Sheet of Sketches and Caricatures
Gift of Professor Walter M. and Nesta R. Spink
This sheet contains studies of fourteen figures in various stages of elaboration. Several of the figures are represented standing while gazing upward, including a man with an outstretched arm on the left edge of the sheet, a woman standing before a column near the center, and a man with a cross over his shoulder in the upper right corner. Two summarily sketched seated figures in the lower left corner appear to develop ideas for a similar figure placed at the foot of a column in a more detailed study near the middle of the sheet. In the upper left quadrant of the sheet appears a monk kneeling beneath a tree with a figure holding a staff standing behind him. Marked off by an octagonal frame along the lower edge is a seated female figure pointing upward with her right hand and holding a globe in her left.

Purchased from the Estate of Edward Sonnenschein
Loosely drawn figure studies principally seen from below and scattered across the sheet. Most of the figures are seated or stretching upwards away from the viewer. Drawing indicates a varied degree of finish; some figures seem to have been fairly carefully drawn with proper foreshortening of the figures while others are more summarily described.
