William Woodward (American/New Orleans, 1861-1939), 'Nude', pencil drawing, initialed 'W.W.' lower right, sight 13 in. x 22.75in. Provenance: Collection of Will Logan, great-grandson of the artist. Note: As a teacher at Newcomb College, William Woodward strongly encouraged his students to attend life drawing classes using nude models. Plaster casts or draped figures did not convey the grace, proportion and symmetry that were inherently revealed in the nude figure. In his 1906 article entitled 'Drawing from the Nude in the Education of an Architect', Woodward espoused his support of life drawing classes and used his drawings of nudes as illustrations.
