Sidney Byers, Portrait Of A Standing Nude

Sidney Byers, Portrait Of A Standing Nude

A fine early 20th-century portrait of a standing nude by British painter, Sidney Byers. It feels a little more sensual than you tend to find with many studio nudes so perhaps he knew the model.

Byers was represented at the Royal Academy in the Summer of 1943 and 1944.

The portrait is housed within a good maple frame.

Overall size: 23½” x 34” / 60cm x 86cm
Year of creation: c. 1940
Provenance: England

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
