Offered here is this original sepia colored charcoal study sketch of the same man in different profiles by renowned American artist Harry Jackson.The charcoal was done on quality paper (there is a small circular raised mark on the paper at the top left corner representing the manufacturer of the paper, see pictures).
Harry Jackson moved to Little Italy in New York city in the mid 1950's when he did his famous "The Italian Bar" painting in 1956. He study sketched several people from the local neighborhood for his painting. This particular study sketch is signed "H. Jackson" and dated 1956. This possibly could have been a study for someone he considered being in his painting. The original painting doesn't have this person in it though. Possibly this study could have been for another painting that he was working on at the time.
Harry Jackson passed on in 2011 at the age of 87. He was from Cody, Wyoming. He was friends with Jackson Pollock and eventually changed his artistic genre/style from abstract to Western imagery and sculpture of which he is best known for.
The paper measures 25" wide and 18 3/4" tall. It is framed nicely and has a glass front. The frame measures 33 1/4" wide and 27 1/4" tall. The top edge of the paper has a couple of small paper loss areas see pictures). Overall a very well done sketch and framed professionally.
