Sol – Standing Nude

Hailing from South Africa, Sol could happily stand for hours – perfect for an artist! David’s first full-length male nude, painted on a half chalk ground with a tempera underpainting – an interesting (though never repeated!) experience of a classic painting technique. With a plain wall as a background there is a purity and natural harmony to this life study.


A “no-nonsense” pose in a restrained range of tones. 1977.
