"Seated Man, Two Positions", Drawing of Half-Nude Male Figure by Ulen, 1930s
By Paul Ulen
Located in Philadelphia, PA
Beautifully and sensitively drawn by Paul Ulen, this single sheet includes two images of a half-nude male figure, seated and reclining, wearing loose worker pants and sporting a fashionable 1930s haircut. In each case, the figure's strong, muscular body is expressed in tones of light and shadow, confidently drawn in pencil. The gridded background suggests that the figures were studies for a larger wall mural, and indeed, a major mural-esque painting by Ulen, "Bricklayer at Rest," perhaps depicting the same model, is also available from Renaissance Man Antiques...

"Memory of Leaves, " Charcoal on Paper, 2022
By Bruno Surdo
Located in Chicago, IL
Chicago-based fine art painter Bruno A. Surdo is classically trained in drawing and oil painting in the tradition of Renaissance masters. With strong command of the human form, Surdo creates dynamic compositions of people and places that communicate a rich commentary on the world around him. Depicting trees from personal encounters, Surdo’s latest body of work entitled “Tree Spirits” takes us on a foray into the forest, where leaves, branches and burls express something deeply personal. Applying his mastery of figurative realism to the natural world, he experiments with form and texture to uncover the intangible spirits of trees. This charcoal drawing entitled “Memory of Leaves” beautifully illustrates the branching form of a mature birch tree. Loosely drawn with informal, sketch-like linework, the tree is shown in the middle of winter, bare of leaves and white with frost. Surdo’s skillful placement of shadow illustrates the forking branches with incredible texture and effortless realism. The intricate play of light and dark is accentuated by the stark white background, a negative space that isolates the tree in space and time. Restricting the composition to only a portion of the tree trunk, Surdo accentuates the tree’s abstract form, lingering on areas of unusual shape or texture. Seeking to convey the strong emotional response elicited by his initial encounter with the tree, Surdo focuses on the tree’s sculptural form, contrasting the strong trunk...
