This pencil drawing was very loosely (and perhaps quickly) drawn. Frequently, Mr. Savitt would do rough quick-study sketches that formed the basis of a more finished product later on. When on assignment, he would rarely take photos. This sketch measures 10.5 by 14 inches and has neither a mat nor frame. Price $300.

This well-defined sketch of a horse being loaded into a trailer has slight damage — a ripple and slight tear in the lower right-hand corner. But it’s pretty minor stuff. The drawing measures 13.5 by 16.5 inches. Price $325.

Included in the Jan/Feb 2019 issue of UnTacked magazine, this is a limited-edition print, created in the 1980’s and signed by Sam Savitt at that time.
