Pencil Portrait

This is a charming, if somewhat foxed portrait of a boy that we found yesterday, again in Lewes. It's only a small little thing but all the more sweet for that and although not perfect there is some real delicacy in some of the drawing. The back is covered in modern brown paper which leads me to think that this is either a marriage of an old frame with an old sketch that someone has put together recently, or a dealer has been into the back to see if there was any information. I haven't opened up the back again yet myself but I may do that to have a look too.
