DPP 055 André Derain. Sketches

 

A sheet of sketches is typical of André Derain’s graphic works of the 1920s. This piece forcefully demonstrates his quests in developing plastic and stylistic solutions of the female image. Despite the fact that Derain’s works are in the world’s major museums and come up at major auction sales, they are very rare on the Russian market.
