While the expectation is that Kentís paintings were more freely executed, it is surprising to find a large number of preliminary drawings for paintings. While some are sketches for figures within a painting, such as Recumbent Nudes with Ringed Sun Painting Study and Greenland Hunter Painting Study II, others are outline drawings with transfer grid lines on tracing paper used to transfer the image to canvas.
