Stanley Spencer original drawing/study drawn in pencil. As usual many ideas on one sheet. The main drawing which is squared off consists of resurrected figures, which look as if they are coming out of the ground; there is a smaller preliminary sketch,to lower margin, more detailed version to the one above; a smaller sketch in lower right margin again on the same theme. The Christie’s studio stamp on verso. The sheet has been professionally cleaned and minor tears and creases repaired/strengthened but the edges are still frayed and the sheet grubby where the dirt is too ingrained. Still an interesting drawing and showing a development of ideas for a larger piece.
Sheet size 550 x 390mm (21.5 x 14 inches)
