Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Richard Nathanson

    Tchelitchew developed an anthropological fascination with African physiognomy after reading the works of the influential French writer Raymond Roussel, including Impressions d'Afrique, Nouvelles Impressions d'Afrique and Locus Solus. In 1932 the artist drew a series of studies of African heads in his Paris studio, to which the offered lot may possibly belong.
