Album of drawings by George Estall, 19th century
87 Portraits in set
87 pen and ink, pencil, and watercolour drawings, many of which are figure studies of women with an emphasis on costume, made in the late 1860s and 1870s by an apparently unrecorded artist George Estall. The drawings were pasted onto the detached leaves of an album when they entered the collection, and although they were remounted after a recent period of conservation the original distribution and organisation of the album leaves was maintained. Many of the drawings seem to have been cut down from larger sheets, and some contain sketches on both recto and verso.
