UNTITLED (Illustration depicting 18th Century construction scene)

(Solon, Leon V.). UNTITLED (Illustration depicting 18th Century construction scene); Pastel drawing; 13 7/8" x 10 3/4"; Signed. The drawing is on a larger sheet, with a border painted around it in black. Margins soiled and spotted with traces of glue. Drawing in excellent condition. Leon V. Solon (1872-??), English. A ceramicist, painter, illustrator and writer, he executed architectural decorations for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He was the artistic director for Minton between 1897-1909, and worked in a style with affinities to Mucha. The present work, which shows workers doing exterior finish on a house, appears to be either the original art work for an illustration, or a maquette for a mural.
