The Head of a Young Man

The drawing is on display as part of the Annie Swynnerton retrospective exhibition, ‘Painting Light and Hope‘ at Manchester Art Gallery.

The notice by the drawing reads: “Pencil on paper … This is a rare drawing from the 1870s, produced when Swynnerton was a student at Manchester School of Art. It illustrates her early skill in figure study. The subject may be a life model or someone Swynnerton knew, It could be her future husband, Joseph Swynnerton, which might explain the work’s survival.
