WELLES, ORSON. 1915-1985.
7 original gouache on paper sketches, various sizes (8 x 10 1/2 to 15 x 18 inches), being costume sketches for an unknown Shakespearean or other period production, unsigned, smaller leaves with rough margins, some soiling, thumbing and creasing. Together with pencil sketch of courtier, lacking color.
Welles' bold illustrative style is on display here as he executes costume ideas for young courtiers, a friar, and a robed court figure (clearly Welles himself).
