Grand Theater Drawing by Dolores Puthold, France, 1987


A grand drawing in charcoal and pastel on paper, mounted on board, in original frame, by the famed artist, Dolores Puthold. A frequent painter of the performing arts, and labeled with La Salle Gerard Philipe, this is likely a preparatory work for a painting depicting a performance at this theater. The piece was acquired from a collector in Lyon, France. Puthold, born in 1934 in Milan, was a member of La Scala and collaborated with Picasso, Nikolai Benois, and Alberto Savinio, and is the subject of a 2014 film. Signed and dated by the artist, May 25, 1987.
