Cora J. Gordon: Portrait Sketches

Today I found two more small portrait sketches by Cora J. Gordon. They were drawn in pencil on the backing card used to frame an etching.

This lady, with hair tied back is looking down, apparently focused intently on something.


This lady has a similar pose, but very different features.

The backing card was made by "F.H. Barton, Artists' Colourman, Print Seller & Frame Maker" of Bristol.


Having rescued these drawings from their obscurity behind the Spanish etchings I'm going to place them in frames and hang them on the wall.
