Sketch for a Common Toad, brushdrawing on vat paper

33 x 24 cm

From the collection of the Atelier Fritz Hug

Creation year

late 1960s

Before Fritz tackled an oil painting or a lithograph, he often made a sketch on paper with charcoal pencil and watercolor. This charcoal and brush drawing of a common toad is one such sketch for the oil painting with the same title. The posture, the facial expression, even the highlight in the eye: everything that makes up the character of the painting was already present in this sketch.
