I bought this as part of a portfolio of sketches by an obviously talented artist, but don't know the artist's name. These might be studio sketches as exercises, or preparation sketches for paintings. At any rate, the talent is there: check out the foreshortening and details of the man's leg - very difficult to accomplish. The page is rough, with a missing bit and some marks, but I think that gives it a nice antique look. Can be easily trimmed to remove the missing corner or to resize for a standard-sized ready-made frame.
