Guy Pène Du Bois
The thoughtful girl on the sofa, WPA American Modernism Realism 1920 drawing

1920

About

A gorgeous rendition of a stylish yet thoughtful young woman with a typical 20s Bob haircut, seated on a sofa. It is an original drawing by Guy Pène du Bois, the American modernist master who probably needs no introduction. Our half length portrait dates from 1920, arguably artist's best period. By this time, he had achieved his mature style, which was characterised by stylised, rounded, almost sculptural figures. Signed at the lower right, it is also dated and dedicated to the sitter "to Sara Recivier(?) who was good enough to sit for this". Measuring 30.5 x 23.5 cm at sight, the overall framed size is 53.5 x 47cm. Works by Guy Pene du Bois are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; Boca Raton Museum of Art; Butler Institute of American Art; Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh/Carnegie; Chrysler Museum of Art; Cincinnati Art Museum; Cleveland Museum of Art; Crocker Art Museum; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Indianapolis Museum of Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Memorial Art Gallery; Memphis Brooks Museum of Art; Metropolitan Museum of Art; Montclair Art Museum, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts; Museum of Fine Arts-St. Petersburg; Museum of Fine Arts Boston; National Gallery of Art; Neuberger Museum of Art; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Rhode Island School of Design-Museum of Art; San Diego Museum of Art; Sara Roby Foundation; Smith College Museum of Art; The Columbus Museum-Georgia; The Dayton Art Institute; The Detroit Institute of Arts; The John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art; The Newark Museum; Phillips Collection, Washington DC; Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art; and Yale University Art Gallery .
