Regular priceSale price
Here we have a stunning large drawing of a seated nude woman by listed artist Preston Heather Kortebein, who was a graduate of the Chicago Institute of Art. This fantastic artwork was created in 1952, so Kortebein was early on in their career at the Institute. The pose and tone of the woman in the artwork speaks volumes, and it just a true beauty on so many levels. It's so well executed but take a look at the pics and take it in for yourself.
Here's more info on the artist:
“Preston Heather Kortebein was born in 1932 in Highland Park, Illinois, graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, recipient of an honorable mention in the 1958 foreign traveling fellowship competition: received the Robert Rice Jenkins memorial Prize.”
The 1950s artwork comes out an art collector's estate in Chicago. The piece is signed "Kortebein" and dated 1951.
The framed vintage drawing measures 23" tall by 17" wide. There is a some light patina throughout the drawing from age. The frame is new and more utilitarian than quality. It looks fine though. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
