Lot Essay

The subject of the present sketch represents a marked deviation from the rest of Shannon’s output and as such is indicative of other directions that he may have considered for his art, but then dismissed. The dark inverted figure of a woman wearing a hat and a long cloak (on the left) accentuates the experimental, casual character of the work.
