Title

Shelley and Keats (study)

Description

This grayscale, monotone ink drawing features two figures, a man and a woman, both of which are wearing hats and reading books. The woman is wearing a dress with a frilly collar and cuffs, and is appears to be seated in a chair on the left side of the composition. The man, shown in profile facing the woman on the left, is wearing a suit, and is seated on a bench, his left foot resting on an ottoman. The woman's face is obscured by a book with the word "Shelley" printed on it. The man has a smaller book that says "Keats," but his face is in profile and visible to the viewer. The couple appears to be in a park or garden. On the left side of the composition, there is a flowing fountain with small birds around its edge. The figures are drawn in a sketch-like style and detail and volume are implied with the use of short and long strokes.
