This portraitback to top
This drawing of Frank Short was purchased for £25, as part of a collection of 43 drawings by William Rothenstein, from Deval and Muir, Bishops Stortford, in April 1970.  It is preparatory to the lithographic portrait, which is a slightly larger composition which carries a dedication to the sitter, and is signed, dated and inscribed on the stone.  Some of the lithographs were printed in red ink (see NPG D20899).
