This is a framed pastel of a nude woman facing a wall on a bluish grey background. She is covering her face. This framed piece measures 19 by 17.5 inches in the frame and the artwork measures 7.5 inches by 5.5 inches wide. It is signed by McBride and there is handwriting on the back that "reserves the rights."
My favorite antique store sold this years ago, but I do not know much about it, or if there is anything worth knowing other than it is interesting.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry again, I hope you are well, and I wish you a Happy New Year 2021.
The presented object appears to be a pastel drawing on paper with the measurements of 7.5 inches by 5.5 inches. The drawing depicts a nude and is signed or the artist's name is named on the reverse side with McBride. This artwork was made in the middle of the second half of the 20th century. Sadly no further information regarding the biography of this artist is mentioned in reference books or similar databases.
Works by this artist were recently not offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 60 to 120 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
