for drawing was much remarked upon, (one teacher remarking that she 'drew like a man, direct with no rubbing out, quoted by Ray Gosling, Marion Adnams, A Retrospective, Midland Group Gallery 1971).
The Staffordshire Dogs featured in this pencil drawing were from Adnams own collection.
