Victor Hume Moody, Head Study Of A Girl

Victor Hume Moody, Head Study Of A Girl

A gentle head study of a girl by British artist, Victor Hume Moody (1896-1990). It’s a little reminiscent of the ethereal quality of old master drawings.

Victor Moody was born in London but spent much of his life in the Cotswolds and Malvern. He studied at the Royal College of Art under William Rothenstein and he was a member of the Cheltenham Group of Artists. Between 1935 and 1962, he was the Headmaster of Malvern School of Art. 

The drawing is inscribed on the reverse and housed within a gilt frame.

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.
