"Seated Man, Two Positions", Drawing of Half-Nude Male Figure by Ulen, 1930s
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...
