A stunningly rendered profile view of a man's head by famous Polish-born artist Josef Presser, whose works you might well have seen in America's major museums (as well as in European collections). This pastel is far more detailed and carefully modeled than his usual sketches. He obviously loved the character and and terrain of this finely-formed head! Drawing itself is 15" x 14", framed dimensions 23" x 21" (comes framed).
