Pencil Portraits

These are 'only' the work of an unidentified art student in the 1930s or 40s but there is something quite beautiful and challenging about them I think. The delicacy of the work with the brown pencil is perhaps not completely captured in the scans, nor is the fact that they float on pieces of paper much larger than the space occupied by the sketch itself.
