"Fisherman with Pipe, Provincetown" by Karl Knaths, Amer., (1891-1971)
Regular price $850
Ink Marker Drawing, ca. 1960's, 7-13/16 x 5, signed in red ballpoint pen recto, and twice with the oval ink estate stamp verso, on cream wove paper. This forcefully rendered portrait displays Knaths' candid appraisal of character and confident modernist brevity of means to express it. The result is a striking portrait full of life, with a stoic countenance reflecting a lifetime of hard work. One of Knaths' great Provincetown themes.
