Drawing. Design. IllustrationcolorJump to full detailsRequest from Special Collections

Summary:Four figures, almost 'stick-like', are in various poses. The bottom left figure is standing with the right foot forward and weight on the slightly bent left leg. The upper body is leaning back with the head tipped to the right side. The right arm is extended to the mid-back-Rt position while the left arm curves across the front of the body. The bottom right figure is seated with both knees drawn up, feet on the floor, the arms around knees and the head bent forward. The top right figure is seated with one leg bent, foot on the floor and arms around that leg. The other leg is extended, resting on the floor. The top left figure is less distinct but appears to be shown from behind with the weight on the left leg and the right leg lifted and bent (the foot is off the floor). The arms are not shown, nor is the head. This is undated.
