Cadmus, Paul (American, 1904-1999). STUDY FOR "DAVID AND GOLIATH," colored crayons on tan paper, circa 1970-1971. Signed in pink crayon, lower right. 12 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. In excellent condition.

Provenance: the artist to John Anderson, Estate of Jon Anderson.

This is one of several studies for Cadmus's painting "David and Goliath" from 1971, some of them very quick sketches, others very finished drawings. The painting, and this study, depict the young Anderson as David and the older Cadmus as Goliath. Jon Anderson (1937-2018) met Paul Cadmus in 1965, and the two were partners for 36 years until Cadmus's death in 2000. Cadmus drew and painted Anderson hundreds of times.
