BILL ROBINSON

Bacon, Peggy. BILL ROBINSON (BOJANGLES). Charcoal on paper, not dated, but c. 1935. Signed and titled. 14 x 9 5/8 inches. Small losses and tears at the edges of the sheet, well away from the image, otherwise in very good condition. A sensitively executed portrait drawing of the famous dancer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, at the peak of his career, showing him in jacket and tie, in three-quarter face. A similar drawing, full face, in apparently the same dress, is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
