Lot Essay

This small oil sketch bears all the hallmarks of Ansdell's style in the detailed brushwork and fine composition. It was probably drawn from life as evidenced by the unique character study of the ghillie slumped in exhaustion, or boredom, on his basket.

We are grateful to Sarah Kellam, née Ansdell, for her assistance in preparing this catalogue entry. Sarah welcomes enquiries via her website, with particular regard to the catalogue raisonné that she is compiling on her great-great-grandfather.
