Detail photos for this Artwork
This excellent quality Robert Dickerson, dating from the 1960s, is a very fine early piece, showing the intensity of emotion and moody tones that characterise Dickerson’s earlier and very collectable charcoal pieces.
Apart from the very beautiful face of the girl, classically mysterious and dramatic, that is depicted on the front of the work, a special additional offering of this piece, is that it is doubled-sided with another signed charcoal drawing that has survived on the rear of the work.
The second charcoal is a wonderful Sydney street scene, most likely depicting the terrace houses in inner city Sydney around the Surrey Hills area where Dickerson grew up and a location that has appeared in several of his pastel, charcoal and oil works.
It is rare for such a complete double-sided work to emerge and to have survived in this way, and it has been framed and preserved so that both can be seen and we can enjoy two distinctive themes in Dickerson’s works in the one piece!
A wonderful opportunity and acquisition for any passionate admirer of Dickerson’s works, and a noteworthy and truly unique conversation piece to share.
