Eduard Veith ( 1856 - 1925): Mutter mit Kind - 1880-1890

I was browsing my usual haunts this morning and I ran across this beautiful study of a mother and child by Eduard Veith (1856-1925). It dates from the period 1880-1890. The superimposed scale lines indicate it was a working drawing perhaps to be scaled up for a painting or mural. If you want more information on the artist just search his name above. Although a simple study in pencil with white highlights, it shows the strength and talent of that artistic hand.
