Putting Up Her Hair

Sir George Clausen (1852-1944)


Chalk on tinted paper

11 ½ x 9 ¼ inches

'A Century of British Art: 1900-1945', Chris Beetles Gallery, 21 June-17 July 2021, No 7

The present chalk drawing by George Clausen of a woman putting up her hair seems to relate to Study of a Female Nude, dated to about 1918, and now in the collections of The Holburne Museum, Bath. That drawing, in chalk and conté, shows the front view of a woman holding a very similar position. These two studies are among several works by the artist to show nudes arranging their hair, the most well-known and finished of which are probably the oils, Primavera (1914) and Girl Braiding Her Hair (circa 1917).
