"Boxer in Triumph," Rare Ink Drawing of Male Boxer with Arms Raised, 1929

US$2,950

About

This 1929 vintage ink and inkwash drawing of a bare-chested boxer is turned away from the viewer, his gloved hands raised high as if the fight has just been won. The artist, William Littlefield, was fascinated by the male figure and produced many nude studies, but this piece is one of his most compelling and striking. Littlefield used strong lines and deep shadings to make this image unforgettable truly a step back into the 1920s! Littlefield exhibited widely in the 1930s and 1940s, and his works are in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Wadworth Atheneum in Hartford. (Dimensions include matte and frame.)
