Glyptotek Drawings

Charcoal and lithographic crayon on plastic sheet
17 3/4 x 15 1/2 inches

One of the most celebrated sculptures from antiquity, the Barberini Faun depicts a drunken, sleeping satyr, sprawled on a rock. In this sheet, Dine emphasized the satyr's dreamlike state and heightened the sculpture's sensual abandon with light washes that soften the rocky bed.
