For my 300th item I thought I'd switch to something different from Down Under. It is a pen and wash drawing of a Native American. It was bought a few years back at the Saturday market in Rozelle, Sydney. I have not been able to track down the signature. I'm hoping that someone on CW will help me with this.
I hope I've used the right terminology here: Native American?
I'm also after advice as to whether this is an image of a First Nations man, a Canadian Aboriginal man or an indigenous person of the Americas.
It has been drawn freely with a pen. It looks as if the outline is a continuous stroke moving from one point around the sheet of quality textured paper. The brown wash has been highlighted with some white stokes of the brush and there are faint hints of green (?).
Any hints as to the identity of the subject or the artist would be appreciated.
