About the Item

A beautiful pastel portrait by American female modern artist Franc Root McCreery Franc Root McCreery (1888-1957) Born: Dodge City, Kansas, US Franc Root McCreery, who was born in Salamanca, New York in 1908, was a painter and illustrator who specialized in portraits. She was an instructor at the Buffalo School of Fine Arts (Albright Art School) and at the University of Buffalo in 1921.

  • L V Guirand de Scevola (1871-1950) Portrait of a young woman, 1928, oval pastel
    By Lucien-Victor Guirand de Scévola
    Located in Paris, FR
    Lucien-Victor Guirand de Scevola (1871-1950) Portrait of a young woman Pastel on paper 38 x 28 cm (oval) Framed under glass in a vintage framing : 45 x 35 cm A label on the back "1928 Portrait de femme Etude au pastel de Guirand de Scévola" (see photographs please) This pastel study is of course not signed, as the label on the back of the frame gives its attribution to Guirand de Scévola and, equally interestingly, the date 1928, but in fact the artist's style and execution are immediately recognisable without the need for a signature. This type of woman with a bun is typical of the models the artist loved. Her mysterious air recalls his Symbolist period, and pastel is hisr preferred medium because it lends itself to all the characteristics typical of his art. Lucien-Victor Guirand de Scévola ( 1871 – 1950) was a French painter. He was student of Fernand Cormon and Pierre Dupuis...
