Charming drawing of a woman sitting and resting her head on her hand. This was done with a technique that provides us with very soft lines, almost airbrush-like. It's simple and precise.

William S. Schwartz (1896-1977) was a genre-bending painter, lithographer, sculptor, and opera singer perhaps best known for his Symphonic Forms, a series of near-abstract paintings that evoke the experience of listening to music and which earned him the moniker “a musician in color.”
Schwartz was born in Smorgon, Russia, and came to the United States in 1913. After several years in Omaha, Nebraska he settled in Chicago in 1916. In order to study at the Art Institute of Chicago, Schwartz supported himself by singing at operas, vaudeville, and other entertainment venues. His artistic work was quickly recognized and the Art Institute of Chicago featured him in three solo exhibitions, dating 1926, 1929, and 1935.
