François de Hérain, Portrait of a Man, Drawing on Paper



François de Hérain (1877-1962) was a French painter, sculpture and engraver. He realized a number of paintings of scenes in French Algeria and Morocco. He was the author of many art books and he won ‘Le Prix Charles Blanc de l'Académie française des peintures et sculpteurs écrivains d'art’ in 1961. He has drawn many drawings in the same style as the one shown here. He was fascinated by Caucasians, Africans and Middle Easterners. The drawing depicts a portrait of a smiling African man wearing a turban. The drawing is signed and dated in the bottom right corner, as well as framed.
