"Standing Male Nude," Pencil Drawing by Littlefield, 1937



Powerfully expressed, with the angular stylization characteristic of Art Deco decorative art, this pencil drawing was executed in 1937 by William Littlefield. The artist was fascinated by the male figure and produced scenes of boxers and mythological scenes that showcased the nude. 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. This drawing retains its original walnut frame.
