  • PROVENANCE:
    Private Collection, U.K.

    After leaving Camberwell School of Art in 1948, where he had taught for two years, Vaughan worked as a teacher at the Central School of Art until 1958. There he made full use of the regular life classes, some of which he taught. Whilst overseeing his students he frequently made his own demonstration drawings from the male nude life model, in both pencil and in pen and ink. According to his students, Vaughan directed his models with precise poses, often with props such the chair that features here. The present example, which was later worked up in his studio with the addition of wash and gouache, originated as one such drawing.

    We are grateful to Gerard Hastings, author of Drawing to a Close: The Final Journals of Keith Vaughan (Pagham Press, West Sussex, 2012), for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
