Sandra Sweeney
'Self Portrait' original pastel and graphite drawing signed by Sandra Sweeney

1976

$1,650

About

Following in line with artists before her, like Rembrandt and van Gogh, Sandra Sweeny here presents a self portrait. The image is direct but subtle in its handling of materials, but also in the frank gaze of the artist. She looks directly at the viewer, confronting them with an expressionless face. The modeling of the portrait is built up with a limited palette of black, blue, yellow, and red ochre, unifying the image. 14 x 10.63 inches, artwork 23.5 x 19 inches, frame Signed in pencil, lower center Dated 'September 76' in pencil, lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag silk-lined matting, a gold fillet, and housed in a gold cassetta-style wood moulding. Though she and her family spent a few years in Oregon, Sandy was based in Milwaukee, WI. Along with being a talented artist, she was a superb framer and worked as the head framer for the David Barnett Gallery in Milwaukee, WI.
