Drawing By William Keith
Extremely rare & not just a sketch but a finished charcoal drawing by this landscape genius.
24" x 36" charcoal drawing mounted on white paper board, some paper & drawing missing on bottom.
I always wondered why the picture had a softness until I noticed the setting or rising moon / sun? behind the forked tree limb center right.
I acquired this painting from Leonard in 1975, He found items like this while performing appraisals & restoration for Bekins movers &
auction houses from 1930s to 1950s in the LA area, it was in this condition then & has remained in storage all these yrs.
