Glyptotek Drawings

Charcoal and lithographic crayon on paper
14 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches

Of his process, Dine has said: "In a drawing, I dig into the paper with marks for the ultimate emotional impact." For all the Glyptotek Drawings, Dine chose to work solely with black media. The white patches highlighting the figure at her nape, forehead, and behind her hair are the result of the artist abrading the surface with a knife or scraper.
