It’s an enigmatic expression, his face in repose with eyes alive and focused. A bold outline describes a striking profile - a strong portrayal in red chalk.

This skilful portrait study by Swedish artist, Roland Svenssen (1910-2003) was created in 1930. It’s been suggested that it could be a self-portrait but we feel it’s probably more likely to be his friend, Emil Norrström. Norrström owned the portrait previously and he’s referred to in several letters.

Housed within a good contemporary frame and signed/dated.
