Very Early Jack Savitsky Drawing

This is an early drawing of 3 galloping horses and a dog on paper using ink, crayon and colored
pencils by the famous folk artist Jack Savitsky. It is rare to find his drawings without a title on
the front or on verso and undated. The drawing is signed in the lower left and does not include
the 3 dots after his name which he began using in 1973. The treatment of the radiating rising sun
in the background is comparable to some of his earlier oil paintings from the 1960’s. We believe
this to be among his earliest drawings. The drawing itself is 9 in. X 12 in. and the framed size is
10 ½ in. X 13 ½ in. There is a very small stain or watermark on the body of the middle horse as
seen in the photos otherwise it is in excellent condition.
