Regular priceSale price
Here we have a rare exhibit drawing of a boy in overalls by Minnesota artist Etta Wolpert. The mid-century art scene in Minnesota was hopping, and there's just something about this beauty that rose to the surface. And if you're looking for provenance, we have multiple tags on the reverse. Let's get to it, because we have two different titles:

The 1950s artwork comes out of an estate of high end collector from Saint Paul. I believe the drawing is done in ink. The piece is signed Wolpert '54 in the lower right corner.
The vintage framed artwork measures 19" tall by 15" wide. There is cool patina from age everywhere. The edge of the matting is discolored from age (see close up pic). The original black frame has some wear as well. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
