This is a vintage 1940s original pencil sketch by artist J. L. Capdeville (Jean Capdeville?) of French gallery owner Jean-Robert Arnaud. This drawing was found at a flea market in the Seattle area along with photos of (and apparently by) artist John-Franklin Koenig, who was Arnaud's partner according to Internet research. Arnaud and Koenig started the art review Cimaise and opened the Galerie Arnaud.
