    Description

    Oscar Cesare Views of Pompeii and Other Studies Original Preliminary Art Group of 10 (1918-1920). A rare opportunity to consider Cesare's masterful artwork in various stages of development. Most of these gems are conceptual pieces, with the artist's annotations. A few finishes and near-finishes also appear, including a sombre depiction of France's Woodrow Wilson Memorial and a grim meditation on the tolls of World War I. There is a fascinating assortment of pencil-rehearsals for a survey of the ruins of Ancient Pompeii. Graphite, ink over graphite, and watercolors on watercolor stock. Image areas, 10" x 8" to 14" x 17". Conditions range from Good to Excellent./ From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
