Richard Beer self portrait (pencil)

Richard Beer (1928-2017)

An original drawing in pencil from Richard Beer’s own personal collection we believe this to be a self portrait.

Drawn on paper, the work is unsigned. It has come from a large collection of sketches acquired from his estate sale and an auction receipt can be provided.

Beer spent many holidays travelling through southern Europe where he sketched, drew and painted landscapes, architecture and street scenes as inspiration for his etchings and paintings which he would complete on his return to his Primrose hill home and studio. He was not known for studies of people so it has been fascinating to find them among his collection of sketches.

Provenance: from the estate sale of the late Richard Beer 

Measurements: 42 x 59cm

Condition: overall vgc, some dusty marks and creases to the left of the sheet

This work has now been sold
