Title Sketch; John Falter; Horses, Figures, Landscapes
Object Name Sketch
Description Graphite on paper. One side features six sketches in squares. The sketch on the top proper right has a mule drawn wagon that says Doveys on the side. There is a man trying to pull the mule. In the next square it appears the mule has defecated and the man is squatting down. In the next square the mule has moved so that the wagon is over the waste. The man is standing beneath the mule. In the next square the wagon's back wheel is over the waste and there are lots of squiggly lines rising up from the area. In the next square the mule is standing alone and it seems the wagon has disintigrated into a big pile.

On the other side are six square sketches and each sketch is split vertically into three scenes. The scene on the top proper left features rectagular windows. The shade on the first window is up and an old woman reading can be seen. There is a person peeking out from behind the shade in the second scene and there is just a plain rectangle in the third. The scene on the top proper right features rectangular windows--two in each section. In the first section there is a figure leaning out of the window with smoke billowing behind. Beneath that is a figure leaning out the window holding an umbrella. In the next section there is figure leaning out of the top window and throwing water from a bucket into the first section. In the window below that are two people kissing. In the third section there is a person leaping from the top window and a person looking out of the window beneath. In the scene in the middle on the proper left there are figures on the right and left sections in action poses and a lone baseball in the middle section. In the scene in the middle proper right there is a rudimentary farm scene that extends into all three sections. The sections are numbered 1,2, and 3 and "3 Seasons" is written above the scene. In the scene on the bottom proper left there are two figures fishing in a boat towards the top and most of the space is taken up by water filled with very rudimentary fish. In the scene on the bottom proper right are outlines of foliage and "jungle & animals" is written in it.
