"Nude Male with Upraised Arms," Striking Midcentury Drawing by RISD Teacher



Stark and sensuous at the same time, this drawing was made by Robert Lamb in 1953, shortly after he graduated from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. Although primarily known for teaching sculpture at Cornell University and RISD, and for his highly-regarded body of work as a sculptor, Lamb also produced a range of works on paper and canvas over the last 50 years. The artist's work has been exhibited by the National Sculpture Society in New York City, the RISD Museum of Art, and Cornell University, and his sculptures are in the collection of the Hirschhorn Collection in Washington. The media are ink and crayon on illustration board.
