Study of Five Heads

(private collection)

description A sheet of five pencilled head studies observed on the artist's trip to Italy in 1951 and contained within a letter to her aunt, Vera Lachmann. The thin boy (lower right) resembles Anino, whom the artist described as a 'sad little boy who fills his water jugs in the Taverna Medici', and who is the subject of a separate study.
