Two Gesturel Sketches: Flowing Hair Liberty and a Full Figure

Description (Brief)
Gasparro used both side of this sheet of paper to make gesture drawings—drawings done quickly to capture the motion of life. Here we have a bust of a Phrygian—capped Lady Liberty on one side of the paper and a full figure on the other.
