Drawing

The Visitor
1885-1972, American

A very fine original drawing, sheet size 16 3/8 x 20 inches, c. 1930, signed "Grace McLean" in the lower right corner. Grace McLean studied at the Art Institute of Chicago with John Vanderpoel, H. Walcott and Lawrence Murphy, then settled in Los Angeles CA. She was most active in the 1930s, and taught at the Pasadena Academy of Fine Art and the Stickney Art School. This is a very cool drawing with a slight Regionalist, almost sculptural sensibility.
