MARSHALL FREDERICKS ONLINE EXHIBITIONS
in 1930, at age 22, Marshall Fredericks won the prestigious Herman N. Matzen Scholarship while a student at the Cleveland School of Art. The $1000 scholarship ($15,000 in 2020 dollars) afforded Fredericks the opportunity to travel and study art abroad.
In this previous post you can read that Fredericks first destination was to meet his mentor Carl Milles in Sweden. After Fredericks left Sweden, he traveled extensively through Europe, and eventually went to the North African country of Morocco. While there, Fredericks made a series of sketches of men and women that he saw on the streets. In these drawings we see fez wearing men, a Berber woman playing a rebab and on ox carrying a heavy load.
These beautiful rarely seen sketches are from 1931 and showcase the drawing talents of Fredericks.
