Gabriel Edward Adams, Material Study (in advance of a sculpture) Charcoal

USA and New Zealand 2017

Material Study (in advance of a sculpture) is a mixed media large scale drawing, composed as a literal material study. It is completed from direct observation of a large crushed structure of steel. Often artists make such studies in small scale, as in the work of Henry Moore, but as a quick sketch in advance of moving forward with a formal work. Here the artist monumentalizes such a sketch as a finished work in itself.

Materials: cotton rag paper (fabbriano archival), charcoal, conte, chalk, and gesso.
Year: 2017

New England Tiger Maple Tall Chest, Ca. 1770

A classic example of a New England tiger maple country tall chest made in the last third of the 18th century. Nice tall bracket feet and visually dynamic striping on the drawer fronts. An unusual curved bracing between the bottom board and feet possibly indicating a specific cabinet maker.
