Harry Carmean drawings of ballet dancers

Harry Carmean generally preferred to draw the nude figure and only rarely drew models in costume. Fortunately for us, he did make some beautiful drawings of ballet dancers done from live models, some of which ended up in being used in his ballet paintings done in the 1990's on through the 2000's. The photo below was taken in one of Carmean's life drawing classes held at Art Center in the early 1980's.
