Antique Original Vintage Signed Rare Maxwell Mandell Wpa-era Charcoal Drawing For Sale

Antique Original Vintage Signed Rare Maxwell Mandell Wpa-era Charcoal Drawing

This offering is of a rare Maxwell Mandell19"X25"charcoal landscape drawing. Very few of his charcoal works survive. He drew this in 1937 while at Gaspé peninsula in Canada. The drawing is labelled "Percé" on the right side where it is signed and dated "37". On the left side it is labelled "Sentinel", the English name for the impressive rock structure. There is excellent tonal use of the charcoal with beautiful shading of the clouds, sand and rocks. The paper is lightweight and the drawing is not coated with any fixative. There is a small piece of paper torn off on the left side and another smaller one at the top. Neither of these will show when the picture is matted, nor will a small tear on top or the tiny pinholes used to fasten the paper when the artist was drawing. Certificate of Authenticity provided.

Maxwell Mandell (1907-2002) was an artist recognized mostly for his work in watercolor and oil, but also known for acrylic, pastel, block prints and lithograph. He studied at the National Academy, Cooper Union, the Art Students League and New York University.

In the 1930’s Maxwell studied and painted in Mexico, spending time in Mexico City, Oaxaca, Cuernavaca and Guadalajara. He was heavily influenced by the social upheaval of the times and by his peers in the WPA. In the 1970’s he again studied and painted in Mexico at the Instituto San Miguel de Allende. For over 30 years he taught art in New York City high schools and at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York.

Throughout his life he explored a variety of subjects as well as styles and media. These included landscapes, still life, cityscapes, portraiture, nude studies and abstracts.

His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums along the east coast from New England to New York to Florida, including group shows at both the Brooklyn Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
