(1902 - 1983)
Fraser was the consummate professional - expending energy on large and
small panel alike. The following four images are small black and white
images reproduced on sub standard post war austerity paper - yet they
retain detail, balance and tonal control. The drawing is almost unparalleled
for the period. As always Fraser can give his figures moumental gravity
and his landscapes a plausible quaility of the idyllic.

18cms drawing for a Rolex Watch advertisement, "A Letter from Brazil"
- a Rolex customer had lost his watch into the river on a trip up the
Amazon. Amazingly (and suspiciously) on the return journey it was returned
to him, and still working. A good excuse to draw the jungle. from Punch
