Jeanet Dreskin:

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Jeanet Steckler Dreskin, born 1921, has spent the majority of her professional career as painter, printmaker, and educator in Greenville, South Carolina. For four years, 1938 to 1942, she studied with Will Henry Stevens and Xavier Gonzalez at Newcomb College of Tulane University, and anatomy in night classes with John McCrady.
Now her paintings are in the permanent collection of the Greenville County Museum of Art, Greenville, S.C.; National Museum of American Art, Washington DC; the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA; the E. Hampton Museum, NY; the Zimmerli Museum, New Brunswick, NJ; the Gibbes Museum, Charleston, SC; SC State Art Collection; Texas Art Association Collection, Austin, Texas; Imperial Chemicals, Manchester, England; J. Strobel of W. Sohne, Munich, Germany etc.

I will be posting two original colored pencil and graphite Anatomy drawings on paper mounted to linen. Both pieces are original and are a unique piece of the both the artist and the history of medical illustration.
In this colored pencil, gouache and graphite drawing drawn on heavy weight paper and mounted to linen is a medical illustration of the Movement of the Foot, Pronation and Supination.
The piece is approx. 66" x 40" and is hung by a wooden rod and string. The bottom also has a wood rod fixed, but due to the age, the paper and linen have started to tear away. This does not effect the image in any way.
This piece is also signed by Jeanet Dreskin and appears to be done during the same time period as the other piece I have posted.
This piece and the other are a rare and wonderful medical illustration by a well known and established artist.
If you have any questions or need additional images, please feel free to contact me.
