    Description

    Kelly Freas - Canvas Confidential "Odalisque en Grisaille" Original Illustration (Dial Press, 1963). An amusing "behind the scenes" look at what might have happened during the painting of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres's classic painting "Odalisque en Grisaille," (a monochrome retread of his more famous "Grand Odalisque," 1814) with the arteest sporting a nice shiner for an obvious indiscretion. The image of JADI is based directly on "Ingres as a Young Man," an early self-portrait of the artist, and Freas makes the most of his classical subjects. The painting measures 8.5" x 7" and is in Excellent condition. Also included are two photographic references for the paintings, and a pencil prelim on tracing paper, with several elements having been taped together.
