Raphaël De Buck (1902-1986) - Liggend Naakt
Pencil drawing - Hand signed - 1960

Beautiful large pencil drawing by Raphael De Buck, with a typical and beautiful depiction of a nude with a dreamy, mysterious gaze like the Buck could capture very well in his artworks.

The Belgian painter, draughtsman, watercolour maker, and illustrator Raphaël de Buck (Rafaël De Buck) from Ghent wast best known for his works of women's figures, such as ballerinas, bar girls, ladies all dressed up, and nudes. He was particularly popular with collectors, especially at the then bourgeoisie, just like Jan Frans De Boever, Piet Lippens, Jos Verdegem, Domien Ingels, Geo Verbanck, or Karel Van Belle were well known and loved in Ghent at the time.

A contemporary of De Buck described his work as follows: 'A dream world filled with enchanting young women, who always seem to be waiting for a love adventure’.
This beautiful, large drawing is a very good example of this.

Very beautiful, professionally, framed behind glass, with matching mat, in a good gilded frame.
