Drawing by Wilhelm Kage

About

This study of nudes, an original drawing in pen and ink and wash, was completed by Kage in 1945. Though best known as one of Sweden's greatest ceramists, Wilhelm Kage (1889-1960) began as a painter, studying in Paris under Henri Matisse. When he returned to Stockholm, he became celebrated as a designer of posters, before beginning his career as a ceramist in 1917 as the artistic director of Gustavsberg, a position which he held until 1949. Nicely presented in a gilt-wood frame that measures 18.75 inches by 14.75 inches, the artwork itself measures 13.5 inches by 9 inches. Signed and dated by the artist.
