Description

    Charles Gates Sheldon (1889-1960) Original Illustration (1920-1925). An exquisite art deco image of the famous ballerina Hilda Butsova expertly rendered by Charles Sheldon. This was most likely published as a cover for one of the entertainment magazines of the period. Executed in charcoal on board, and measuring 28 x 22, it is signed lower right. Also included with this lot are 15 photos of the model from Sheldon's personal photo reference library. There are some breaks to the board but, with the exception of one in the upper left area (across the ballerina's name), they are confined to the outer edges. Some water staining is evident in the lower part of the illustration but does not detract from, or affect, the central image.
